SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR SLY BLASTS MISSOURI LAWMAKERS OVER GUN LAWS!!!
His last days in office have proven exceptionally violent for KCMO and now Mayor Sly James lashes out in what seems like a desperate attempt to place blame.
The passioniate quote is hidden inside an otherwise important story by its own merits:
KCTV5: Gun violence in Kansas City continues to rip families apart
The important passage from a political perspective . . .
MAYOR SLY BLAMES MISSOURI LAW PROTECTING GUN RIGHTS FOR THE SPIKE IN KANSAS CITY MURDER!!!
Here's the argument:
The subject (of rising homicides) came up at Tuesday’s Board of Police Commissioners meeting, too, where Mayor Sly James had strong words for state lawmakers.
“We won't have anything on this until the state pulls its head out of its ass,” James said.
James was referring to current state gun laws. which he believes allow too many firearms into the city.
“We're going to continue to lead the nation -- Kansas City and St. Louis -- in homicides until the state realizes there is a correlation between the lax or nonexistent gun laws in this state and people being injured by guns,” James said.
And so we ask . . .
IS MAYOR SLY CORRECT: IS CANCELLING THE 2ND AMENDMENT THE ONLY WAY TO BRING PEACE TO KANSAS CITY?!?!
Remember that Missouri CCW freedom has been a target of progressives and the Mayor for years. Meanwhile, local efforts to restrict guns have been met with a FULL STOP in GOP dominated Jeff City.
And so, the mayor's anger not only reflects legislative challenges but also frustration with Missouri voters who have consistently supported politicos who endorse a broad spectrum of gun rights.
