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

So if rights can be restricted, just like privileges (driving), then how is the analogy a false equivalency? What's wrong with requiring training to carry? That seems like it would be a restriction on the right and totally allowable according to what you are saying. If it is an unrestricted right then I should be able to carry concealed in any and all public buildings, not just some.

Kansas authorizes $1 billion in bonds for pension system

I'd imagine it would be based on the difference between what the interest rate the bonds get issued and sold at (which is capped at 5% according to this http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/0...) versus the 7% average annual return KPERS has earned on its investments over the last 10 years (which is according to this http://www.kpers.org/reports/Quarterl...). The idea would be the state is getting a spread of a 2% annual return on 1 billion dollars, which is $20 million a year. Over the course of 30 years, that is $600 million, assuming KPERS is able to continue a 7% average return over the next 30 years. Could it be a bit dangerous to assume this? Sure. But people getting way worked up about it should maybe look at all the facts before passing judgement & yelling about how OUTRAGED they are.

On August 4, 2008, the Fourth Circuit upheld as constitutional the prohibition of possession of a concealed weapon without a permit. Please explain how that is not a violation of rights under your definition.

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

why am I regulated against owning silencers and assault weapons without getting special permit then? Why is a special permit required if it is a constitutional right that I be able to own and carry the same weaponry as the government?

shouldn't all those wanting to carry without training be part of a "well regulated militia" then? I would think any WELL regulated militia would at least require basic safety training.

Former Ramada Inn property at Sixth and Iowa to be razed for redevelopment; announcement expected soon on new tenant for BTBC

There's been a sign up at the Ramada/EconoLodge/whatever its most recent name was for over a year saying that the Fiddle Leaf Cafe was closed & currently undergoing renovations. Have they relocated elsewhere or have plans to? Did the guy retire that ran it? I only found out about it 6 months before that sign went up and it was far and away the best breakfast I had ever had.
