MO State GOP Rep Intro's Bill Making It A Felony To Propose Gun Legislation

Missouri state GOP Rep. Mike Leara has introduced a bill that will make it a felony for a lawmaker to introduce legislation that regulates gun ownership.
House Bill 633 is short: “Any member of the general assembly who proposes a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, shall be guilty of a class D felony.” Leara is honest about the proposed bill’s chances: He doesn’t believe it will pass. “I filed HB 633 as a matter of principle and as a statement in defense of the Second Amendment rights of all Missourians,” he said in a statement released Tuesday. “I have no illusions about the bill making it through the legislative process, but I want it to be clear that the Missouri House will stand in defense of the people’s Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.”
Are there any sane Republicans left?
