MISSOURI (21Alive) -- The Missouri is considering a bill that would require parents of a public school student to report to the school if they own a gun.
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 weapon within 30 days of enrolling the child in school or becoming the owner of a weapon. 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 weapon.
According to the bill, a parent or guardian must notify the school district within 30 days of enrolling the child in school or becoming the owner of a gun. Failure to notify the school is punishable by a find of up to $100.
This is the second time the bill has been under consideration. Last year the bill went no where.
