    It was supposed to be just another evening for Ian Grillot who had walked into his favourite bar to unwind and catch the local football game. Instead, the 24-year-old is now firmly in the spotlight after getting wounded while trying to save two Indians from gunfire. As shots rang through the downtown Kansas City bar on Thursday, Grillot ducked behind a table and when he thought the gunman was out of bullets, he lunged at the man. But as the Kansas City Star reported, the man had still one round left and shot Grillot through the arm and chest. “I...

Authorities repeatedly declined at a news conference to say whether the shooting was a hate crime although local police said they were working with the FBI to investigate the case. A bartender at Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas, said that.

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has promised to revitalize America’s aging roads, bridges, railways and airports, but a plan put forward by his economic advisers relies on a transportation financing scheme that hasn’t been tried before and comes with significant risks. The plan was set out just before the election by billionaire leveraged buy-out specialist Wilbur Ross, Trump’s pick for commerce secretary, and conservative economics professor Peter Navarro, whom Trump has tapped to head his National Trade Council. They recommended the government allocate $137 billion in tax credits for private investors who underwrite infrastructure projects. Ross and Navarro estimate that...

    It’s normal for kids to get into scuffles and arguments, but not over politics. That’s what happened at a middle school in Chesterfield, Missouri when one sixth grader was attacked for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat, and his classmates recorded the assault. KMOV reported on Friday that the 12-year old was taunted, screamed at, and ultimately attacked by classmates for supporting the President. “You wanna build a wall, you wanna build a f****ing wall,” one student screamed at his classmate wearing the MAGA hat. Making matters worse, the school saw the videotape and suspended the sixth grader for defending...

Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., and Roy Blunt, R-Mo.An exemption to the Safety of Life at Sea Act, a federal law that prohibits overnight excursions on wooden vessels, is needed before the Delta Queen can carry passengers. The 285-foot-long vessel, with 88 cabins, had the exemption for roughly 40 years before losing it in 2008.The bill introduced late Tuesday would restore that exemption and require the Delta Queen, which is compliant with all other Coast Guard safety regulations, to each...

    The state of Missouri took a stand against the generational dependence upon the government, forcing welfare recipients to get a job. Approximately 41,000 Missouri residents no longer have access to the welfare food stamps program after a new time limit law went into effect in 2015. The new state law was actually a reinstatement of welfare reform enacted during President Bill Clinton’s administration. The 1996 welfare law, which has now been reinstated, limited food stamps for able-bodies and childless adults to only three months out of every three years, America Now reports. Participants would continue to receive the taxpayer-funded benefits...

That is unless Kentucky's recently crowned GOP majorities can beat them to it. The race to expand right-to-work laws is just one of several ways that Republicans, who strengthened their grip on power in the November elections, are preparing to reshape state laws affecting workplaces, classrooms, courtrooms and more during 2017.

One issue that ought to unite the country, however, is the need for election integrity. After all, it is through the ballot box that voters will select our local, state, and federal leaders. It is imperative that the vote accurately reflects the will of our citizens. Many on the left, however, are unconcerned with the protection of each individual’s vote. They quickly dismiss voter fraud as a myth meant to justify voter suppression. Perhaps progressives...

    As a life NRA member, like many of you I was puzzled and dismayed by the news that the NRA had endorsed the Democrat candidate for Governor of Missouri. What but how could that be? This report from GotNews.com lays it out. The Republican candidate is Eric Greitens, a Navy SEAL! There must be more to the story and there is. GotNews.com has presented the whole picture of exactly who Greitens is; and it’s not very attractive for genuine American conservatives. Greitens is former Democrat, a globalist and a man who has strong connections to “the Clinton Foundation, George Soros,...

    It’s now law. In Missouri, you no longer need a license to carry a firearm in public. They’re the 12th state to adopt such a law known as constitutional carry; Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) represents a state with such a law. To those who love freedom and the Second Amendment, it’s a great day for the expansion of constitutional rights. For anti-gun liberals, it’s a day for hysterics, which wasperfectly captured by the editorial board of The New York Times: The measure has drawn no great national attention, but it certainly provides further evidence that gun safety cannot be...

    JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri became the latest state to allow residents to carry a concealed weapon without a permit when lawmakers supported the change Wednesday. Tense debate during the legislature's annual veto override session encompassed themes of race and class as lawmakers clashed over whether to override Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of Senate Bill 656. In the days leading up to the session the debate drew national attention, with organizations on both sides of the issues working to influence lawmakers. Another controversial part of the bill is its "stand your ground" provision, which will allow residents to use deadly force...
