Anti-gun Missouri legislator plays 'race card'--badly

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 | Kurt Hofmann |
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal (D-University City) claims that those colleagues of hers who oppose her bizarrely restrictive gun bill (that would be the vast majority of her colleagues) do so only because they do not value "black lives." From the St. Louis Beacon:

"I asked people who were against my bill 'do you not care about a black life? Do you not think that a black child is equal to any other child in this state?' Because apparently there are people in this state and otherwise who don't care about a black life. ... And they have legislation such as this that puts our citizens in our communities at risk more than they already are."

So what is this bill of hers? Actually, we discussed it about a month ago. Chappelle-Nadal's SB 124 would, among other things, require parents to inform their children's schools if they kept any firearms in the house. St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner summed up the legislation's value in combating "gun violence" this way:

See--if this law had been in place in Newtown, Connecticut, the Sandy Hook massacre would . . . have been utterly unaffected, even if it had been obeyed, because the gun owner was not the parent of any student at Sandy Hook. More fundamentally, of course, is the question of even if the school does know which students live in homes with guns, how does that change anything?
