"I am not trying to take away the gun rights of any parents or any other citizens I believe in the second amendment," says State Senator Maria
"I agree with it, we need to know because a lot of parents aren't governing their homes properly," says parent Danaelle Stidum.
I don't own a gun and my children are well beyond school age, but these two statements make me uneasy.
First off, who is going to determine if people are "governing their homes properly"? The school? The police? A court?
If there is a law being proposed, there must be a penalty, otherwise a law would be unenforceable. What would be the penalty for failing to notify the
school that you own a gun? Who is going to enforce that penalty? Neither the school nor the police have that authority. It would have to be a judge.
I suspect that the penalty would be a hefty fine.
The Senator says she is not trying to take away gun rights, but it sounds to me like an attempt to fine gun owners.
