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 . . .
