    Raymore City Hall Gearing Up for Fight Over Gun Ordinance - WDAF



    RAYMORE, MO - The Raymore City Council voted this week to allow council members to carry a concealed weapon at their meetings, and increase the concealed carry permit rights for everyone in town. But those changes could be short-lived after the mayor promised to veto the ordinance, and a showdown could be looming at City Hall.

    Raymore Mayor Juan Alonzo says that he plans on vetoing the ordinance, which passed by a 5-3 vote earlier this week. At this point, it appears that the measure does not have the six votes necessary to override the mayor's veto.

    "The council back in 2004 elected to restrict concealed carry in city buildings," said Alonzo. "This bill overturns that and it allows concealed carry in every city building."

    What bothers Alonzo more than allowing concealed weapons into city buildings is that it allows council members to carry weapons inside city buildings, but not citizens.

    "If people stop and think about that, about what that is doing, it's completely opposite of what the Second Amendment is supposed to do," said Alonzo. "There's no interpretation for that, there's nothing in there that you can interpret to say, yeah the governing body can carry while the rest of us don't."

    But some Raymore residents say that they are unhappy with Alonzo's quick veto trigger.

    "If today's society was where we didn't need to carry guns, I would love that," said Raymore resident Dutch Becker, who also owns a gun store in the town. "But today's society is changing. Look at the crime rates in Kansas City, they're on the rise, and surrounding areas, we're not immune to anything."

    Becker says that those opposed to the veto will be civil at the next council meeting, but that doesn't mean that they won't take action. Mayor Alonzo and several council members are up for re-election in April.

    "I think we're going to show our power when it comes time to vote," said Becker. "I've already said, I have all respect for the mayor. I know him personally. But if he vetoes this, I will not vote to re-elect him."

    The mayor should just tell the council to re-write it to include citizens, then he won't have to veto it.

    The Mayor is right on this, all or nothing and Mr. Becker is an wrong in my view and not thinking about this rationally.

    I agree with the Mayor... why are they being so selective on who can carry, anyone with a CCL should be able to.

    +1 on what the Mayor said. He isn't against guns, he's against the city council sitting themselves above the average citizen. Either everyone who can legally carry is allowed or no one is allowed.
