Great idea so then you can have a shoot out with innocent people in the crossfire. That sounds smart.

Mo, and the rest of the dirt bags in the Kansas City area will continue there mission. The place is a dump and a nesting ground for scum. You want to live there, pay the consequences.

Oh, Heaven forbid some idiot tried to rob a store in the precious "Zona Rosa" aka "Plaza North". Why is this even news when so many businesses get robbed in the inner city every day? If the police could stay away from Quiktrip long enough to actually patrol the neighborhoods like they are paid to do, maybe, just maybe incidents like this would not happen as often.

FYI the police did respond it was the Zona Rosa General Manager and her security that did not. Blaming the police for not being everywhere to stop every crime is imbicilic. Our politicians make the weak laws then our judges and prosecutors make deals that let the scum back out of jail to prey on us. If more people were CCW it might make some of the smarter of the criminal element choose a safer job. If the others choose to continue then they should expect to be dealt with by their "victim".
Learn to protect yourself people, don't expect any goverment agency do it for you.

Because unlike other parts of town, the Northland residents actually CARE about our neighborhoods and will support the police in their efforts to protect our community. Security and Police cannot be everywhere at the same time. The economy brings out the worst of the people. I agree with the comment about CCW. I'd rather be able to defend myself and try to protect others than to find myself alone, outnumbered, and defenseless.

Well if you are trained properly like all CCW carriers you would understand not to shoot unless you are 100% sure what is behind the target. It is people like you who enable criminals to do what they do. If all responsible Americans carried then the criminals would think twice about committing crime. Look at the relationship between cities with the most strict gun laws and the cities with highest crime rate.

Seems that Rosemary GM thinks that there is enough security at Zona Rosa... her main concern is getting the parking meter tickets to donate to charities

It is my understanding the the General Manager of Zona Rosa did FINALLY show up on Saturday to voice her displeasure at how her security and the area was being displayed in a disparaging light, no concern about the shop owner or the fact that the area she is in charge of is being targeted as an easy spot to hit. Makes it pretty clear that the priorities are not security but image. All the more reason for people to protect themselves.
