Sounds like a town with a backbone.

I'm all for people being able to protect themselves. The police can't be everywhere.
But, as a retired Marine and combat veteran, I also have experienced first hand what happens when poorly trained, inexperienced people get in a fire fight. Only on TV and in the movies are people accurate and effective without significant training under realistic conditions.
The untrained lack fire discipline which means they shoot everything that moves, don't check their targets before they pull the trigger, and don't hit what they are aiming at.
If Raymore City Counsel member feel unsafe, I am certain they can have several armed police officers present, install metal detectors, and even hire private security. They may have legitimate safety concerns, but their solution is poorly thought out and potentially quite dangerous.

Good for them. It's nice to see a group of elected leaders giving rights back to the people for a change, instead of taking them away. It takes courage to do the right thing in politics and stand up for our Constitutional rights, for which these people should be commended.
Its worth remembering that back before concealed carry was allowed in Missouri in 2003, the opponents made the same hysterical arguments against giving law abiding citizens the right to defend themselves, saying it would be complete chaos and a return to the Wild West. Those dire predictions never rang true of course, which irritates the gun grabbers to no end.
