Missourians would be required to purchase an AR-15 under proposed law

House Bill 1108, introduced by Andrew McDaniel, R-Deering, 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".

House Bill 1108, or the McDaniel Militia Act, proposes that every resident of the state of Missouri "shall own at least one AR-15 rifle". The bill defines "residents" as those between the ages of 18-35 "who is not prohibited by law or court order from possessing a firearm".

McDaniel introduced both bills to illustrate his point about progressive mandates on firearms.

On Monday, state lawmakers debated a separate measure that would allow concealed weapons to be carried in public places that now ban guns.

In the manifesto, he identifies himself as a white man, born in Australia, and lists the white nationalists who have inspired him. She also announced compensation would be provided for families of the victims. "It's the time for change", said Ardern.

"From alcohol-fueled bar fights, to advancing legislation that would allow anyone to carry a concealed weapon anywhere from bars to daycares, to mandating gun ownership with a tax subsidy for gun manufacturers, the Missouri GOP rarely wastes an opportunity to embarrass themselves or our state", the Missouri Democratic Party said in a written statement.

The legislation comes amid a session in which a top aide to a Missouri state senator was arrested after a loaded gun fell to the floor during a fight at a Jefferson City bar. Instead, the Missouri lawmaker hopes to "make a point on mandates in general", according to Fox4KC. This would require everyone 21 years old and older, who can legally own a handgun, to get one.

McDaniel, a former sheriff's deputy, simply sees his bills as a way to "get back at them". Should the bill actually move forward, the lawmaker would strip out the other aspects of the bill and focus on the tax credits, Fox4KC reported.

McDaniel, however, is fully aware that this bill has zero chance of passing.
