TKC BLOG CONSENSUS: MAYOR SLY JAMES MUST FOCUS ON REDUCING DEADLY KANSAS CITY GUN VIOLENCE FIRST!!!



Last night our blog community had an important conversation on Mayor Sly's open letter encouraging Florida student activism challenging Prez Trump and a youth movement against gun violence.

Conclusion . . .

MAYOR SLY SHOULD FOCUS ON CURBING HOMICIDE IN KANSAS CITY BEFORE HE PLAYS PARTISAN ANTI-GUN POLITICS!!!

I may not 100% agree but the message from the vast majority of readers was clear . . . More gun control laws aren't the solution. Instead, focusing efforts and resources on targeting criminals holds more promise.

The low-key compromise here that should appeal to both Conservatives & Progressives is enforcement of gun laws already on the books. Time and time again we've noted that The Kansas City Gun Experiment is one of the few promising initiatives that briefly worked to reduce gun violence and focused on enforcement over new policies.

Our pal Super Dave also offered a timely meme for consideration . . .



You decide . . .

Lots of good comments on that thread.

Hopefully, they'll come back up again when Sly runs for Congress.

It’s good Sly encourages kids to help fix the gun violence in Florida. The kids should encourage Sly to get off his lard ass and fix gun violence in Kansas City

They pretty much ripped on black people big time for their behavior and genetics though MR. FREE SPEECH was heavy on the delete key, thereby ignoring the truth yet again. Were you reading a different comment thread maybe:

Bow tie the clown sLIE
Come and get them, SJW cuntholes.
The totality of Black African history can be divided into three eras which are: Mud and Feathers; Whips and Chains; Drugs and Welfare.
KILLA city is a closed down ghetto everyone is getting the fuck out of

...yeah lots of good comments.

The only effective gun control would be total confiscation as is often used in totalitarian regimes. But for the government to try that would lead to all out war on its citizens who would mostly disobey any such law.
Any gun control measures short of confiscation are just something politicians can propose to satisfy their anti gun base.

sLIE is a joke, trying to get a bunch of kids to do his job, speaking of which, he can’t do his own job let alone tell other people how to do theirs. He’s nothing but a do nothing blow hard

He should focus on inner city violence. I'm not a fan of his but to his credit: he tried to create a "gun court" to expedite cases of those who had been charged with a crime while using a gun but was preempted by the state. I've to realize that YT wants gun violence in the inner city and does everything they can to ensure it happens

I think we should give a teenager Mayor Bullhorn's job. Even if they made the wrong choice, they would do something--which would be a 100% improvement over our current clown-in-chief.

Aw, look...Chris Hernandez weighed in at 10am! From City Hall.

Has anyone watched Our Cartoon President, Stephen Colbert's weekly 30 min. sensational spoof, on Showtime?

Chris is starting to remind me of Eric Trump. Nice guy, did good work when he was PR honcho at the Unicorn, but now just a homer for Sly.

Yet the City still needs that $85k contract with the gal, the Pureaucrat Whisperer, in addition to Hernandez huge staff, just to remind Troy Schulte to shut up, and stop kicking his dog when the Council speaks truth to power.

Pathetic town.

CITY HALL INSIDER LEAKS SYLVESTER'S ROUGH DRAFT NOTES WHEN COMPOSING LETTER TO FLORIDA STUDENTS

Dear students, (READ: Dear Liberal anti-gun, anti-Constitution douchebags, please contact the national media and get me some publicity for this screed)

