Kansas, Missouri reps to discuss bi-state gun legislation

Associated Press - January 31, 2015 2:35 pm

State lawmakers from Missouri and Kansas are pitching similar legislation to restrict firearms for persons with domestic violence or stalking restraining orders or convictions.

Republican Kansas Rep. Barbara Bollier of Mission Hills and Democratic Missouri Rep. Stacey Newman recently introduced the bills in Topeka and Jefferson City, but Missouri lawmakers say there’s little chance of either gaining traction.

The Kansas City Star reports Bollier and Newman discussed their bills at a news conference on Friday outside Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker’s office in Kansas City.

Rep. Rick Brattin, a Harrisonville Republican, called the legislation a “publicity stunt” with no chance of passage.

Rep. Joe Don McGaugh, a Carrollton Republican, said Newman’s bill is unconstitutional because it doesn’t include enough protections for gun owners.

Why are they even wasting their time even talking about gun laws like this. Do you really think that if a person with a restraining order or a conviction wants to commit a crime with a gun, that they will consider the law. HELL NO….they will buy a flippin gun. PERIOD. From the internet, from a friend or from the thug on the street corner. Thats what these idiot gun haters cant get through their idiotic heads. Gun laws ARENT GOING TO STOP CRIMINALS FROM GETTING GUNS. Only law abiding citizens wanting to protect themselves.
