KANSAS CITY STAR DEMANDS SECOND AMENDMENT REBUKE LEAVING RESIDENTS DEFENSELESS IN LOCAL PARKS!!!
Last year Kansas City police captured a suspected racist serial killer who was murdering old white dudes who were hanging out in local park hookup spots.
Just now, the newspaper offers this bad idea as they prep to drop out of daily paper status next year:
"To keep the public safe and bolster their odds of newspaper survival, today the newspaper advocates against gun rights and proves they don't know much about how Jeff City works.
"St. Louis has taken action to keep guns out of city parks. The St. Louis Board of Aldermen recently approved an ordinance that classifies the city’s parks as child care facilities, which state law mandates are gun-free zones.
"Could Kansas City steal a page from St. Louis’ playbook and do the same?
"Mayor Quinton said he’ll watch the St. Louis measure closely before deciding whether to pursue a similar proposal.
"St. Louis officials are braced for a possible legal challenge, but if the ordinance survives, Kansas City should follow St. Louis’ lead and prohibit firearms in city parks."
That's right . . .
IN ONE OF THE MOST MISGUIDED EDITORIALS OF THE YEAR, THAT KANSAS CITY STAR DEMANDS POLICE WORK TO DISARM LAW ABIDING RESIDENTS IN ORDER TO LEAVE THEM AT THE MERCY OF ARMED CRIMINALS!!!
It's a myopic, naive and dangerous plan hatched by willfully ignorant hacks who would rather risk lives by simply suggesting this kind of nonsense rather than focus on more productive ways to bring peace to Kansas City's urban core.
We can only hope they're trolling readers -- Still, this kind of radical anti-gun propaganda represents such a small segment of local opinion that the screed defies serious consideration.
Translation: This kind of tripe isn't worth getting mad about . . . It's just another example that the decline of dead-tree media isn't really sacrificing serious investigative journalism. Instead, the end of the KC newspaper simply cancels a bunch of pundits who think they know better than most of the American public, local residents and the Super-Majority in Jeff City.
Sadly, this blog is the only news-ish outlet to push back given that most social media denizens simply ignore this kind of fodder.
You decide . . .
