Missouri--Attend Important Hearing on
Kansas City Daytime Curfew Wednesday, April 18

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Citizens who value freedom will have an important opportunity to
defeat the proposed daytime curfew law at a Public Safety Committtee
hearing on Wednesday, April 18.

Officials who want to make it a crime for a young person to move about
freely during the day will use this hearing to push their agenda.
Those who value freedom should respond firmly.

The cosmetic changes that have been made to the ordinance since the
last hearing are superficial. They do not change the fact that it
would make it a crime for a young person to move about freely during
the day without his parent.

Councilman Wagner and a line of important-sounding people will be
there to try to justify the ordinance. Will you be there to be the
voice of the citizen to protect simple freedom?


If you live in Kansas City--or ever plan to visit there with
children--please stand up for freedom by attending the meeting. A big
crowd will send a powerful message about freedom!

Parking is challenging. Leave plenty of time to find a parking space.
Consider carpooling with friends.

This is not a good setting for small children who need a diaper bag or
stroller. Be courteous and polite at all times. You may feel angry
or outraged about this threat to freedom--but it's very important to
express yourself with self control.

The meeting will take place at 10:30 a.m. on the 26th floor of City
Hall, 414 East 12th St., Kansas City, MO. No knives, pepper spray,
etc., may be brought into the building.


Although the ordinance provides many exceptions, they are individually
quite narrow. Dozens of exceptions can't turn a bad law into a good
law! Exceptions simply shift the burden of proving innocence onto our
children's shoulders. And for most simple activities you would be
happy for your children to do during the day, there is no exception.

Thank you for standing with us to protect freedom!
