KC mayor slams Missouri legislators for gun override attempt

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Kansas City’s mayor is accusing Missouri legislators of trying to “double down on stupid” in their push to override a veto of a measure that would broadly expand the rights of gun owners.

Sly James made the comments during a phone call with reporters as the Republican-led Legislature prepared to convene a short session Wednesday to consider overriding numerous vetoes by Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon – including the guns measure and a photo ID requirement for voters. Nixon’s status as the state’s most-overridden governor is almost certain to expand.

If the guns bill garners the necessary two-thirds vote to overturn the veto, people would be allowed to carry a concealed weapon most places in the state even without a background check or safety training. It also includes self-defense provisions.
