WASHINGTON — For one Missouri state representative, verbally opposing or voting against gun control laws isn’t enough.
Republican State Rep. Eric Burlison posted a video Monday rejecting a bill that would ban some firearms in Missouri — and, for good measure, in the video takes the bill to an indoor shooting range to use it as target practice.
“It’s a great bill,” one patron of the shooting range says in the video as he holds a firearm.
“Really?” Burlison asks.
“It’s great target practice,” the man grins.
Burlison then shoots up the bill himself to test the theory.
It’s not the first extreme opposition to gun control legislation to come out of the Missouri Statehouse this week: Another state representative introduced a bill that would make it a felony to propose any gun control legislation.
