Kansas City Voters Consider Prez Biden Gun Control Executive Order

Mainstream viewpoints on "the gun debate" have mostly FAILED the American public. 

Tonight we notice news of more proposed crackdowns that haven't proven effective in the past. 

Of course, consideration of the issue falls upon partisan & culture war lines . . .

Don Pind, a firearms instructor and gunsmith at Cory’s Northland Gun, said that many provisions of the order may be unenforceable, and could potentially inhibit responsible gun owners and businesses without improving public safety.

“The way they’re trying to do this now is that if you want to buy, sell or give away a gun you have to go through a gun store, which is going to put it on paper,” Pind explained. “The people who are not law-abiding citizens will not change their minds by the president signing something stupid.”

Rosilyn Temple, the founder of Kansas City Mothers in Charge, believed the measure would help reduce local gun crimes. Temple’s son was killed in a 2011 shooting.

“You don’t want to be in the place where I’m sitting after losing a child,” Temple said. “We’re in a community where we have had 29 homicides already. We have to do better. Every life matters.”
