    It's idiotic but if Missouri wants to try to pass such a law, then they're required to SUBSIDIZE the cost, AND they're not allowed to decide WHAT SPECIFIC KIND of firearm either.

    In other words, if the law is passed, anyone whose income is below a certain level, say perhaps less than $150 thousand a year, reports to the State Armory and is ISSUED a firearm from a bunch of available choices, on the state's dime.

    No tax credit nonsense either, the armory just issues the gun, period, because in keeping with the spirit of the 2A, persons should not have to submit tax information or otherwise involve the IRS in any way whatsoever....just present your legal ID and blammo, here's your gun, here's your boxes of ammo, and you get a paper with instructions on how the state wishes for you to maintain it.

    I don't think it has, but I don't know for sure. It's been on the books for close to 30 years now.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think that's the point of the bill. To point out the absurdity and hypocrisy when the shoe is on the other foot.
    Scripture, facts, science, and stats is how I argue.
