Honest Abe Lincoln once was famously quoted as saying, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
in the past couple of days, we’ve seen a pair of stories about low-information legislators that boggle the mind.
Let’s start with our neighbors in Missouri.
Democrat State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal from Jefferson City, Missouri introduced a new bill, Senate Bill 549, that would require parents to register their guns with their schools when they enroll their children. Parents would face a $100 fine for failing to register each gun and would be required to notify the school of additional gun purchases. The bill would also require these same families to lock up their safety, charging parents with a misdemeanor for failing to do so and a felony if the unsecured firearm is later misused to kill someone. The simple senator said she was trying to stop school violence and crimes like carjacking.
The low-information voters who elected this woman must be some real rocket scientists, without a doubt.
Amazingly, Chappelle-Nadal touted her support of the Second Amendment to local media outlets. Then again, Barack Obama says the same thing.
Not to be outdone, Mississippi’s Democrat low-information Representative Omeria Scott (District 80) introduced her plan to tackle criminal violence: House Bill 231. Her proposal would establish a public registry of every ammunition purchaser in that state to include their name, address, driver’s license or social security number and shall be readily accessible to the public.
