Missourians would be required to purchase an AR-15 under proposed law

Missouri lawmaker introduces bill that would require residents to own AR-15 semi-automatic rifles Missourians would be required to purchase an AR-15 under proposed law

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.

Days after introducing the bill, McDaniel also proposed a similar measure requiring legally-eligible residents to purchase a tax-subsidized handgun, according to the Riverfront Times. "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", the bill reads.

Andrew McDaniel sponsored House Bill 1108, known as the McDaniel Militia Act, and presented it to his fellow lawmakers on February 28.

What's the process of buying an AR-15 in Arizona? It also offered a tax credit for buying a gun.

On Monday, state lawmakers debated a separate measure that would allow concealed weapons to be carried in public places that now ban guns.

The legislation comes amid a session in which a top aide to a Missouri state senator was arrested after a loaded gun fell to the floor during a fight at a Jefferson City bar. "Republicans should regroup during the spring legislative break and come back ready to do real work that moves Missouri forward".

McDaniel was elected in 2014 and represents parts of Dunklin and Pemiscot Counties.

Sadly for felons, who would probably would love to get in on this new proposal, the bill does carve out an exception; it only requires compliance from those who are legally permitted to possess firearms.

In contrast to McDaniel's Militia Act, the handgun-focused bill specifies that Missourians purchase "a pistol, revolver, or other firearm created to be held in one hand that is capable of firing.22 caliber ammunition or larger". The National Rifle Association didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

According to the Missouri House of Representatives website, a hearing on the bill has not been scheduled and it is not now on a House calendar.
