KCMO residents have to vote because they whined so much after this was attempted to be passed into law previously. Despite no tax dollars being used and MCI still retaining convenience after a new terminal is built, so many people are too blind to see that and want to stay in their 1970s way of thinking.

As far as your claim that "it has never been an international airport", that is simply untrue. MCI has US Customs and Border Protection Officers on scene to process inbound international flights. As of now, we have four airlines offering nonstop service to CUN. When they fly back to MCI, all passengers must clear customs, aka an international flight. We also have service to Punta Cana, DR, beginning next year. That, too, is an international flight. Additionally, MCI has nonstop service to YYZ. The return, however, pre-clears in YYZ, so pax arrive to MCI as if they were a domestic passenger.

MCI also receives lots of charter and other private flights from international cities all the time. Your lack of knowledge in this area should not be used to claim it's a fake international airport.

Not just downtown, but pretty much everywhere Kathleen might go during the day. Dillons, The Merc, Starbucks, etc, etc, etc...

If you read the various articles about the shootings, Officers were already downtown and in the immediate area when the shots broke out.

Cameras would be very useful downtown to aid in suspect identification.

Topeka Capital Journal reported he'd been charged 2x with felon in possession. This would've been his third, which they claim likely would've been the final 'strike' and given him a life sentence.

They do. It's called the Office of Professional Accountability.

Thank you.

You want somebody who legally owns a firearm to shoot or possibly kill somebody damaging a vehicle?

FriendlySkies (Tom Thomson) says...

What do you mean when you say "no background check"? Are you referring to being able to conceal a firearm without a license? It seems unlikely a person following the laws is going around shooting up vehicles downtown. Much more plausible the person or persons involved are of a criminal background and Kansas' CCW laws wouldn't have made a difference to their criminal plans last night.....

Interesting timing for this article...

Glad to hear I'll finally have a use for the Old Chicago GC I was given last year.

Now if only we could get a QuikTrip and Costco in West Lawrence.
