Might want to Stear Clear of Missouri for a While

Because it looks like there's apt to be a bunch of 7-year-olds running around with guns.

Even more than usual.

New Missouri Law Would Allow First Graders To Take NRA-Sponsored Gun Class

EDDIE EAGLE GUNSAFE PROGRAM: Each school district and charter school may annually teach the Eddie Eagle Gunsafe Program to first grade students, or use a substantially similar or successor program of the same qualifications. The purpose of the program will be to promote safety and protection of children and emphasize how students should respond if they encounter a firearm. School personnel and program instructors must not make value judgments about firearms. Firearms are prohibited from the teaching of the program. Students with disabilities will participate to the extent appropriate. (Section 171.410)

Hey, Missouri. Let me save you a little time here. Here's the Professor Chaos gun safety class for first graders.


Feel free to use this curriculum at any of your schools. No charge!
You're welcome.

P.S. Here's something I didn't know about Missouri. If you are incarcerated in one of their prisons, they will bill you for your stay there, like a fucking hotel.

(also from the text of SB-75)

Under current law, prisoners in a county jail must pay the costs of their board. This act requires the circuit clerk in each county to report to the Office of State Courts Administrator the names of people certified by the sheriff as being delinquent in the payment of money owed for a period of imprisonment in a county jail. Whenever a person has satisfied his or her debt or begun making regular payments to the sheriff, the sheriff must notify the clerk that the person is no longer considered delinquent. (Section 221.070)

So when you get out of the hoosegow (as they probably still say in Missouri), not only do you have a record hanging over your head, making it difficult for you to re-start a new life on the straight and narrow, you also have this debt hanging over your head so that when you do manage to find someone who will hire an ex-con, it will be even more difficult to make ends meet, which is totally not a recipe for a return to a life of crime!
