In Missouri, a legislature has a bright idea. De facto gun registration via public schools.
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.
Both houses of the Missouri legislature are under GOP control so it is unlikely this will see the light of day. It is, however, instructive to see how these people think.
