St. Louis recently reclassified parks as child care facilities in an effort to ban guns there. It’s an effort to get around the state’s preemption law, and one that I seriously doubt will survive a legal challenge, but also a measure that’s not likely to have much of an impact on the criminals who are causing the problems.
Despite that, it seems some want Kansas City to pass a similar measure.
With state lawmakers throwing up roadblocks, both Kansas City and St. Louis leaders have been forced to get creative in their attempts to reduce the gun violence that has plagued Missouri’s largest metro areas.
In this anything-goes gun-rights state, cities have little wiggle room to enact even the most modest restrictions on firearms.
Now, St. Louis has taken action to keep guns out of city parks. The St. Louis Board of Aldermen recently approved an ordinance that classifies the city’s parks as child care facilities, which state law mandates are gun-free zones.
Sooo, pass more laws for people that already break laws? Yes, minors talking a gun anywhere is breaking the law. Domestic abusers? Think those losers will follow such laws? Alas, this is how the left “thinks”
