KANSAS CITY, Missouri- Anti-fascist activists gathered to protest in Kansas City were told by police they could have their guns or ammunition, they just can’t have both.
On Saturday, police enforced a city ordinance that prohibits possession of a weapon, “readily capable of lethal force.” Sgt. Kari Thompson explains the municipal statute allows possession of a weapon, but that the firearm and ammunition cannot be together.
The protesting group says that violates their rights to openly carry guns but they complied with the order.
Some are concerned the law is not equally enforced.
The NY Times says Kevin Jamison, an attorney who specializes in weapons and self-defense, including Second Amendment rights believes the ordinance is allowed but questionable. He said the disarm order was a bad idea, even if it was legal.
