A Missouri gun law could prevent you from buying a gun and firing it, the latest law to go into effect after the state Legislature approved a bill on Tuesday.
The bill requires people to turn in their firearms when they are arrested, and requires people in Missouri to register their guns.
It also creates an open records exemption, which allows Missouri law enforcement to obtain information about the owners and owners’ children and the gun’s serial number.
The law, known as the Lemon Law, is the latest in a series of Missouri gun bills.
Under the bill, if you fail to register a gun in time, you could be in violation of the law.
The new law takes effect in December.
The Missouri Department of Justice has been investigating cases of people violating the law by not turning in their guns and firing them in court.
The department said in a statement Tuesday that “the new law will help protect the public from unlawful gun ownership.”
This is the second time the department has issued a public warning about gun violations in the state.
In February, the department issued a second public warning, and a third in June.
The previous law took effect in July.
The Department of Public Safety said it would work with local law enforcement agencies and police departments to address the problem of “law abiding citizens not following the law and disregarding federal laws and regulations.”
The state has not had a mass shooting since 2009.
The state legislature approved the bill in a largely party-line vote in May.
That year, the state’s gun violence prevention bill passed by a wide margin, with all but a handful of Republicans in the House and Senate voting in favor.
Jay Nixon has said the law will allow the state to be a more “gun friendly” place.
