In a move that affirms what is often said in the comments section and proves that states like California and Connecticut are the canaries in the gun control coal mine, a pair of lawmakers in Kansas and Missouri plan to propose laws similar to California’s Gun Violence Restraining Order law. That allows police to confiscate the weapons of someone deemed “dangerous” by their family or others without due process. They appear to have looked to the Golden State as a template. Note that one of the legislators has a D following of her name the other an R after hers, thus proving that . . .
the letter after a legislator’s party isn’t an indication of their stance on the Second Amendment.
The only saving grace at this point is that both legislatures have passed laws upholding the Second Amendment in the past, so I suspect these bills won’t gain much traction. Still, stay tuned.
