Bill SB 124............Give Me A Break!!!!!


A Proposal by Senator Maria Chappelle Nadel, for Missouri Gun Owners

SB 124 – This act creates the offense of failing to stop illegal firearm possession. A person commits the offense if he or she is the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18, he or she knows the child possesses a firearm in violation of the law, and he or she fails to stop the possession or report it to law enforcement.

The offense is a Class A misdemeanor unless death or injury results from the firearm possession in which case it is a Class D felony.

This act also creates the offense of negligent storage of a firearm. A parent or guardian of a child under the age of 18 commits the offense by recklessly storing or leaving a firearm in a manner that is likely to result in the child accessing the firearm if the child obtains access to the firearm and unlawfully carries it to school, kills or injures another person with it, or commits a crime with it.

A firearm that is in a secure location or locked is not considered to be recklessly stored or left in a manner likely to result in the child accessing the firearm.

The offense is a Class A misdemeanor unless the child kills or injures another person in which case it is a Class D felony.

The parent or guardian of a child injured or killed by a firearm may only be prosecuted for negligent storage of a firearm if he or she was grossly negligent.

This act requires a parent or guardian to notify a school district, or the governing body of a private or charter school, that he or she owns a firearm within 30 days of enrolling the child in school or becoming the owner of a firearm.

The written notification only needs to include the names of the parent and any child attending the school and the fact that the parent owns a firearm.

A person only needs to send one written notification if he or she has multiple children attending the school or becomes the owner of additional firearms. Any time a new child is enrolled in a school the parent or guardian must send an updated notification with the new child’s name.

Failure to notify the school under this act is an infraction, punishable by a fine of up to $100. If a person is found guilty of negligent storage of a firearm and has failed to notify the school of firearm ownership, the person must be fined $1,000 in addition to any other penalties authorized by law.

  1. Keeping one's firearms locked seems reasonable to prevent children from obtaining them. The section regarding notification of the appropriate school is bizarre. Schools should not be in the position of monitoring which parent(s) have weapons in their home.

    2. Oregon is introducing a bill that the only way to obtain cigarettes is by prescription. Huh? Whether you smoke or don't where does this end? Will one need a prescription to buy soda, chips or pizza? Many control and intrusion issues involved.

  2. My thought is that I'll be paying a $100 fine IF they find out.

    1. K,

      Everyone will be paying this fine if this law is approved throughout the U.S. Right now it's a proposal in Missouri.

      No one needs to tell big brother what they do or don't have. I'm wearing my boots because the $hit is getting deep.

  6. Hitler comes to mind. Turn in any known jews or people hiding known jews or we will punish you.

    I'm all for keeping guns out of the hands of kids, but all these written announcements sounds more like we're living in an internment camp.

  10. You'ns might live in the same country, but it is an entirely different world. When I took the firearms safety course to get my Pennsylvania hunting license when I was around 30, virtually all the other students were less than half my age. Every one seems to agree, oh yes, keeps the guns out of the hands of kids. Maybe it's different now, but around here people learned how to safely handle a gun before they learned how to drive, and to me that just makes more sense. Do it while they still respect authority and before the hormones of puberty kick in. But maybe that only works in a culture where hunting still is valued.
