U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On July 15th, Governor Michael Parson called on the General Assembly to convene a special session on July 27th to address violent crime. Among his agenda items are:

“6. To enact legislation amending Section 568.045, RSMo in order to criminalize acts where a person knowingly encourages, aids, or causes a child less than seventeen years of age to engage in any weapons offense;

7. To enact legislation amending Section 571.060, RSMo to increase the penalty from a class A misdemeanor to a class E  felony for persons who knowingly sell or deliver a firearm to a child less than eighteen years of age without the consent of the child’s parent or guardian;”

NRA applauds Gov. Parson for knowing that we must address violent crime by enforcing existing laws and holding criminals accountable for their actions rather than infringing on the rights of law-abiding citizens.​

The two items listed for the legislature to take up in the special session are a direct result of gang shootings mainly in St. Louis and Kansas City where there has been a large increase in deaths to young people.

How about getting rid of prosecutors who want to crucify armed homeowners for protecting their property? That’d be a great start.

Enact a Dead or Alive bounty system for any person(s) who commits a crime of violence/criminal damage against persons or property.
