TKC MUST SEE!!! JACKSON COUNTY PROSECUTOR MEAN JEAN PROMOTES KANSAS CITY SUMMIT ON GUN VIOLENCE!!!
Using a "tourniquet" approach with the realization that change in Missouri gun laws in unlikely, here's the local plan to push back against gun violence . . .
Fox4: The Jackson County prosecutor will host a summit on gun violence this spring, to adopt the latest techniques in medicine and mental health care, which are allowing more victims to survive shootings.
Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker says the summit also may examine the experiment underway in Westport, where streets and sidewalks in the entertainment district are being privatized as a way to prevent people from bringing firearms into the area.
The summit will be open to anyone, but Peters Baker is reaching out to school leaders, mental health counselors and emergency room doctors in particular to develop better responses.
You decide . . .
