    Missouri bill demands parents report gun ownership to public schools

    Missouri bill demands parents report gun ownership to public schools
    By GOPUSA Staff January 25, 2013 6:50 am


    JEFFERSON CITY - Any parent who owns a firearm would be required to notify their child's school in writing under legislation proposed in the Missouri Senate.

    The bill, introduced by University City Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, would make it a crime to fail to report gun ownership to a school. It would also criminalize failure to prevent a child from illegally possessing a firearm and the negligent storage of a firearm.

    "Since August of last year, there have been more than a dozen incidents involving teenagers and guns in just (my) senate district alone," Chappelle-Nadal said. "In most cases, the guns have been stolen from an unsecured place in teh home and then used in robberies, car-jackings and even murder."

    She said she feels like the debate over gun control has largely ignored the plague of gun violence in the urban core. That's especially true in Missouri, she said, where the legislature is dominated by rural and suburban Republicans.

    "I want my rural colleagues to know that my constituents are just as important as their constituents," she said. "I don't want to be ignored, and I certainly don't want my district to be ignored."

    This bill has nothing to do with gun control, Chappelle-Nadal said. It's about trying to force parents to be responsible gun owners.

    "Responsible gun owners have nothing to fear from my legislation, and nobody... is talking about taking anyone's guns away," she said.

    However, she recognizes that the chances her legislation becomes law are "probably zero," even though she is willing to drop the provision mandating reporting gun ownership to local schools.

    Republican state Sen. Brian Nieves, a Washington Republican, agrees with her assessment of the bill's chances.

    "This bill is dead on arrival," he said. "This bill will not become law in the state of Missouri. It's just not going to happen."

    What would the school do with this information,perhaps strip search he/she as they enter, or perhaps assign other children to watch this dangerous person for his guilt of having parents own a firearm.

    Make no mistake here folks America is in deep trouble with this type of thinking,rather then tackle the social problems of broke homes, low moral standards, poor public school education, instead we attack honest working people with stupid laws. Castro and other third world dictators would be proud of our growing communist party within the Democrat party.
