Missouri lawmakers are pre-filing gun control legislation for 2019 legislative session

SPRINGFIELD, Mo Missouri gun owners are concerned about a pre-filed bill… that allows police to take away guns.. based solely on accusations by a family member.

For example if someone at your household or a family member like your mom, dad, sister, brother, or spouse thought that you were in a bad place and shouldn’t be in possession of a gun… they could call the police and law enforcement would come take your guns away from you.

Then you would have 14 days to go before a judge and explain that you are fine and not a harm to anyone, to try and get your guns back.

Democrat state Senator Jill Schupp, from Creve Coeur, pre-filed the legislation.

Schupp and other democratic lawmakers believe this is a step to preventing suicide and domestic violence.

“This bill is to be able to raise our hand and say that I think my brother, my sister might be a harm to themselves or others. And we would like for a short time period to be able to remove their guns.” said Democrat state representative Deb Lavender, District 90 in Kirkwood.
