Kansas City Mayor Sly James spoke on Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2016, during a new conference at the Rose Brooks Center, a domestic violence facility in Kansas City. James and other speakers, including Jackson County Executive Frank White (left) and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker, urged the Missouri Legislature to uphold Gov. Jay Nixon’s veto of legislation to expand concealed carry in the state, claiming the billâs lack of permits or background checks to carry concealed weapons would make it easier for domestic abusers to have firearms.
