A Missouri Republican is proposing legislation that would mandate every militia-age citizen to own an AR-15. The Daily Caller reports:
Republican Missouri State Rep. Andrew McDaniel proposed legislation that would require every citizen of the state to own an AR-15.
House Bill No. 1108, titled the “McDaniel Militia Act,” would mandate and offer tax credits to every person between the ages of 18 and 34 who is legally allowed to possess a firearm and possesses not just any weapon, but one based on the ArmaLite, Inc. AR-15 design.
Citizens are given one year to obtain an AR-15 under the bill, and they are only allowed to sell an AR-15 if they own another one.
“Every resident of this state shall own at least one AR-15. 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,” the bill reads. “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.”
There is an argument to be made that citizens are supposed to defend their nation and should be required to have the tools to, but this should show the Left how absurd their laws are in comparison.
