Legislature Considers Making Missouri's Terrible Gun Laws Even Worse

Are Missouri’s already dangerous gun laws about to get more dangerous? Imagine a scenario where any adult who wanted to carry a concealed weapon could do so, no training and no permit required.

Now add to that a “stand your ground” law that says anyone who feels threatened, no matter where he is, can shoot to kill. No longer would he have a legal duty to try to avoid confrontation, much less try to determine if a threat was real. He could shoot first and ask questions later.

A recent letter asserted that liberals hate the Second Amendment (“Joetopia’s liberal drivel on guns,” Feb. 5). Liberals don’t hate the Second Amendment. We hate how it has been perverted by the diseased minds at the National Rifle Association and its legion of stooges.

We hate the orgy of firearms forced on our nation by the obsessed fetishists of the gun culture. We hate unending gun violence and senseless murders, particularly of children.

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
There is no way to rule innocent men. The only power government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. — Ayn Rand in her must-read novel, Atlas Shrugged
