ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Ever since the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, gun control has been a hot topic. Now comes word of a Missouri lawmaker who wants any parent who owns guns to notify their child’s school.
The lawmaker says she hopes the already filed bill will bring awareness to schools and to parents about keeping their guns locked up.
It’s the next idea in a long list of proposed ideas for gun control, making it mandatory for parents to notify their child’s school about their gun supply.
“I am not trying to take away the gun rights of any parents or any other citizens I believe in the second amendment,” says State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.
My guess is that between now and the day after the next time she stands for reelection, this tyrant-legislator is more likely to be involuntarily retired by voters she misrepresents than that this bill would be voted on by the full legislature. I could be wrong. I don’t think Jefferson City is looney-tooney enough to pass and sign this bill into law, but if I’m wrong, two words, “private schools”; and one more word, “homeschooling”.
