TKC QUESTION TONIGHT: IS OPEN CARRY AND CCW PROTECTING KANSAS CITY AGAINST MORE MASS SHOOTINGS???



A horrific attack on Members of Congress from an alleged and completely disavowed "Bernie Bro" brings the sordid debate regarding the 2nd Amendment into play for middle-class TV news chat show watchers.

Meanwhile on Kansas City streets . . .

With the notable exception of fierce restrictions against felons; if you got a gun, you can carry a gun in Kansas City.

And while this fact hasn't helped to limit the number of homicides that are mostly domestic, gang related and the result of personal disputes . . . THANK GOD that mass shootings against crowds of people aren't commonplace in Kansas City . . . At least until we get into August.

Cowtown reality check: Guns always have been a way of life in Kansas City and most local crowds always host somebody carrying a firearm.

This is one of the many reasons TKC dwells mostly in a dank basement or an out of the way coffee shop that's empty and about to go out of business.

But I digress . . .

DOES THE COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT SO MANY KANSAS CITY DENIZENS ARE PACKING HEAT WORK AS A DETERRENT AGAINST EVEN MORE MASS SHOOTINGS OR ARE GUN CONTROL ACTIVISTS RIGHT IN HOPING TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES???

Admittedly, our blog community trends toward upholding Constitutional Rights with the terrifying realization that laws are only as good as the people who write and enforce them.

A more important reality check . . . Efforts to curb open carry and CCW were recently undertaken by Mayor Sly James and ultimately SMACKED DOWN by the GOP Majority in Jeff City.

Better than anything else, our blog community serves to arm readers with knowledge and better inform locals beyond the phony MSM discourse of talking heads this evening.

TKC truism, like it or not . . . 

KANSAS CITY IS GUN COUNTRY.

You decide . . .

62 murders and counting. And it's only June.

How are those working out for you KCMo?

Truth is the USA is Gun Country. And that will never change, unfortunately.

Correct me if I am wrong, but you can only open carry in KC if you have a CCW license. However, you can carry concealed without a CCW license if you can pass an FBI background check to purchase a gun. However, in the hood no one respects the damn law so the felons carry while Sly pisses and moans about legal gun owners with a clean record.

I know a lot of people who CCW. I also know a lot of people who you won't find hanging around the areas where most of the killing in this town is being done at. In my neighborhood if you get caught in the act of breaking into the house where a CCW lives I would only hope you have said your goodbyes and had all your affairs in order. One only has to look at the areas where the majority of the killing is being done and one can see the common element that so many just love to get on a band wagon and scream about. I knew a lot of poor people as a child growing up. So far not a one of those people that I know of have been in jail a number of times nor are they out killing people while collecting all the welfare they can.

Thugs will always have guns and will always use them seeking to gain power over you. That is why the thugs stay in the areas for the most part where they know someone like me or my neighbors who would have no problem putting them down if they wave a gun at us. For the majority of gun owners it's a tool we use in life for hunting and protection and not a tool to cause fear or to kill someone who won't lets us rob them because we are to lazy to get a real job.

To answer your question Tony it will depend on where the mass shooting takes place. If you're in a gun free zone you might end up very dead. If you are in down town Stanley, you just might have a chance a CCW is there to put an end to it.

Yes, otherwise 62 would be 90 or so. The negros are more out of control than ever and the police are weaker than ever.

I have always carried. I have felt like that wasn't quite good enough so I invested in a Heckler & Koch G36 that is within reach while I am driving. I go to Westport. I go to the hood, just hoping someone will try to carjack me. So far, no luck.

Several people have been saved by concealed carrying people. The lady at the Lowes in Shawnee did not get raped and murdered by at bad asshole with a gun who killed on man trying to help her before this scum was shot dead by a good man with a gun

+1 CCW saves lives.

Greedo said...

Absolutely agree with Super Dave, thugs with guns prey upon people who aren't armed. They avoid a real fight. People who kill the unarmed in surprise attacks are cowards at heart.

^^^ those perceived to be the weakest are the most likely to be attacked, whether it's among animals or humans.

