MAYOR SLY TEAMS WITH STL TO STAND AGAINST THE MISSOURI 2ND AMENDMENT PRESERVATION ACT!!!
Here's the gist of his screed:
Dead Tree Media "As I See It" By MAYOR SLY JAMES AND MAYOR FRANCIS SLAY
"We are the mayors of Missouri’s two largest cities — Kansas City and St. Louis. We represent more than one out of every eight Missourians. Our communities are the centers of metropolitan regions that constitute Missouri’s two greatest economic powerhouses . . .
House Bill 1439 represents a reckless attempt by narrow ideological interests to coerce us and other law abiding local officials into violating our oaths of office. The bill, if enacted, would do little to preserve legitimate gun ownership rights.
It would do much to undermine the freedom of the people we represent and to threaten the stability of the communities we serve. We will not be coerced.
House Bill 1439 seeks to intimidate local officials into disregarding settled interpretation of the U.S. Constitution and into violating federal acts, laws, executive orders, administrative orders, court orders, rules, regulations, statutes or ordinances. We will not be intimidated."
Meanwhile, more reasonable gun rights enthusiasts realize that the legislation is just a bit of political theater and calls out more liberal politicos on their anti-gun bias.
