Karla May, Missouri State Senator for District 4 and part of the Democratic Party, was on air during the Freeman Bosley Jr. Radio Show & podcast. Senator May started with, “First of all, Tennessee had a mass shooting just like we did here in St. Louis. And so we can not forget about these young people and how guns are playing a role in this. We’re finding with these legislative bodies that they are more concerned about the 2nd Amendment than they are the lives of young children and citizens that are dying in the hands of guns. And they don’t want to take any responsibility or any role that they have played in the escalation of crime as a result of laxed gun laws.”

And what could be making matters worse, she added, “You’re talking about a major city with a 20 to 25 percent poverty rate. So when you have poverty, school closings” along with laxed gun laws, gun crimes tend to increase. And in these same neighborhoods, “We had to file health care by initiative petition just to even get it passed. Because you got poor people and people without health care, the basic quality of life.”

Senator May said, “This is not about republicans or democrats, it’s about what’s right and wrong. So if someone can’t say something is wrong, then there is something wrong with him.”
