Should there be a waiting period to purchase a handgun in Kansas?

Asked at Massachusetts Street on July 01, 2007

“Oh yes. They're lethal weapons. I would have to wonder why they're in a rush to buy a handgun. If they are in imminent danger, then they should call the police.”

“I don't think that you should be able to buy a handgun at all. So at the very least I think there should be a waiting period - your whole lifetime, maybe.”

“No. It's a Second Amendment issue. You have the right to buy a gun whenever you want to. From an outdoorsman's perspective, that's kind of the way I feel about it.”

“Yes. There's a waiting period to get a marriage license; there should be one to get a gun.”
