Kansas City Looking Forward: Mayor Sly Goes Anti-Gun In Jeff City With STL Mayor Slay



From the Mayor's website . . . Here's his anti-gun warning, notice of an empty gesture AND the hoping that nobody will notice that this "nullification protest" is also a non-issue to anybody with even a modicum of understanding about the way laws works.

Here's the notice . . .

Mayor Sly James and Mayor Francis Slay to meet at the Missouri State Capitol to oppose senseless gun legislation

Monday, the mayors of Missouri’s two largest cities will join together in a strong show of unity against House Bill 1439, a bill that would undermine the safety of urban neighborhoods.

“It’s time to realize that reducing crime in cities takes the help of everyone at the federal, state, and local level. This bill would destroy those partnerships and does nothing to make our neighborhoods safe,” said Kansas City Mayor Sly James. “Mayor Slay and I cannot afford to engage in political ideological games. We have to deliver services to our residents and figure out a way to end the bloodshed in our cities. I hope that enough leaders step up in the Legislature and make an effort to understand the damage this superfluous legislation does in urban areas like our cities. Maybe then, we could focus on things that would actually do some good – like expanding Medicaid and early childhood education opportunities for all children.”

“Reducing crime, especially violent crime, is vitally important to the health and future of our City. But, we cannot do it alone. Last summer, the City partnered with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and the U.S. Attorney to take 159 dangerous criminals and 267 guns off the streets of our City,” said City of St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay. “If this bill had been in effect, ATF and the U.S. Attorney would have been committing a crime. That is ludicrous. A vote in favor of House Bill 1439 is a vote to criminalize the efforts of law enforcement. It’s absurd and embarrassing. I stand with the police; not criminals, drug dealers, felons and other miscreants.”

WHO: Kansas City Mayor Sly James and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay
WHAT: Joint press conference to oppose House Bill 1439
WHEN: Monday, April 28th, 2014 at 2:30 pm
WHERE: Capitol Rotunda, Jefferson City, Missouri

When a mayor who has been as unengaged in the issue of urban violence as Sly James can go to the legislature to lecture them on that issue, you know we've passed the gold award for hypocrisy and public relations fluff.
This is the same person who recently said that being shot at was all just a part of the big town urban experience and was quoted not long ago that unless he was made a strong mayor and given local control of the police, his hands were tied.
Sadly, he'll likely find that the folks in Jeff City aren't like his sycophants and 20-something hipster enthusiasts back home.
Another empty gesture.

What they don't get is that these gun laws only effect law abiding citizens. Curious what % of guns used in murders in the 64127, 64126 are purchased legally?

I bet the nigger kid that had a gun on the plaza last night didn't get it legally. Political douches

Never trust the lying scumbag politicians who "want to keep you safe" from the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

I bet he didn't get legally either. I bet he got it through a supply chain that still enriched the Gun Manufacturers who flood our streets with guns. The gun lobby gets rich regardless and the same government that will outsource low wage jobs, flood the inner cities with drugs will turn around and act brand new when people turn to crime and criminality. And don't give me that victim shit either these niggers could be Harvard trained constitutional lawyers and the vast majority of you white people would still think they are "unqualified" for a fucking job. So fuck it hide your wallet you get the ballot or the bullet kc you decide?

Perfect, take the law abiding citizens guns away, allow the hood rats to keep their illegal guns so they can kill the now defenseless citizens. Brilliant.

Sly, then have a presser and tell us that's how it is in every other U.S. city. It's just the way it is if you live in a major metro area. Wait, you already played that card.

That is the talk of the apologist negro. Attempting to make excuses for the continuing, growing failures, that lay directly at the feet of politicians, like Sly, that hide their heads in the pile of shit they are helping to heap.

Go ahead Sly, take the guns away and watch the hood rats swarm the plaza, Westwood, Mission Hills and Leawood. Hell Olathe and OP are now part of the hood.

After the bow tie wearing GRIFTER leaves office, he can look down from his hi-rise condo and watch the hood-rats swarming the Plaza that will be deserted. Looting, robbing, raping, and jacking. Oh well he told us. That's life in metro America today. Thank's so very much "African Americans".

Tony, your writing is halfway decent, and I applaud you for not censoring your comment posts. With that said, you attract some losers here. Racists need to be euthanized.

10:52 you are just as bad as those you rail against. You support black crime with your post. You will one day regret your own stupid beliefs. Probably after a black kills you. Fucking moron.

Our mayor thinks this all is just normal urban issues. ITS NOT NORMAL. Our per capital crime rate is terrible. DO SOMETHING. When will we ever get a mayor that cracks down on crime instead of pandering to corporate interests? FIX THIS PROBLEM ALREADY!


This is such an embarrassment.

...and how many victims don't have guns ready to rock? Oh about 99.99 percent. So if you don't get trained and own a gun for protection you won't have to worry about who is going to protect you when the next criminal comes along 'cause no one will.

As far as the State and their political bullshit...the state laws are ten times more fucked up than the federal gun laws so why not clean up the home front first?

@1038, I have never heard anyone from either side of the political spectrum have so many simple solutions to complex, intractable problems.

With this degree of genius, you really need to have the balls to run on a platform of the one you espouse here. I mean deep down, don't most people agree with you?

Bring it, show balls. Strap on a pair. Look people in the eyes when you assert your point of view, then you will get respect from those who might not even agree with you.

Or follow Tony's lead on how he is debating the light rail project.

Real dynamite level of effectiveness we can all model.

James is not the mayor for all of Kansas City but for Burns & McDonnell. J.E. Dunn Construction and the Kemper Banks. He is the front man, the House Nigger.

Well, he IS a nigger. I'll buy that!

1:45 Im ready. Is that all you do on Sunday? Sad!

3:09 the bear is probably smarter that we are. He sold out and moved out of KC. I would doubt few, if any, sane person would run for office in KC.

You need to be a ego driven dumbass, a crook, or black to run for office in KC. I don't see the bear as any of those.
