St. Louis Takes Aim At MO’s Relaxed Gun Laws

(Missourinet) Missouri’s two largest and most violent cities are working to find loopholes in the state’s relaxed gun laws.

St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones says the city plans to file gun legislation soon to address the city’s gun violence problems.

The bill would ban “military-grade” assault weapons, prevent the sale or transfer of guns to minors, and address ghost guns, which are untraceable and do not have a serial number.

Kansas City is working to file similar legislation. Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey says his office will study whether the cities are following state law.
