Conceal & Carry Controversy Spurs Gun Shop Owner to Run for Cou...

Full story: Fox4KC

The debate over the right to conceal and carry continues in Raymore. It began four weeks ago when the council voted to expand conceal and carry in the city, including the right for council members to arm themselves at meetings, but not allow citizens to do the same.

The government should be scared of it's people, and not the other way around!

How about metal detectors, manned by sheriff's deputies. I'd rather see a tussle when someone tries to sneak past with a gun, than a shoot-out between the council and its constituents.

Maybe, just maybe the 3 council members and mayor could not pass the background check for gun ownership? Is that why they vote against the ordinance?

THE REAL STORY. Councilmembers Adams and Cox are seeking more political power and are running for higher office. They have staged this drama to qualify for NRA financial support and to convice people, too stupid to actually read the legislation, that they are the candidates of the people. This is about their lust and greed for power, not the peoples rights.
With regard to the two women council members. One is a Nazi bombing survivor that went on to become a trauma nurse. She has experienced first hand what can happen when corrupt politicians and thugs get their hands on guns. The other is a nationally recognized, award winning community development activist, who is directly responsible for getting federal dollars to fund Raymore's park system and in getting Millions of doallars in corporate gifts donated to local charities to help local poor.
The very people you say we, Raymore residents, need to get rid of have done more to protect you and the future of your children than all of the self-promoting politicians wanting your vote.

Well as of 2 minutes ago Councilman Adams was not running for higher office. I do not know where you get your info from but i got mine straight from the his relatives mouth..
I sure hope that no one breaks into your home and you have nothing to defend yourself with. That would sure be shame.
I am totally for this. Why should we not be able to carry leagally when all the thugs are caring, and will contiunue to do so. Maybe if you met one on a corner you would want this too..

You are definetly on the right track Dutch. Vote them out and send fresh air into a rather stale enviornment. I will support you in this effort. Thankfully the State has given me the right to protect myself and my family with conceal carry. And I can't standby and watch local politicians try to make more rules to take away these rights.

This is unreal!!!! Why wouldn't I want people around me to be legally armed? I purchased 2 handguns recently and plan on getting my CCW permit as soon as warmer weather arrives. Do you know that you must have a clean record to just be able to wn a gun in Missouri? How many people with a CCW permit have murdered anyone? Is there a statistic of such a thing? I haven't heard of any. No I don't live in Jeff City or any other place that shows up with my name. I live in rural Cass County.

My guns have never been on the street. T bought them at Dutchs and my record has been clean for 65 years. No crimnal activity. If you are smart and can pass a background check, you should own at least one for yourself. If you are NOT smart or can not pass a background check, do not try to purchase one. It's not for you.
