Missouri bill would require adults aged 18-34 to own AR-15
by Gregory Dailey, KRCG StaffFriday, March 15th 2019

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.

Sounds like a scheme so the government can keep track of who owns AR-15s. lol :o)

Once right wingers figure out that they will be required to show proof of ownership, this bill will collapse.

This is the government confiscation list that they are paranoid of. :o)

If it passes AR-15s are going to get expensive in MO.

What happens to those residents who can’t afford to buy a AR-15? Will they have their citizenships revoked?

Its actually just a tax credit law. You get tax credits if you buy a particular brand and class of weapon (the AR-15).

Which of course is another way for gubernment to keep track.

Missouri lawmaker: Bill requiring AR-15s not meant to pass

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Missouri lawmaker who's introduced measures that would force adults to own handguns and young adults to own AR-15 semi-automatic rifles said he's trying to make the point that mandates are bad and doesn't actually want to require gun ownership.

"The other side of the aisle loves mandates, so I'm trying to get them to make an argument against mandates," Republican state Rep. Andrew McDaniel, of the rural Bootheel community of Deering, said in a telephone interview.

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. Two state House members also were involved in an incident at another Jefferson City bar that left one of them with a black eye. The incidents occurred after a House committee heard debate on legislation that would allow concealed weapons in public places that currently ban guns.


"From alcohol-fueled bar fights, to advancing legislation that would allow anyone to carry a concealed weapon anywhere from bars to daycares, to mandating gun ownership with a tax subsidy for gun manufacturers, the Missouri GOP rarely wastes an opportunity to embarrass themselves or our state," the Missouri Democratic Party said in a written statement. "Republicans should regroup during the spring legislative break and come back ready to do real work that moves Missouri forward."

The bills from McDaniel, a former deputy sheriff in Pemiscot County, would offer tax credits for people purchasing firearms. One bill would require any adult who is legally allowed to legally can possess firearms to do so. The other bill would require everyone who is 18 to 35 years old to have an AR-15. Under federal law, people must be at least 21 to buy handguns from a licensed dealer and at least 18 to buy a rifle.

McDaniel said people need to be able to protect themselves, particularly in rural areas where a single deputy may be patrolling a large geographic area. McDaniel said the legislation "points out the absurdity of the opposite side," and their proposals to "add more requirements and barriers for law-abiding citizens." He said he decided, "Let's get back at them."

He said no outside group is helping him with the legislation. The National Rifle Association didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.


No hearings on either of the bills are scheduled, and McDaniel said that "of course" the legislation wouldn't pass "as is." He says if anything moves forward, he would focus on tax credits and strip out the other elements.

"I would never try to mandate anyone do anything against their will," he added.

Stupid Onion-style bill. But it's supposed to be. Not a serious measure. "But why are lawmakers wasting time with silly nonsense like this?" Well, I don't care because I don't live in a shithole like Missouri.

Must have been so shitty for him to see all the retards of his side of the aisle express support for this mandate.

"is he fighting to remove the mandate on car insurance?"

Not going to pretend I know enough about the guy (he's just a state legislator in a not very important state. RIP Hot Rod, who would have supported this, btw), but I'm going to assume that he isn't against ALL mandates, but just ones he thinks are stupid.
