COMMITTEE SUBSTITUTE FOR RESOLUTION NO. 000182, AS AMENDED

 

Expressing the support of the City Council for the proposed Missouri legislation entitled An Act to amend chapter 571, RSMo, by adding thereto nine new sections relating to firearms, with penalty provisions.

 

WHEREAS, the carnage throughout the country brought about by wide distribution of weapons suited for little else than killing people is well known; and

 

WHEREAS, the Council believes that regulation of such weapons is sorely needed if progress is to be made addressing the problem; and

 

WHEREAS, a Bill titled An Act to amend chapter 571, RSMo, by adding thereto nine new sections relating to firearms, with penalty provisions is being introduced in the Missouri Senate in order to impose regulations on weapons which are best adapted to killing people; and

 

WHEREAS, enacting the legislation will make a substantial contribution toward making our streets safe for our citizens; NOW, THEREFORE,

 

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE COUNCIL OF KANSAS CITY:

 

That the Council expresses its strong support for passage of the Senate Bill entitled An Act to amend chapter 571, RSMo, by adding thereto nine new sections relating to firearms, with penalty provisions, a copy of which Act is attached hereto and incorporated herein by reference. This resolution shall be communicated to the Senate by forwarding a copy to each Senator with the vote of the Council to be included in the letter of transmittal.
