St. Louis Alderwoman Proposes Semi-Auto Rifle Ban

posted on November 17, 2016

Lyda Krewson apparently wasn’t paying close attention to last week’s election results. The Democratic alderwoman is in the running to become St. Louis’ next mayor, but she seems to have missed the loud and very clear message sent by voters that gun control is a losing platform. 

On Tuesday, Krewson filed a bill that would ban “assault weapons” in St. Louis. A companion bill would require that all guns left in unattended vehicles be stored in lock boxes. Her legislation comes as a response to the new permitless carry bill that goes into effect on Jan. 1, 2017. 

“It’s time for us to push back against this,” said Krewson. “The intent of these bills is to, of course, make us a safer city.”  

But that’s not what will happen, argues Mark Campbell. The co-owner of Mid America Arms notes, “It’s not going to stop crime in the city of St. Louis. Your gangbangers and criminals will not be turning guns in.”
