In the aftermath of one of the deadliest school shootings the nation has ever witnessed, there still is no consensus on the future of gun control in Kansas City or throughout the nation.
While there is overwhelming KCMO urban core and Midtown support for gun control those efforts are typically SMACKED DOWN by Jeff City and far more Conservative Missouri Statehouse lawmakers. Over the past few years there has been little compromise or progress in local demand for increased gun regulation.
Instead, we notice locals aligning themselves with like-minded individuals in order to reinforce their opinions.
Here are a few examples . . .
Plaza Anti-Gun Protest Is A Local Tradition After Tragedy
A woman in Everett, Washington, was looking through her grandson's journal Monday night when she found something that would forever change her view of him.

Gun Rights Proponents Put Their 2nd Amendment Freedom Into Practice With Despite Calls For Reform
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- On Saturday, Kansas City was the tale of two cities. At the Plaza, a rally to remember the victims of gun violence; specifically, the 17 people killed in Parkland Florida. Just 30 minutes away, the KCI Expo Center hosted a gun show.
Educators Offered Perspective On High Stakes Amid Increasing Culture War
A Facebook post from a local teacher that said the Florida shooting had her so on edge she was actually considering ending her 35-year career in education had us wondering how many other teachers are having that kind of internal crisis.
Sadly, nothing was resolved as the debate continues with little impact on policy despite outcry from 2nd Amendment proponents vs. Gun Rights critics who remain forever deadlocked.
And all of this inspires our playlist for tonight . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday Night . . .
