Shades of Rundle.

Off topic - what's he up to now?

Kansans no longer required to have concealed carry permit, but could still benefit from training

Guns are not part of my lexicon, and I have no dog in this fight, but it is hard to believe training is not mandated. Build a compound full of guns if you like, but learn the difference between the barrel and grip first.

Sensible and intelligent comment.

Thanks for raising the bar Clara.

It was so low others were tripping over it.

Jury finds Martin Miller guilty of first-degree murder in retrial

Went to school with this guy. Never expected anything this criminal in nature, but at the end of the day, can't say I am surprised. Manipulative and scheming person. God bless the children.

Kansas Senate approves concealed carry of guns without training or permit

Most 'gun nuts' I know advocate training. They are some of the most responsible folks around. Not part of my lexicon, but they respect the 'tools' of the trade. A'la American Sniper.

Before conceal and carry, a license has to be obtained to purchase a gun - correct? If so, what controls are in place for a Kansas gun purchase?

Kansas Senate approves concealed carry of guns without training or permit

I have no dog in this fight. If folks want to own guns, I have no issue with that. I have several myself, but they are stored away, and I might go target shooting once a year if my hucklebuck relatives have a family reunion. Kinda like fishing, fun when I do it, but 10 years could pass and I wouldn't miss it.

What blows my mind is that the NRA does not have an issue with no training. No one should handle a gun without a hunter safety course or equivalent. Unless I am missing the details, no training is required, correct? If true, not a good idea.

Compton purchases former Borders Bookstore site; Incumbents, Rasmussen leading the pack in City Commission fundraising

So you are saying we don't need a grocery store downtown? What do others say? I assume some demand is there based on some market study.

Personally I am ambivalent. but assume some demographic is pushing for it. Is there enough of them to bring in an investor to meed the demand? Or projected demand?

Otherwise 11th, or Borders should spend their capital on ventures with a better predicted rate of return.

But it still sounds like some need will go unmet, from 19th and Mass, north to some far north Lawrence boundary way past the river - perhaps the service stop on I-70? Where do these people get their dry goods, oats and tact? And some hard candy for the kids for the long winter?
