Missouri proposes bill that would require residents to own AR-15s


A Missouri lawmaker has introduced a bill that would require some residents to own AR-15 guns.

House Bill 1108 was proposed by Andrew McDaniel (R-Deering), which would establish the McDaniel Militia Act “which requires every person between 18 and 35 years of age who can legally possess a firearm to own an AR-15 and authorizes a tax credit for a purchase of an AR-15.”

The bill would require any person who qualifies as a Missouri resident on August 28, 2019, to purchase an AR-15, and any person who becomes a Missouri resident after August 28, 2019, to purchase one, according to KMBC.

McDaniel also filed a bill that would require persons over 21 years old to own a handgun.

Neither bill is currently scheduled for a hearing.
