Proposed Missouri bill would require residents to own AR-15s

Proposed Missouri bill would require residents to own AR-15s

No, this is not the Onion.

A lawmaker in Missouri recently introduced a bill in the state House that would mandate virtually every adult Missourian own an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle by the end of next year.

McDaniel also introduced a separate House Bill two days before HB-1108 that would require state residents to own a hand gun.

McDaniel said he introduced the bill to "make a point" about legal mandates and to show "the absurdity of the opposite side" and the "requirements and barriers for law-abiding citizens", according to the Associated Press.

The bills from McDaniel, a former deputy sheriff in Pemiscot County, would offer tax credits for people purchasing firearms. "Any resident qualifies as a resident after August 28, 2019, and does not own an AR-15 shall purchase an AR-15 no later than one year after qualifying as a resident". The other bill would require everyone who is 18 to 35 years old to have an AR-15.

Still, it's not clear what would happen to residents refusing to get strapped, as neither bill addresses penalties for those who do not dutifully go gun shopping. One bill would require any adult who is legally allowed to legally can possess firearms to do so. "Any resident qualifies as a resident after August 28, 2019, and does not own an AR-15 shall purchase an AR-15 no later than one year after qualifying as a resident". Even presuming that only twenty percent of Missourians already own handguns, that would still put some 3.6 million residents under the law's mandate.

The proposed bill does not state if there will be any repercussions for residents who do not purchase an AR-15.

But don't go bounding off to the hunting supply store yet: At this point, neither of McDaniel's bills have been assigned a committee, much less scheduled for a vote. The National Rifle Association didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
