Let’s make a law that will immediately will be ignored.
Now, a proposed law would make it a misdemeanor for gun owners to improperly store firearms or ammunition in a car or boat. The law would not apply if the gun was kept from “ordinary observation” and locked in a trunk, glove box or locked container attached to the car or boat.
The bill introduced by Rep. Caleb Hemmer (D-Davidson County) would require people to report the loss or theft of a firearm to police within 24 hours of finding it missing.
A violation would result in a Class C misdemeanor. However, the punishment would not be a fine or jail time. Instead, the law would require offenders to complete a court-approved firearm safety course.
You guys know I have no love for leaving guns unsecured in cars, especially with all the available options in the market for a vehicular car safe. But Making a law that penalizes the owner three times is imbecilic, but par for Gun Control morons. And correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn’t this law violate the 5th Amendment? Forcing a citizen to incriminate himself is pretty much a Constitutional No-No.
But Gun Control activists do seem to have an overall dislike for the Bill of Rights.
