Missouri State Lawmaker Proposes Law Requiring Parents to Notify Child's School About Their Guns
The gun control debate has prompted all sorts of new proposals since last month's Sandy Hook school shootings. A Missouri state lawmaker is now raising some eyebrows by proposing a law that requires parents to notify their children's school about what guns they own.
Under State Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal's (D) bill, parents would face a fine of up to $100 if they don't comply. The law would also punish parents for failing to properly secure a firearm or allowing a child to illegally possess one.
Chapelle-Nadal says the proposal does not violate the Second Amendment, arguing, "I don’t think the Second Amendment says that it's okay for a 12-year-old to kill another 12-year-old because grandpa left his gun out."
On Fox and Friends, Brian Kilmeade went over the bill with Missouri State Sen. Brian Nieves (R), who argued this is another proposal that will do nothing to stop criminals or shootings, "and only law-abiding citizens" would be affected.

"One of the things that the Constitution certainly provides for is our privacy and I certainly don't think the Constitution says anything about teachers and school administrators becoming government investigators," said Nieves, who added that he does not believe this bill has any chance at becoming law.
Nieves agreed that, just like in New York with the publishing of gun owners' names by a local newspaper, this law would create a list of gun owners that could put law-abiding citizens at risk.
