Race to the Bottom

I thought Kansas wanted to the the Florida of the Midwest (as opposed to Florida which just hopes to avoid become the Tennessee of America) but Missouri is so competitive.

Missouri state representative Mike Leara wants to make sure that Missouri is yet another gun-infested state where everyone can live in fear that the next crazy person they see at the movie theater, or the local nursery school, is about to let go with a  spray of automatic weapons fire.

You see, Rep. Leara, a Republican, has offered legislation that “specifies that any member of the general assembly who proposes legislation that further restricts an individual’s right to bear arms will be guilty of a class D felony.”
The gun-nuts literally dream of a world where the other Bill of Rights and half the 2nd Amendment are scratched out and all that is left is the dangling last half.

There are at least four or five reasons why such a law would get thrown out on the first challenge, but, it'll pass, anyway.

Because Missouri is one of several states where the inmates are running the asylum, and a majority of the people of Missouri like it that way.

Personally I don't much care what kind or how many guns any particular gun nut owns -- in no small part because I'm in a gun nut state and can't do much about it anyway -- but good god, it must be creepy having to deal with people who seem perpetually obsessed with weapons and weaponry. Do they ever read a book or watch a movie -- or maybe I should say read a book or watch a movie that's NOT about guns?
