TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! MISSOURI INSIDER: GUV PARSON PLAYED KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS!!! ANTI-GUN REFORM DEAD ON ARRIVAL IN JEFF CITY!!!
Recently, MSM celebrated the illusion of compromise on gun control in Kansas City.
Turns out, from a policy perspective, conversations betwixt lawmakers were nothing more than publicity stunt hype.
The idea of stricter state-wide gun restrictions has been a constant source of tension betwixt Kansas City vs. Jeff City for at least the past four years.
Both Jackson County Prosecutor and former Mayor Sly James have directed scathing criticism against Missouri Republicans and basically blamed the Jeff City GOP for the Kansas City murder count.
The idea that new Mayor Quinton Lucas could win gun control in Jeff City would offer an impressive restart for the tense relationship among rural Missouri conservatives and Kansas City progressives on this controversial topic.
Again, legislative compromise would be nice but that's not going to happen . . .
EXCLUSIVE AND FIRST ON TKC: MISSOURI CONSERVATIVES VOW TO SHUT DOWN ANY AND ALL GUN CONTROL PROPOSALS FROM KANSAS CITY!!! MOREOVER, THE RECENT COWTOWN MEDIA BLITZ WAS SIMPLY GUV PARSON RUNNING CAMPAIGN GAME IN KANSAS CITY WITH LITTLE TO NO BENEFIT FOR THE NEWBIE KCMO MAYOR!!!
Here's the word:
"I can't believe Mayor Quinton Lucas would let himself get used like that. (Guv) Parson isn't going to put any gun control on the table. His own party would trash it without consideration. An Executive order would be overturned. However, none of that's going to happen because this was just Governor Parson campaigning in order to pick up a few votes and increase his name recognition in KCMO. What did (Mayor) Lucas get out of it? The social media love might be nice but that doesn't translate into votes. For people who actually know what's going on here . . . The Mayor's team allowed him to be used as a prop. It's embarrassing and anyone who follows the legislation in Missouri is going to be very disappointed."
History has proven this Kansas City Insider correct. The GOP dominated Missouri General Assembly is packed with rabid pro-gun advocates who are nearly zealots in defense of the 2nd Ammendment. On the Missouri side of the metro, Republican leaders have politely ignored the calls for gun reform but also share a history of voting down any significant changes.
Meanwhile, as violence and the KCMO murder count continue to escalate, it's doubtful that legislation at any level is going to help control the current spate of deadly violence on local streets.
