Proposed bill would require Missourians to purchase an AR-15

A proposed bill introduced by Missouri Representative Andrew McDaniel would require all Missouri state residents to own an AR-15 rifle.

Missouri residents could be required to own an AR-15 if a new bill passes. In addition, anyone who becomes a state resident after August 28, 2019 would have no later than a year to purchase an AR-15. Instead, the Missouri lawmaker hopes to "make a point on mandates in general", according to Fox4KC.

1108, titled the "McDaniel Militia Act", would mandate and offer tax credits to every person between the ages of 18 and 34 who is legally allowed to possess a firearm and possesses not just any weapon, but one based on the ArmaLite, Inc.

In contrast to McDaniel's Militia Act, the handgun-focused bill specifies that Missourians purchase "a pistol, revolver, or other firearm created to be held in one hand that is capable of firing.22 caliber ammunition or larger".

'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 Dems said in a written statement to the Washington Post.

According to the Missouri House of Representatives website, a hearing on the bill has not been scheduled and it is not now on a House calendar. "Republicans should regroup during the spring legislative break and come back ready to do real work that moves Missouri forward". 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".

However it turns out both bills may actually be a form of political trolling.

McDaniel says it "points out the absurdity of the opposite side", and their proposals to "add more requirements and barriers for law-abiding citizens".
