Proposed Missouri Law Would Force Every Adult Resident to Buy an AR-15


While Missouri politicians have long tried to outdo each other over pro-
gun legislation, the latest bill may be impossible to top — a law
mandating that every Missouri resident aged 18 to 35 purchase an AR-15-
style rifle.

No, this is not the Onion. And yes, that's the very weapon targeted by gun
reform activists and in an ongoing lawsuit filed by families of victims
killed in the Sandy Hook massacre.

Introduced last month by state Representative Andrew McDaniel (R-Deering),
the bill, titled the "McDaniel Militia Act," would create a state tax
credit (capped at $1 million annually) to function as an incentive for
residents not yet strapped with Big Government's preferred Big Gun — the
AR-15. Purchasers could then claim the tax credit on up to 75 percent of
the gun's cost.

The bill's text states, "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... Every resident of this state shall own at least one AR-15"
[emphasis added].

And that's not even McDaniel's only bill aiming to arm the masses: Two
days before introducing his Militia Act, the Bootheel-area representative
introduced the "McDaniel Second Amendment Act," which "requires every
person 21 years of age or older who can legally possess a firearm to own a
handgun."

In contrast to McDaniel's Militia Act, the handgun-focused bill specifies
that Missourians purchase "a pistol, revolver, or other firearm designed
to be held in one hand that is capable of firing .22 caliber ammunition or
larger." (Purchasers could again receive a tax credit for complying with
the law.)

Still, it's not clear what would happen to residents refusing to get
strapped, as neither bill addresses penalties for those who do not
dutifully go gun shopping.

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. And
because of that, it's hard to quantify how just how many gun purchases
would result from the bill's passage: According to state census data,
Missouri holds about 1.5 million residents between the ages of 18 and 35,
and about 4.5 million above the age of 21. Yet there's no precise way to
know how many would be legally barred from participating, much less how
many Missourians already have an AR-15.

Still, experts estimate that the national average for gun ownership is
twenty to thirty percent. Even presuming that only twenty percent of
Missourians already own handguns, that would still put some 3.6 million
residents under the law's mandate. Using the same very rough math,
McDaniel's bill would encourage more than a million new AR-15-style rifle
purchases. We're guessing that $1 million tax credit would be exhausted
quickly.

But don't go bounding off to the hunting supply store yet: At this point,
neither of McDaniel's bills have been assigned a committee, much less
scheduled for a vote. (McDaniels' office did not respond requests for
comment on Thursday.) Still, we're guessing there are plenty of Missourah
Republicans kicking themselves in the holster for not thinking of this
first.
