Thanks, Nutt.

If one state does it, more will follow!

Thankfully some states already are out of that "Let's be like California!" mode that seemed to be prevalent for a while.

I have found many references to this story, it may be true.

A quick search of the Web indicates it was a bill introduced by Maslack in the year 2000. No action was taken to enact it into law. It has been kicking around the discussion boards since that time.

My issue with it is that it is an intrusion into the privacy of citizens. It is not the business of government what people may think about guns and whether they own one. Maslack's proposal is needling the anti-gun side with some of their own crap. It's cute, but it is not good public policy.

I agree that such a law IS an intrusion, the antis seem to have no problem intruding into and regulating our lives, maybe it's time we gave them a taste.

I don't think they would get the irony.
