Missouri House Bill Makes Proposing Gun Control Illegal

Photo Credit: CBS St. Louis A Missouri lawmaker is proposing to send colleagues to prison for introducing gun control legislation — a plan that even its sponsor acknowledges has no chance of passage but nonetheless highlights the increasingly strident tone of gun measures in Missouri’s generally pro-gun Legislature.

Rep. Mike Leara said Tuesday that he considers his bill 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.

“I have no illusions about the bill making it through the legislative process, but I want it to be clear that the Missouri House will stand in defense of the people’s constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” Leara, a Republican from suburban St. Louis, said in a written statement. He declined further comment.

    Thanks for MO and rest of our un-united states. Stuff all democrats in the liberal, obama lovin’ states and let the world know they’re unarmed; they should take the cops’ guns away too. Then, flush those states down the tube into the sewer system where they belong, immersed in high volumes of what they generate the most of….crap.
