There's no tourism in Kansas City and there's nothing to do. Most things are closed, nothing to speak of at Union Station. Crown Center is dead, no festivals, nothing. Oh I forgot there's now a tour to look at graffiti and dangerous riots to attend. My mistake these things are very important to our black community and educational too. Today they will talk about the history of the fake civil war and how they removed all of the statues that are irrelevant to that era because it never happened. I wonder if they will talk about who built the Plaza? OOOPs again I forgot, no one built it, it was just part of the big bang I guess.

I know what you can do in Kansas City...Buy more ammo. Buy ammo, keep your powder dry, and be prepared to defend your life and property if you are just about anywhere south of the river.

@10:01, have you been to a Sporting Goods or Gun Store in the past six months? If you don't already have ammo, good luck - the shelves are bare, and get cleaned out as soon as anything comes off a truck!
If you're not picky, you can find a small amount of .22 Shorts or 12 and 16 Gauge Birdshot.

Being prepared means having the necessities on hand BEFORE the fan gets hit!

@10:13. I haven't been to a "Sporting Goods" store in years. I buy my ammo online, and continue to do so when I can, my latest purchase being 1,000 rounds of 9mm JHP for .43 a round, shipped. So I look for bargains when I can in this climate, even though the left would certainly call my small cache of weapons and ammo an arsenal (I call it a beginning). I could barter for years with my large cache of .223 alone. The comment was aimed (pardon the pun) largely at new gun owners and those who don't know, or willfully ignore, the dangers of certain zip codes in KC. They believe that their liberal nature is enough to insulate them from the criminal mind. It's not, as evidenced by the black-on-black crime rate. Criminals don't care if you support their race.

Too bad the KC school district has to feed the kids, too. I say if you can't feed'em, don't breed'em! Uncle Sam is not your babydaddy!

the whole push to open the schools is just so private schools can make money
