Bring it to the floor immediately and demand every one of them go on record as for or against.

Missouri has already fought in one Civil War. Guess if the politicians want to start a second one, now is as good a time as any.

Would be interesting to see what dynamic evolves if the NRA finances a credible recall against two or three of them once they go on record.

What we really need is assault-politician regulation.

All elected officials must submit to yearly audits.

Any politician whose net worth increases by more than the inflation rate while in office goes to prison.

In response, Missouri gun owners should give Democrats 90 days to leave the state.

This bill appears to be a nuzzling up to the Obama machine. Little else.

I failed to post the article link.

EXAMINER.COM

“The bill has only been introduced and read twice; it’s a go-nowhere bill but designed, I think, to test the waters as we’ve seen numerous bills of similar sort introduced in other states,” she added before posting the contact information of the Democrats proposing the measure.”

It’s funny when leftists get so much into their “echo chamber” that they think they can actually be up front about their goals

instead of stealthily achieving them through incrementalism.

“Come and get em boys.”

They will just burn you out. Proven tactic, no repercussions. (so far)

Or their sniper may just shoot your wife/child/dog first.

Actually the shock factor IS the first step of incrementalism.

It is time to fight fire with fire people! Parallel escalation; They want to make large numbers of conservatives into felons with a stroke of a pen by making certain guns owned mostly by conservatives illegal.

Think this this through. They want to make us criminals by making what we value illegal.

WE HAVE TO COUNTER. We have to answer with legislation introduced into Congress and every state legislature making abortion the equal to murder, and anyone who contributes to it a felon.

They want to make me a felon with a stroke of a pen? Fine, lets dance!

Introduce legislation that makes it punishable by 10 years in prison to propose legislation that violates the 2nd amendment rights of the state’s citizens.

If there were any men in MO, they’d demand that those voting for this theft of their Second Amendment rights resign their seats. They lied when they swore to “uphold the Constitution.”

In no way, shape or form, do these actions reflect the words in your oath of office, i.e., “protect and defend the Constitution”, therefore, my answer is:

“I Refuse!”

If such a bill were ever to be signed into law, I suggest all owners of the firearms in question coordinate their turn-in by massing at the state capitol on the same day with their weapons. Of course, since they will no longer have these weapons they should bring along all their no longer needed ammo and magazines to turn in as well. To maintain order, I suggest they mass in a circle around the capitol. Then, to assure they are in compliance, they should call out the governor and the bills sponsors and all legislators who voted for it so the exchange can take place most effectively. Then I suggest an exchange take place.

Eric, because I live just to the South of you in AR, you know you can give your firearms to me anytime. I’d hate for you to get in trouble with the law. I’m just thinking of you, bro.

In the past 10 years, Missouri’s 65 percent Republican House and 75 percent Republican Senate have:

Passed concealed carry
Overrode governor’s veto on concealed carry
Ended a Jim Crow-era “permit to purchase” handgun law
passed law protecting gun ranges from nuisance suits
exempted the state capitol building from list of places where CCW is not allowed
Passed a castle doctrine
lowered the age for concealed carry
eliminated a state FFL requirement to purchase NFA weapons
added suppressors to the list of allowed NFA items
lowered the CCW age for military personnel to 18
made switchblade knives legal

Yeah, I’m sure this ridiculous bill has a good chance of passing . . . (who do they think they’re kidding?)

Missouri is the wrong state to try this kind of measure on. I’ve lived here more than 15 years. There are more libertarians here than I have seen in any state. I had a plumber bring his gun case to my house because he wanted to brag about his guns. Showed me various pistols, rifles, an AK-47, AR-15, and a MAC-10.

They were a hobby for him and he just liked taking them to the range. This guy was very nice and honest, but he would easily be in the group that you would only get their guns when you pry them from his cold dead fingers. Now imagine the “not so nice” folks in MO. Yah, never gonna happen.

why not use this as evidence these law makers know NOTHING about law or how law works.

It seems like we should prank legislators to “end women’s sufferage” (ala comedy skit)

“For the safety of children” abolish the bill of individual rights.

petition to legalize human on human consumption (canabalism)

etc.

Then turn around and show these elected officials to be idiots.
