Celebrate Kansas City Drunk Gun Law Fail!!!



I was watching this one for awhile but the language is so weird in the ordinance that I'm wasn't sure what the hell it was trying to accomplish . . .

Check it: 

Ordinance#140136: Amending Section 50-261, Code of Ordinances, entitled “Unlawful use of weapons – generally” by establishing qualifying factors consistent with those established by the Missouri General Assembly, by requiring an intoxicated person who carries a weapon to also use the weapon in a negligent or unlawful manner or discharge the weapon, other than in self-defense, before the intoxicated person is considered to unlawfully use the weapon . .

Basically . . .

DRUNKS COULD SOON CARRY GUNS IN KANSAS CITY LEGALLY!!!

This ordinance pretty much backs up Missouri law and also puts Mayor Sly's anti-gun efforts last year in perspective.

UPDATE: It was DEFEATED, wich also sends a strange message to Missouri politicos about Kansas City cooperation.

Divided council maintains illegal for drunks to carry guns

KC Council defeats ordinance to let drunk people carry guns

Ordinance to carry gun while drunk fails to pass

If you don't fire your gun and don't act like a jerk with it and keep it concealed then nobody should know you have one.

Intoxicated CCW owners must keep their composure. That's part of the training.

City Laws CANNOT Be More Restrictive Than Those Of The State.

Let Freedom Ring!

Now KCMO can just change all the murders from homicides to being shot by drunks. Instant reduction in the number of homicides.
There, that takes care of the violence problems.
And now on to the streetcar, downtown hotel, GOP Convention, and becoming the innovation capital of the country.

Why shouldn't drunks have guns? Everybody else has them. In Killer City, an unarmed drunk is a dead drunk.

You kill liberals? Can't you get in trouble for that. The bill didn't pass anyway. Calm down sparky.

This sort of crap is always nice for getting the local pols' pictures in the forlorn daily rag. But whatever they do has no teeth so, if they choose to enforce it, they'll end up losing. That said, anyone carrying that ends up drunk and being searched by a cop probably has a fair bit to worry about already.