Just judging by the comments today here...

We need a rational discussion from our leaders and elected officials with real opinions. Not the world according to idiot losers on a blog or facebook.

Grow up people, it's time to get serious and save our country!

i still don't know why sLIE James International Airport got open carry banned in the city limits, makes no sense when you can conceal carry without any problems. At least with open carry you know who's packin heat

The black Boyz want an easy mark who's gunna not fight back ¡!

Hey there 10:59 , so true , so necessary , so sad , a reality of life around KILLA CITY these days . . .

That's incorrect. Unless prohibited by a government building or otherwise, one can open carry anywhere. Open carry has been legal in Missouri for many years however not many knew that until the recent concealed weapons law changes.

Anonymous said...

The fact of the matter is this; the changes in concealed carry law have only hurt law enforcement. Now, if they stop a known criminal or gang member with a concealed firearm they cannot arrest the them and must give the gun back unless the person is a convicted felon or arrested on other charges. Gun recoveries and seizures on these violent individuals has dropped nearly 100% and look at what is happening on the streets.

From our leaders and elected officials? Like Sly James? Cleaver? I'll pass.

Funny how the libs didn't bring up the gun control issue when it was revealed that it was one of their own who did the shooting in VA. The left has had issues with their own nut jobs since Booth shot Lincoln and of course the lib media never bothers to mention it either.

You are incorrect . Better read new law Jan. 1, 2017

"DOES THE COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT SO MANY KANSAS CITY DENIZENS ARE PACKING HEAT WORK AS A DETERRENT AGAINST EVEN MORE MASS SHOOTINGS OR ARE GUN CONTROL ACTIVISTS RIGHT IN HOPING TO SAVE US FROM OURSELVES???"

Actually there is NO common knowledge as to who or how many are packing in the metro area. Not even the ATF knows. I don't particularly embellish the idea of using deadly force. but what I hate is the idea that I would resist using it and watch good citizens freedoms shrink because I refused to meet a threat head on. Citizens have an opportunity to disrupt unbridled violent crime with legal authority to do so.

Frankly I don't want to intimidate a violent felon into thinking I may be armed. I don't want him to even know until he is swinging the old pitchfork. As Dirty Harry said, "Are you feeling lucky today, boy?"

Bigger town will. Ever change either. So i am packing.

Gotta say I feel sorry for the folks who live in such constant fear that they need the constant reassuring presence of a gun. I suspect that their mothers took the pacifier away too abruptly. Sadly, you cannot predict who will use deadly violence -- and firearms make it more likely, not less.

If you feel you need to have a gun to go somewhere -- DON"T GO THERE! The best case scenario is that you are risking shooting someone else.

We all see the grieving mothers of murder victims. We see the tearful mothers of sons being carted off to prison for life. Instead of just crying, those mothers need to act. If you have a young person -- especially a young man -- living in your house and he has a gun? Take it and toss it in a lake. He is NOT safer wandering about with a gun in his pocket or his car.

If the mothers of Kansas City filled Troost Lake with their sons' guns, everyone would be a lot safer.

847 obviously knows nothing about this assuming that the FBI are the ones who do the background checks. It's the ATF. And how does it would it make sense to be able to only open carry with a "concealed" gun permit.

Anonymous said...

^^^^ Idioit!!! NICS is staffed, ran and controlled by by the FBI not the ATF. If you knew anything you would know that ATF and the FBI have had differences on interpretation of the law and the FBI has told the AFT to fuck off based on what was opined by the FBI lawyers at Justice. You don't know your ass from apple butter blabberass. Another fucking libtard that has all the answers but is too fucking dumb to figure out what the questions are.

Furthermore your reading comprehension is about that of a fucking two year old. Go read the state statute. It clearly says that guns may be open carried IF you have a CCW permit. If you do not have a CCW permit you may carry a concealed weapon anywhere in the state, but if a city passes an ordinance prohibiting open carry (without a CCW) you are toast. Come back when you pry your head out of your ass beaner breath. Fucking time wasting ignorant jackass.
