Accidental shooting at high school graduation ceremony in southern Kansas injures 2 people

I'm all for conceal and carry but if you can't abide by the law, you should have your carry rights taken away. And in a case like this prosecution is in order. Carring a firearm is a serious matter. If you can't take it seriously (with a proper holster) and obeying all the laws, you have no bussiness owning a firearm.

Lawrence Historic Resources board delays vote on East Ninth design, told plan is a 'slap in the face' to history

To clarify or add a little more to my statement. My sister lives along the 9th street corridor. She actually just moved today. She has been to a meeting or two but with her schedule it was impossible for her be more involved.

I'll actually be moving into her house within a month or two. I just recently looked at the updated plans a few weeks ago. While I do like many of the ideas for the 9th St. Corridor there are a few that I don't like and I voiced my opinion above. I may have been a little unfair about the please listen to us statement. But after talking with a few of my future neighbors in my immediate area it kinda sounded like their voices were kinda of going unheard or possibly ignored.

I have been invited to a meeting but was unable to attend do to work. I would like to be more involved in the future if at all possible to represent my sisters property and the house and neighborhood that I will be calling home.

What do the neighbors think?

Please don't put a public gathering area in my yard even though it's on a city right of way.

Please don't flood our neighbor hood with annoying sounds.

Please don't take away over half of our parking.

Please keep it simple and don't go overboard with things that you think would improve our neighborhood.

Please listen to us....

City Commission vote pushes gun range into Lawrence shopping center

Someone fill me in. I need to know why people seem to think gun ranges belong in less populated areas of the city. Just wondering because places like the Comunity Building range has existed there since 1951 without issues. And the Gun Guys in Ottawa is located basically in the middle of down town Ottawa. I'm not wanting to debate. Just curious.

After a second look, Lawrence planning commission recommends approval of gun range off 31st Street

The gun range has been open since the building was built in 1942 I believe. It was also currently used (until closed) by the Navy ROTC. The Douglas County Rifle Gun Club took over operations in 1990 or 92.

Lawrence orders shutdown of Community Building gun range

It's been 20+ years since the Gun Free School Zone Act has been passed. This has been an issue with the city in the past. But the city has found the range to be in compliance before. What has changed with the city? Is someone higher up pulling strings?

The law does state if you're in a school zone that your firearm must be in a locked container or be on private property. But if you have a conceal and carry license, you can carry leagally in a school zone. So why can't people with a CCL use the range? After all, it seems that most anti gun people think there should be more training for those who carry. The range has provided a safe, controlled envirement for firearm enthusiasts, young and old for more years than most of us have been alive.

Rant Over....

19-year-old accused of robbery to face jury trial this spring; woman testifies about violent ordeal


"Afterward prosecutor David Melton moved to drop the charge of possession of a gun by a convicted felon, which was originally filed against Sanders."

What good will more gun laws do if they don't enforce what is on the books already. SMH

East Ninth Project committee discusses updates to design plan; parking a concern

Does Shelton not realize that there are some residents that only have the option of parking on 9th St? Maybe not in large numbers but their are some. I don't think it's the best neighborhood to park far away and walk to your home at night.

City sends proposal for shooting range near school back to planning commission

If you have a conceal & carry permit, you do not have to have your firearm locked in a container in a school zone. I'm betting half, if not more, of people that use the range at the community building have one.
