GUN ADVICE & KANSAS CITY HOMICIDE #69
Two more things for Tuesday night . . .
After a HORRIFIC gunfight betwixt youngsters on a Kansas City playground, the temp top cop touts gun locks as the solution:
KCPD Chief: Secure guns, protect children
"If you have a gun in your home, it is imperative that it is stored safely. If you do not have a safe in which to keep your firearm, you can get a free gun lock with no questions asked at any of our six patrol stations, Children’s Mercy Hospital, from anti-crime groups and at a number of other locations. Our officers have even passed these out in areas where children have been shot accidentally."
It's good advice, sadly locals who would leave guns around youngsters might not be willing to take it.
And then . . .
The latest death investigation is now counted as a murder:
Fox4: According to police, officers responded to an ambulance call in the 10400 block of E. 39th and were told that a man was inside and unresponsive. That man was declared dead at the scene and is now considered a homicide investigation.
This 69th murder in Kansas City so car compared to 50 at this time last year continues a deadly trend.
RIGHT NOW KANSAS CITY HOMICIDES HAVE INCREASED 38% THIS YEAR OVER LAST WITH THE MOST VIOLENT PART OF THE SUMMER AHEAD!!!
And whilst there is always good advice, safety tips, vigils and anger . . . There really isn't any new plan to curb this number as the City Hall agenda is more keenly focused on development and donations as a new election cycle approaches.
You decide . . .
