Republicans Turning the Table on Democrats? Missouri bill would require adults aged 18-34 to own AR-15

Recommended Posts

Wondering if this is a tactic to go the completely opposite direction to all the anti-2A bills recently introduced.  There has to be some catch...

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KRCG) - A Missouri state representative's proposed bill could have people up in arms.

House Bill No. 1108, sponsored by Rep. Andrew McDaniel, R-Deering, stated that "[e]very resident of this state shall own at least one AR-15."

The bill would establish the "McDaniel Militia Act," which would require those aged 18-34 not legally prohibited to possess a firearm to own a semi-automatic rifle that is modeled on the AR-15 design by ArmaLite, Inc.

"Any person who qualifies as a resident on August 28, 2019, and who does not own an AR-15 shall have one year to purchase an AR-15. 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 bill stated.

The government shouldn't force people to use rights.  The government's job is to ensure that citizens are able to utilize their rights if they choose to do so.  

IMHO this is political grand standing that a politician is using to promote themselves. 

 

They did force us to buy health insurance, so there has been precedence.

That's what I was wondering, was it introduced as a 180 degree bill for PRO 2A laws, maybe to offset all the crazy new ANTI 2A bills (Red Flag, registration, magazines, etc.) that the Democrats are pushing lately? Show the Dems how off the wall Pro 2a Laws can be?

Or, is this guy really serious, and knows something we don't know?

Ahhh, just what I thought...

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Missouri lawmaker says he knows his legislation requiring every 18- to 35-year-old in the state to own an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle has no chance of passing.

But Republican state Rep. Andrew McDaniel, of Deering, says he hopes that it and another bill he introduced help to "make a point on mandates in general." The second bill would require adults who can legally possess firearms to do so. Both bills would offer tax credits.

McDaniel says it "points out the absurdity of the opposite side," and their proposals to "add more requirements and barriers for law-abiding citizens." The former sheriff's deputy says he decided, "let's get back at them."

Sadly, the "other side" won't give a crap or understand. Their mind is already made up.

Yep, it's PAST time for Republicans to use the Dems tactics against them, instead of being used as floor mats, like they usually are.
