Missouri bill would imprison legislators proposing gun control

A Missouri lawmaker is proposing to send colleagues to prison for introducing gun control legislation — a plan even its sponsor acknowledges has no chance of passage.

Rep. Mike Leara, a St. Louis County Republican, said Tuesday that his bill is a statement of principle. It would make lawmakers guilty of a felony punishable by up to four years in prison if they introduce legislation restricting gun rights.

Rep. Stacey Newman, a St. Louis Democrat, called the measure “unconstitutional” and said she will go directly to prison if the bill passes. Newman is sponsoring a measure requiring guns to be sold by licensed dealers and forcing dealers to conduct background checks.

The proposal criminalizing gun control legislation comes as a Missouri House committee was scheduled to consider a Republican proposal that would nullify all federal gun laws.

7. No one *needs* to propose anti-gun laws

And since all our rights are now supposed to be viewed through the prism of what someone else says we do or do not need I say, "go for it."

"Rep. Rory Ellinger proposes Missouri assault weapon ban
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Possessing an assault weapon in Missouri would be illegal under a bill that has been introduced by a state House Democrat.

Rep. Rory Ellinger, of University City, filed a bill this week that would require gun owners to give up their semi-automatic weapons within 90 days of the measure's passage. Failure to surrender an assault weapon would result in a felony charge.

It would also be illegal to manufacture or import such weapons in the state. The measure would exempt state and federal law enforcement from the ban.

The bill has not been referred to a House committee, and the Republican-led Legislature is unlikely to act on it.

"4. Any person who, prior to the effective date of this law, was legally in possession of an assault weapon or large capacity magazine shall have ninety days from such effective date to do any of the following without being subject to prosecution:

(1) Remove the assault weapon or large capacity magazine from the state of Missouri;

(2) Render the assault weapon permanently inoperable; or

(3) Surrender the assault weapon or large capacity magazine to the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction, subject to specific agency regulations.

5. Unlawful manufacture, import, possession, purchase, sale, or transfer of an assault weapon or a large capacity magazine is a class C felony."
