Kansas City Mother Urges Missouri Lawmakers to Approve Bipartisan Blair’s Law

Bipartisan legislation aimed at making celebratory gunfire a felony in Missouri is backed by victims’ families, Kansas City Police and several Kansas City-area business groups. Democratic State Representative Mark Sharp is working with a Republican and another Democrat on the bill, and testifies the problem continues in Kansas City:

Kansas City Police commanders traveled to Jefferson City last (Monday) night to testify for Representative Sharp’s Blair’s law, which is named for an 11-year-old Kansas City child killed by a stray bullet in 2011. Kansas City Police say celebratory gunfire is happening on New Year’s Eve, during Chiefs games, and on Super Bowl Sunday.
