    Proposed Mo. bill: Make parents tell school if they own guns

    http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/358395/3/Mo-proposal-makes-parents-tell-schools-about-gun-supply

    ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Ever since the horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, gun control has been a hot topic. Now comes word of a Missouri lawmaker who wants any parent who owns guns to notify their child's school.

    The lawmaker says she hopes the already filed bill will bring awareness to schools and to parents about keeping their guns locked up.

    It's the next idea in a long list of proposed ideas for gun control, making it mandatory for parents to notify their child's school about their gun supply.

    "I am not trying to take away the gun rights of any parents or any other citizens I believe in the second amendment," says State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

    She says she wants the violence in schools to stop and this is just one different idea that no one has brought up.

    "It encourages parents to make sure they store their guns safely in their home, it also gives the school districts the opportunity to help encourage gun safety in the community and in the household," says the Senator.

    "I agree with it, we need to know because a lot of parents aren't governing their homes properly," says parent Danaelle Stidum.

    Some parents say the bill doesn't focus the attention on the parents that need to be focused on.

    "It concerns me a bit because I think the parents that would have no problem registering the guns aren't the ones you have to worry about, I think it's the ones who don't or who are obtained by the students without their parents knowledge that's the concern," says parent Bill Koster.

    The principal of Brentwood High School says the information may help the police more than the school district and what about blaming a parent for guns in their house they don't even know about?

    "Maybe a student obtaining a weapon without the parent even knowing about it," says Principal Don Rugraff.

    "I understand what they are trying to do, but making us notify them if we have guns is not going to deter the behavior what makes people do what they do with guns," says parent Kris Mills.

    This proposal is one of only a handful in Missouri's house and senate. NewsChannel 5's political analyst Dave Robertson told me he's surprised that there aren't more bills being proposed about gun control, but the chances of any bills about the issue being passed is slim to none because of the political atmosphere between the lawmakers and the governor.

    Is the school going to require teachers to inform parents if they use dope, are alcoholics, have any prior convictions, read porn, etc.?

    Should parents be required to tell the school if they own books? Read newspapers? Which books? Which papers?

    Give a moment's thought to what sort of a 'representative' can even conceive of requiring parents to tell a school that they are exercising a constitutional right.

    And give a moment's thought to what sort of people can elect such a person.
