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 . . .
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
