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 . . .
