TKC EXCLUSIVE NEWS SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY JAMES, JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR JEAN PETERS BAKER ALONG WITH SELECT LAW ENFORCEMENT AUTHORITIES PREPARE CONTROVERSIAL CLOSED MEETING DEMANDING MISSOURI LEGISLATORS SUSTAIN GUN RIGHTS BILL 656 VETO AMID 2ND AMENDMENT CRACKDOWN!!!
The subject of gun rights is soon to take center stage this week in Kansas City as local leaders prepare a closed meeting to tout stricter gun laws in Missouri despite concerns about municipal government transparency.
To wit . . .
AN UPCOMING CLOSED PRESS CONFERENCE RAISES PUBLIC MEETING CONCERNS WHILE KANSAS CITY LEADERS TOUT A MISSOURI GUN RIGHTS BILL VETO BUT REFUSE ANY TOUGH QUESTIONS OR DEBATE CHALLENGING THEIR PUBLIC PROCLAMATIONS!!!
The presser is Tuesday, Sept. 13th at the Rose Brooks Center - A domestic violence shelter. Reporters and media who want to cover this event are required to sign in only by special invitation. We've asked around about this one and the newsies sent to the event have been specially requested/screened with a preemptive warning about the nature of their questions under the constant threat of limits to future access.
Kansas City insiders have this to say . . .
"We're not even sure if this is legal. Especially if other members of Council show up and there's a quorum present but the public still isn't allowed to participate. The bottom line: It's definitely not transparent. The Mayor has always been against guns but this press conference planned to influence the Missouri veto session shows that he & the Prosecutor are more concerned about politics and sustaining an unpopular veto than doing anything substantial about the current crime wave in our community."
Governor Jay Nixon's veto of the Missouri gun rights bill has been a constant rallying cry for Kansas City area Democratic Party leaders who have been remarkably silent on the uptick in gun violence closer to home but more than willing to shift blame for all the recent gun related crime on the Missouri GOP who mostly reside in far more peaceful suburban and rural areas.
Kansas City elected leaders hoping to incriminate faraway politicos for the violence on our streets in a partisan ploy is not only a negligent, desperate, ill-considered rhetorical tactic but also a despicable and deceitful ruse perpetrated against voters so that local public officials can avoid any responsibility or accountability for the ongoing slaughter. Look closely at this contrivance because it's nothing less than KCMO leaders passing the buck as bullets fly and continue to frighten, injure and kill innocent people.
Meanwhile KICK-ASS TKC TIPSTERS are correct when they remind us that statements to the press about the current Kansas City record-breaking homicide trend by these same politicos have been few and far between in the midst of this carefully planned, questionable and private press conference now EXPOSED by our blog community.
