KANSAS CITY, Mo. — On the heels of the Sandy Hook tragedy, a Missouri state senator is pushing for the next step in gun control in schools.
Senator Maria Chapelle-Nadal proposed a bill making it mandatory for parents to notify their child’s school if they own a gun. She also wants to make failing to prevent guns from getting into the wrong hands an illegal offense.
Chapelle-Nadal believes this law would encourage parents to make sure they store their guns safely in their home.
A news conference is scheduled for noon in Jefferson City where the senator will release more details on the proposed legislation.
