Shall not be infringed

Northeast News
September 14, 2016

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”

This dog thinks it’s about time for a refresher course on the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution for the Mayor and some politicos, who once again seem intent on targeting legal gun owners after a weekend of gun violence in the city’s urban core. This past week the Mayor and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters-Baker sent out invites to media types about a September 13th meeting at a local domestic violence shelter to discuss and demand State Legislators sustain the veto on Senate Bill 656, the so-called Missouri Gun Rights law. This Conservative news-canine has been highly critical of the Mayor’s ongoing plot to go after legal gun owners whenever another village idiot with a stolen or unregistered firearm wreaks havoc on the city’s streets. A perfect example of this took place last weekend in Westport when some moron shooter fired multiple shots into a crowd of people near Westport Road and Pennsylvania, sending a half dozen people to the hospital. The Mayor and his cronies could take note of a situation right across the state line this weekend as well, where a couple good guys with guns saved a woman and her small child from a possible kidnapping, carjacking and robbery in the parking lot of the Mission Wal-Mart. No surprise with the virtual main stream media black-out on that story. Those good Samaritans with firearms don’t fit the narrative, though. Again, rather than using the plethora of State, Federal and local gun laws already on the books to put bad people in jail, the Mayor and Prosecutor want to play grandstand politics with a carefully crafted press event showing shock outrage over Senate Bill that would allow law abiding citizens to carry a firearm for protection without a permit. This independently thinking news canine says once again shame on the Mayor and Prosecutor who seem to be more interested in political grandstanding than they are about public safety. This dog has said it before and will say it again. When seconds count, a good cop is minutes away. We’ll keep ours, thanks.
