[Video] This Law Would Require Parents to Tell Their Child’s School About Their Gun Ownership
Maria Chappelle-Nadal is a state senator in Missouri. She is a Democrat. She says she supports the Second Amendment.
She also wants to pass a new gun control bill in her state.
This bill seeks to keep guns out of the hands of minors who may use them for crime.
So, what does she have in mind. Well, she only wants to make it a legal requirement for parents to report their gun ownership to their children’s schools.
Sounds reasonable, right? No, no it does not. Nothing about that sounds even remotely reasonable.
According to the Huffington Post,
Democratic state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Senate Bill 124 would make it a crime for parents to fail to report gun ownership to a school, punishable by a fine of up to $100. It also bars parents from failing to properly lock or secure firearms, and would punish parents who fail to stop their child from illegally possessing a firearm…
…”It is lunacy that here are parents out there who know their children possess guns and do nothing… I am not trying to take away the guns rights of any parents or any other citizens. I believe in the Second Amendment,” Chappelle-Nadal told KSDK. “[The bill] encourages parents to make sure they store their guns safely in their home. It also gives the school districts the opportunity to help encourage gun safety in the community and in the household.”
Chappelle-Nadal said in a statement that the Second Amendment does not stop a 12 year old from shooting a 12 year old. Wait, what?! Of course it doesn’t say that. That’s why we have murder, attempted murder and assault/battery laws on the books.
Hopefully the Missouri legislature is smart enough not to pass anything as asinine as this.
