I sometimes don’t know why I bother because people like Will Kraus and Brian Nieves are going to do whatever they want anyways. It did not matter to the members that voted to pass this out of committee that only 1 person testified in favor of the law and 60 plus people against, with at least 15 testifying live and at least 40 more who did not get to testify live because of time but submitted written testimony.
People like Will Kraus do not represent the people; they represent themselves. They do not care that this is going to created a giant unfunded mandate on both the schools and the police that will cost untold number of dollars. They also don’t care that if it passes Missouri is guaranteed to be sued, just like all of the other states who have passed similar law. Missouri will have to spend millions of dollars defending a suit that is already being fought elsewhere.
