JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – The mayors of Missouri’s two largest cities are scheduled to be in Jefferson City today, to argue against what they’re calling “senseless gun legislation.”

St. Louis’ Francis Slay and Kansas City’s Sly James say House Bill 1439 would “undermine the safety of urban neighborhoods.”

The bill, passed earlier this month, would nullify some federal gun laws and punish federal agents who enforce those laws.

Slay calls the bill “absurd and embarrassing.”
