Missouri: Anti-Gun Legislation Introduced That Would Turn Law-Abiding Gun Owners into Felons
Yesterday, state Representatives Rory Ellinger (D-86) and Jill Schupp (D-88) introduced House Bill 545, anti-gun legislation that would turn many law-abiding gun owners into felons. HB 545 would ban the possession, sale, transfer or manufacture of certain semi-automatic rifles and magazines that are capable of holding more than ten rounds. HB 545 contains no grandfather clauses. Therefore, under HB 545, if you are currently in possession of the semi-automatic rifles and magazines outlined in this bill, you will have 90 days from the effective date of this legislation to surrender, destroy or remove these currently lawful items from Missouri. If you fail to do so, you could be charged with a Class C felony if this legislation is passed and enacted into law. Compelling law-abiding citizens to surrender their firearms and magazines is unconstitutional, wrong and another failed attempt to reduce crime. Criminals—by definition—violate laws, especially gun control laws. They will never surrender their firearms, or comply with any gun control scheme. HB 545 would only affect the lawful, while ignoring the actual problem of violent criminals who misuse firearms. While no action has been taken on House Bill 545, please stay tuned to www.nraila.org as we monitor this criminalizing piece of legislation. MISSOURIANS NEED TO GET ON THE PHONE or EMAIL and Contact each and every State REP. , SENATOR , Congress , Govenor ect.... And put the word to these Politicians that if they Vote for this they will loose votes for re-election and that we as Law Abiding Free Legal American Citizens will REFUSE TO TURN IN OUR WEAPONS AND COMPLY !
