Overland Park wants more legal advice on gun rules

Council member Jim Hix, chairman of the public safety committee, said the open carry ordinance prompted a strong negative public reaction over the idea of seeing people walking the streets with guns strapped to their sides.

“We heard loud and clear. It was not popular with the citizens,” he said.

Overland Park resident Ed Rowe, who spoke at the meeting Wednesday, said he was among those who would not feel safer seeing armed citizens at a mall or other public setting.

“I think we need more restrictions, not fewer,” Rowe said. “I hope you will tighten the rules.”

5. Overland Park is just a bedroom community for KC

if this were Hays, you would have a point.

3. Just like homosexuals and inter-racial couples shouldn't be allowed to hold hands in public.

 

Open exercise of freedom, liberty and Constitutional Rights is BAD. Bad, I say!

8. Isn't teaching "gun safety" one of those RW-NRA talking points?

 

Isn't this a slippery slope?

If gun safety is taught, won't those being taught about gun safety
--want to own firearms for self-defense in their homes?
--want to own firearms for hunting?
--want to own firearms for the sport of target practice?

Wouldn't it have more value to teach bean-can throwing in the schools?

7. So why do you care what a republican thinks?

 

Oh, so it doesn't matter if it's a right winger as long as they say something you like. Got it. Keep that in mind next time you accuse someone else of using RW talking points.

9. Hey Overland, the first question you should ask is:

 

"Has Open Carry ever been a problem anywhere?".

The answer is, of course, a resounding "NO." Freedom, Liberty and the open exercise of Constitutional Rights has never been harmful to anyone not suffering from mental illness or Bigotry.

And that should be the end of your stupid questions.
