SHOCK!!! MAYOR SLY AND COUNCIL APPROVE ILLEGAL CRACKDOWN ON KANSAS CITY OPEN CARRY AND OUR LOCAL 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS!!!
With a shameful and despicable ignorance of good law in Missouri and the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution, Mayor Sly and City Council voted to ban the open carry of legal guns in Kansas City.
Remember that TKC was the first to break this story and raise the interest of gun rights activists on this one.
Then we offered more detail on the arguments against this tragic legislation and the upcoming move to block the effort . . . Which is just going to cost the city more cash to defend.
Today, just like we told you . . . The effort was approved by the Mayor and Council . . .
Kansas City council bans open carry of firearms
"Mayor Sly James said open carry may be okay for rural areas, but not for Kansas City.
"In this city where violence is a problem, where woman are battered and beaten where people get drunk and in hassles at bars, I don't think that we ought to hand them a gun to take it to the next level and say that's okay," he said."
For the record, the example Mayor Sly provides doesn't have any real world relevance and is completely incorrect.
Again, this is Mayor Sly and the City Council showing absolutely no respect for the rights of the citizenry OR the Constitution.
This act is nothing less than criminal and will be struck down by Missouri activists. What's worse is that the Mayor knows this legislation is contrary to the law but doesn't seem to care.
UPDATE . . . THE KCPD CHIEF WEIGHS IN: Open carry ordinance is wise