"I've been listening the news" (yes, I actually wrote that)
"This is especially sad and ridiculous, even infuriating, considering the situation was both predictable and preventable." (This is an accurate statement, but I'm now going to throw logic out the window, and fail to address how the community, school administrators, mental health, local law enforcement, and FBI seemingly ignored this ticking timebomb.)
"According to The ​New York Times" (yes, I'm quoting the Liberal rag that serves as the federal government's number one propagandist, and is kept afloat by a major shareholder backed by drug cartel money.)
"Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting" (I wouldn't be an anti-gun Liberal if I didn't mention the school shooting drill at Newtown CT which was falsely sold to the public as a real event by complicit corporate media. Do your research, as it's clearly evident.)
Alert! Here comes my biggest LIE
"This carnage is spreading like a raging infection left untreated. The difference between an infection and school shootings, however, is that at least a doctor diagnoses, treats and tries to cure the infection. Politicians and other adults who should act like doctors — caring for a nation infected by gun violence — make absolutely no effort to diagnose and treat this disease." (Like a Liberal Democrat KCMO Mayor with an untreated brain infection, wasting time writing letters to FL schoolchildren, while presiding over one of America's deadliest urban centers? And did you notice how I slammed "politicians" while completely ignoring the fact that I'm a corrupt politician, penning a political screed in hopes of getting an interview with the Liberal corporate media?)
"Students, it should be clear to you by now that the adults responsible for protecting you have been unable, unwilling or incapable of doing so." (This is true, but not in the way I wrote it. I would like you to believe that the NRA, gun manufacturers, President Trump, and Republicans in general have failed to protect you. In reality, the school administrators, local law enforcement, community mental health, caregivers, and FBI all completely failed to take the basic steps to keep you protected from this deranged young man who had been broadcasting his desire to become a "professional school shooter" to anyone who would listen in the months preceding the tragedy. Do you know why the psychos target soft targets? No resistance! Your school and community failed to protect you, but that has nothing to do with gun control.)
After going WAY off tangent, all the way to Vietnam, let me leave these kids with something to inspire all of them to become community activists.
"Show us that our country’s young people — black, white, brown, gay, straight, religious, atheist, poor, rich, rural, urban — can all come together to save your own lives and in the process, save our country from ourselves. This is your time to take charge and show our nation the way. This time you lead and I, and other adults, will join. Your lives may very well depend on it." Did you notice that I'm discriminating against Asian bisexual agnostic middle-class suburban kids? I hate those kids! Oh, and when I say it's your time to lead, I only mean that in the rhetorical sense, as I have no intention whatsoever of ceding my political ambitions to some millennial sheep who thinks they can run against me for Congress. Keep it frosty, snowflakes!

The Mayor should go on Amazon and order bullet proof vests for the people of KCMO. No wonder Amazon looked over our fine city - murder everywhere!! This crazy place. Citizens killing each other, politicians (the mayor) knee deep in city hall corruption (and a 30-something council so green their naivete is embarrassing!) And a city manager running the show without consulting his council, because no one has the balls to shut him up, rein him in, give him a performance review. Swiss cheese, no bid, free look, inside deal Corrupt Troy. Fire him, let him take the golden parachute, its just big enough he should have the time and money to move to another city and run their reputation in the ground. Private meetings at a private member only club and a private access to a $1 Billion airport deal?! Corrupt Troy should be the check mate to a mayor that screams and bullies his council, but Corrupt Troy is in the thick of it. Bully Sly and Corrupt Troy - KC's own Bonnie and Clyde. Well done Cow Town, Well done!

Tracy Thomas said...

Well said, 11:19--
But do we also suspect that with his awarding of contracts, Troy Schulte has carved out a job for himself right here in river City, once the council takes the clothespins off their noses?

Former City Manager Bob Kipp (Wheeler era) migrated gracefully to Hallmark, a mile and three quarters south of City Hall. Just wheeled his leather chair over from 12th & Oak over to Grand it was a straight shot! But Kipp was a Boy Scout, and as far as we know, was not corrupt. A good guy.

THE CRIME IN KC IS SO BAD IM NOT SURE A GUN IS ENOUGH

Anonymous said...

Sly is the perfect example of why our culture is a sewer. He's a gutless political hack who toes the Democrat party line of keeping black people drugged, on welfare and needing the government to provide for them. If he had any courage he would call out the young men of KCMO to care for their children (or better yet, not to father any until they're capable of providing for them) and he would call out community leaders for making excuses for their misconduct. How about encouraging them to get an education instead of going out and protesting? What a puppet.

What good comments? Sly running his mouth about killings elsewhere, but never a word about the killing here. Fat lazy lying turd Sly.

Your pal SuperDouche's pic paints a false equivalency.

The function of a gun is to kill people, quickly. Yes, there are other ways to kill people, but the gun is the most efficient. That's why it was invented.


Other countries don't have these mass murders & school shootings.

Good thing we have a Second Amendment that means the gun manufacturer's profits are more important than you or your children.

The flash drive has other uses.
The pocket knife has other uses.
The lighter has other uses.

The gun, especially the hand gun, has no other use.

Its only function is to kill people.

This is why conservatives love gun so much, because they are a bully's tool.

5:52 and 6:06 do you really think gun owners are the most evil things on the planet? Not just the few sick people who murder. Why would you dare lump every gun owner in this? You have definitely been watching too much cnn, you know, the kings of fake news. Why don’t you go to a gun range and meet the fine men and women who own and shoot these guns? No, too chicken shit to find out the truth? Thought so

Americans own over 200 million guns and have over 12 trillion rounds of Ammo, seriously people, if we were the problem, you’d know it.

You will never take our guns away, get used to that fact.

6:06 you miserable slut, a gun has many uses beyond just killing people. Cars kill people too but I bet you're never going to give your car up.


If your forefathers hadn't been able to use a gun to hunt for food I doubt your fat ass would be here today. Your great grand whoever would probably have starved to death.
