It's a new year but local progressive arguments against firearms and the 2nd Amendment repeat a flimsy premise that's politically charged and hasn't yielded any tangible results.
To wit . . .
KANSAS CITY MAYOR Q LEADS LAWSUIT AGAINST ATF THAT BLAMES GUNS FOR HISTORIC VIOLENCE!!!
It's a distraction at best. Critics of the mayor might call it yet another attack on local freedoms and a preview of emboldened politicos waging culture war amid the upcoming Biden Administration.

The complaint, which was filed in U.S. District Court in New York, alleged the ATF didn’t show enough oversight when the agency granted a license to firearms maker Jimenez Arms. That company was also the subject of a separate lawsuit filed by Kansas City leaders in April 2020. The company has since filed for bankruptcy, but according to the lawsuit, it has reopened under the name JA.
Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas joined others in a teleconference organized by Everytown for Gun Safety. Mayor Lucas said countless Jimenez firearms are found at scenes of violent crime in Kansas City. Mayor Lucas also said that manufacturer’s low prices make the guns easy to buy, use and discard.
“We have a supply problem with people who are not following legal processes, to transfer guns, to sell guns and get them into Kansas City,” Mayor Lucas said.
Nevertheless . . .
Whilst this argument doesn't sway voters in red state Missouri and Kansas. On the national level there is a growing "opportunity" for legislative progress in cutting back 2nd Amendment fredoms with the Biden Administration at the helm.
The fight for/against gun rights is likely to make a reassurance amid Democratic Party control of the White House, Senate And Congress.
Meanwhile, the bravado of gun rights activists seems to have faded.
