Missouri Law Will Force Gun Owners to Register with Schools

A Missouri Democrat wants to force parents to inform school officials of firearms ownership.

“We are not trying to take away anyone’s gun, period,” State Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal told KMOV in St. Louis. “We’re not even asking what kind of gun you have. We want the school district to be able to say, ‘you know what, there are some really terrible things going on right now,’ and we need to be able to talk to the parent that we know they have a gun and make sure that there is security, that this gun is stored securely.”

The proposed law would criminalize and impose a $100 fine on parents who fail to inform public and private school officials and $1,000 if they are found guilty of “negligent storage of a firearm” and fail to notify a school that they own a firearm.

“It’s the next idea in a long list of proposed ideas for gun control: Making it mandatory for parents to notify their children’s schools about their gun supply,” reports KCTV in Kansas City.

Timothy Birdnow, writing for the American Thinker, believes the proposed law “is intended to be as broad as possible, to open the door for more and stricter regulations down the road. Were Chappelle-Nadal putting forth a serious bill she would have specific definitions and a very circumscribed legal requirement. It is open-ended for a reason.”

Birdnow argues the law is part of a larger effort to brainwash children and turn them against the Second Amendment and the idea of gun ownership. “The fact is the Left has wanted all vestiges, indeed, all thoughts of firearm ownership washed away,” he writes.
