    Missouri Dems Introduce Alarming Gun Confiscation Bill Giving Law-Abiding Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Certain Firearms or Become Felons | TheBlaze.com
    2/14/2014
    Democrats in Missouri introduced startling anti-gun legislation that would require gun owners to hand over their legally purchased so-called “assault weapons” to “the appropriate law enforcement agency for destruction” within 90 days.
    Under the proposed bill, “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.”
    Here are some additional provisions found in the gun control bill:
    (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.
    So essentially the law would turn a law-abiding gun owner today, into a felon tomorrow. State Reps. Rory Ellinger (D-86) and Jill Schupp (D-88) reportedly introduced the anti-gun legislation, House Bill 545, this week.


    Gun confiscation is being talked about more and more by lawmakers as a means to get so-called “assault weapons,” which are really semi-automatic rifles, off the streets. Democrats in California last week also proposed legislation that called for the potential confiscation of the state’s 166,000 legally purchased semi-automatic rifles.
    California Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg (D-Sacramento) defended the massive gun control package, saying “we can save lives.”

    Over a year old. Bill is dead and gone.

    Thanks & my bad, just saw that on a separate site. I didn't see a date on the initial story I read, and with everything going on it never crossed my mind that it could be an older story.

    Every State has at least one blow hard Libtard who will introduce legislation like this. They know full well it does not have a snow flake's chance in hell of even getting out of committee, but they do it anyway to get "street cred" with their fellow Libtards.

    Don't sweat that they introduce the bill. It means as much as an upstate New York Congressman introducing a bill mandating the ownership of a belt fed machine gun. It will NEVER pass

    True, but sometimes it's throwing a rock in the water trying to make it float.
