This is Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-Jefferson City), and her ideas of acceptable gun control make Michael Bloomberg look tame:
A proposed state law in Missouri would make it a crime for parents or guardians not to tell school officials if they have guns in their home. Parents could also be prosecuted for gun crimes committed by their children under the same law even if the crimes were committed with a legal weapon.
If passed into law Missouri State Senate Bill 549 could slap parents with a $100 fine if they didn’t tell their children’s school about their gun. This is the second time State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-Jefferson City) has introduced the legislation. The same law was introduced last year as Senate Bill 124 but it never got anywhere. She introduced the newest version in December.
Believe it or not, Chappelle-Nadal claims to support the Second Amendment. I’m pretty sure that she has no idea at all what it means.
On the upside, she’s apparently sort of the Sheila Jackson Lee of Missouri politics, her peers do not take her schemes seriously, and she has little to no actual influence.
