THE TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! PERSPECTIVE: ONLY CONCEALED CARRY GUN RIGHTS CAN SAVE KANSAS CITY PROPER!!!
Since Friday Kansas City has recorded at least three homicides and it seems that so much hype from politicos about the temporary reduction in the local murder count is nothing more than a numbers game.
Meanwhile, denizens of our blog community advocate 2nd amendment protection as a potential solution to persistent problems with local violence.
OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS THE CONSENSUS AMONG THE TKC BLOG COMMUNITY IS THAT A CHEAP AND LEGAL WAY TO REDUCE KANSAS CITY VIOLENCE IS TO ENSURE AND PROMOTE CONCEALED CARRY GUN RIGHTS!!!
This isn't just rhetoric, there are NUMBERS AND EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THE CLAIM THAT MORE LEGAL GUNS NOT LESS WILL REDUCE VIOLENCE on local streets.
Take a look:
Here’s What Happened to Crime in Chicago After Illinois Finally Passed Concealed Carry Law
"On July 9, 2013, a bill to recognize Illinois gun owners’ right to carry concealed firearms was passed by both chambers of the state Legislature. Illinois became the last state in the nation to allow public possession of concealed guns.
"Gun control advocates warned that high-crime areas, like Chicago, would only see more violence if residents were allowed to carry guns in public.
"In reality, the opposite may be happening.
"On Tuesday, the Chicago Police Department announced that the city experienced its lowest murder rate since 1958 in the first quarter of 2014. There were 6 fewer murders than the same timeframe in 2013 — a 9 percent drop — and 55 fewer murders than 2012, police said."
Now . . .
MORE THAN A FEW TKC READERS ARE SENDING A MESSAGE AND CALLING ON MAYOR SLY JAMES TO REVERSE HIS GUN RIGHTS CRACKDOWN IN FAVOR OF PROMOTING LAWFUL CONCEALED CARRY TO FIGHT KANSAS CITY CRIME!!!
Here's just a few of the blog reader messages we're getting . . .
"TKC, look at what is happening in Chicago. Concealed Carry FREEDOM is attempting to turn the tide. Tell your Mayor that he's JUST PLAIN WRONG to advocate taking away guns as the solution to all the killings. Instead, he should focus on protecting the rights of lawful gun owners and encouraging CCW. The road he's going down with limiting the 2nd Amendment has already been tried and it has failed. He seems to be listening to his ultra-liberal friends who are out of touch with reality. It's not too late for him to change his course."
One reader thinks he sees the negative influence of Dead Tree Media in this civic debate . . .
"More liberty not less is the only answer to solve crime in KC. Why isn't this not even on Sly's radar? It's like he doesn't know that Yael's idiotic ideas aren't going to help anything in KC. Haven't for the past 20 years."
Last word from a VERY LOYAL TKC BLOG DENIZEN on a slogan . . .
"CCW 4 KC that's solution to all your crime problems Tony. All the rest is just politicians trying to win brownie points."
And so . . .
WILL CCW SAVE KANSAS CITY FROM FURTHER VIOLENCE AND WHY ISN'T THE MAYOR ADVOCATING THIS PROVEN STRATEGY INSTEAD OF WORKING TO CRACKDOWN ON GUN RIGHTS?!?!?
As warm weather violence rapidly increases and gun crackdown solutions put forward make this town seem helpless to stop violence, readers of this blog promote a CCW which they believe Kansas City needs to consider.
