DOUBLE TAKE: KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS AND MISSOURI GUV PARSON AGREE TO GUN CONTROL CRACKDOWN DOG AND PONY SHOW?!?



Local reporting on paperwork criminal justice reforms has been far too encouraging and optimistic . . .

Here's the crux of Mayor Q's latest effort and where he is being entertained by the Missouri Guv . . .

"They agreed on three top priorities to make communities in Missouri safer: additional funding for witness protection programs, better access to mental health care and stricter gun control.

"One of those measures is to ensure minors do not have access to handguns. Currently, it is a federal felony for anyone under 18 to possess a handgun, but Missouri has no such law. This makes it difficult for prosecutors when charging young offenders.

“For obvious reasons, prosecutors don’t want to refer juveniles to the federal system, and I don’t think any of us want kids to be in that federal judiciary system,” said Columbia Mayor Brian Treece after the meeting at the state capitol. “So having a state companion law that closes that loophole between the nonexistent law in state government and the federal felony law, I think, could give law enforcement the tools they need.”

"They also want firearms out of the hands of violent offenders and domestic abusers. Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said these are not radical reforms and can make a real difference."

And so we ask . . .

WILL THE THREAT OF A BI-PARTISAN GUN CRACKDOWN CLEAN UP KANSAS CITY STREETS EVEN IF MOST OF THE LEGISLATION IS ALREADY ON THE BOOKS?!?

Around the nation and right here in KCMO we've seen that tougher gun laws are useless if they're not enforced.

MEANWHILE THERE'S NO INDICATION THAT PROSECUTORS AND JUDGES ARE WILLING TO USE NEW LAWS AGAINST MINORS AND FIRST TIME OFFENDERS!!!

And so we wonder if this is all political theater as the GOP leader and our KCMO mayor may have found something in common given that they're both very likeable but not quite inspiring in their "leadership" or lack thereof . . .

KCUR: Missouri Governor Parson Agrees To Back Stricter Statewide Gun Restrictions

KCTV5: The governor of Missouri, police chiefs and mayors from around the state say they are ready to move forward with what they are calling “common sense” changes to gun laws.

KMBC: The solutions included spending about $1 million more for witness protection and creating a triage center for people who need mental health help more than jail. There was no estimate to the cost of that program.

I like the fact that he's trying to get some cooperation. Sly basically did the same thing but he started out by blaming Missouri Republicans. At least Quinton wants to work with the people in Jeff City.

^^^You fool Lucas isn't going to do shit but look pretty for the cameras and tell his boyfriends where the pictures are.

Common Sense would be to go after those who break the law using a gun. How about 25 to life if you use a weapon in a crime with no parole.

All this smoke, is to cover the real agenda, which will be, to make it easier to prosecute guys like George Zimmerman, who are at least "Half White" when they defend themselves against the attacks of minority criminals.

Disenfranchising and disarming the white population one step at a time, so there we are "Hong Kong Helpless" when the Administrative Deep State finally drops the curtain and attains totalitarian "Progressive" control over everything.

The US does not have a gun problem, it has a _____________ problem. Factor out minority gun crime the US has gun violence / murder rates as low as the homogeneous white countries such as dennmark, sweden switzerland. Must they ruin everything for everyone else?

White people are demons from hell who infect the earth with a blood lust leaving bodies in their path...take the Native Americans for example white people will be celebrating their genocide in what the demons call Thanksgiving.

Forget the GUNS. Put the Brothers away instead of making excuses for their evil.
