Round-up of the Jeff City conversation that's more important than it seems because the State Legislature is where KCMO gun restrictions usually go to die. Read more:

Fewer gun-free zones or fewer guns: Missouri lawmakers split on what's safer

CLOSE JEFFERSON CITY - A day after a gunman killed 17 people at a Florida high school, Missouri lawmakers were split on what action could be taken to keep such a tragedy from happening here. A 19-year-old armed with a semi-automatic rifle on Wednesday pulled a fire alarm at a high school in Parkland, Florida and opened fire as people streamed into the hallways.

Rather than making guns illegal, can’t we just make murder illegal? Oh, that’s right. It already is illegal, a law that doesn’t seem to be working.
I like my AR-15. It is good for hunting deer and coons

....and with cities like KC and STL the legislature doesn't get that criminals will get guns and commit crimes without their consent? This whole idea that any felon should not own a gun is a farce for many reasons, the biggest being that most felons are not violent offenders.

It is not about punishing someone and keeping them from getting guns. it is about identifying parameters that should keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals. In the Florida case you have a suspect who has engaged in violent behavior in his own family unit, but was never charged with domestic violence. He was kicked out of more than one school over behavioral issues and was expelled from at least one for violent behavior. He glorified violence in his social media postings and even went so far as to identify himself as a future school shooter. At least once person notified the FBI concerning his perceptions of the posts this individual was making and the FBI did absolutely nothing - apparently they we too busy chasing investigating politicians, AL QUEDA and tapping phones. The FBI did not communicate the report to BATF either. Not a single person at the school ever reported this individual even though it was a common belief among several students that if there was ever a school shooting the shooter would be this perp. Damn near every fucking red flag that could exist was present and no one did anything.

Now we have the same "authorities" pissing and moaning wanting Federal legislative action on guns when the problem seems to be the very authorities and bureaucrats sitting on their fat asses and too busy to stop a real threat. We don't need more laws on guns. We need laws on metal illness and gun access and we need statutes that provide criminal punishment for public employees who do not take appropriate action in the presence of such a threat. As it stands the priorities seem just a little bit fucked.

Slippery slope going down that road with mental illness, you could ask your doctor for meds because your wife or husband or even a child dies and boom all of a sudden your on the “crazy list”. You just got cutoff from owning weapons of any kind, they are a long way from fixing that part. We all know how stupid government officials are when it comes to do anything right so, don’t hold your breathe this will be a long battle...... and it will be ugly

Have lost both a wife and adult child. Sadness, grief, yes but no meds. What is it in this country where one needs a pill for everything that's not pleasing? Drugs, opioids, the world must laugh at America as we consume all this shit. If snowflakes OD my sympathy is minimal. This country is becoming one huge marshmallow.
