The legislator doesn’t think his own bill has much of a chance to pass. The bill should be made law. What is so wrong about imprisoning people that try to subvert the Constitution?
In a twist on the typical anti-gun legislation floating around in statehouses and the nation’s capital these days, a lawmaker from Missouri is taking a different tact. Rather than criminalizing gun owners, he is seeking to criminalize fellow legislators who attempt to criminalize the state’s gun owners.
Rep. Mike Leara, a Republican from suburban St. Louis, says he doesn’t think his bill stands much of a chance of passing, but he’s proposing it anyway to send a message if nothing else.
If the bill gets more traction than expected then that would be very gratifying for all freedom loving Americans. Support Mike Leara for reelection.
