Kansas universities lack firm plan for concealed guns on campus, making some anxious

I find it hypocritical that we allow 18 year olds to serve in our military and be sent off to foreign lands to fight wars, some for our freedoms and some illegal and serving only those who profit from war and yet say they cannot gamble in a casino, drink in a bar or purchase a semi-automatic pistol or revolver when they flew planes, drove tanks and carried automatic weapons.

It is hypocritical, but what keeps me up at night is not that they can't drink, gamble or own a pistol, but the fact that we are so quick to send these young men and women to fight wars that are unnecessary and in my opinion illegal.

War should be a last resort and only to truly defend our freedoms, not ensure the flow of oil, justify military contracts or nation build.

Now Joe, do you disagree with what I wrote?

Joe so what is your point? That the law didn't change anything since the kids ignore laws?

And, only those 21 and older may carry concealed. Thus, most of the student population is not allowed to carry a concealed weapon.

Opinion: Veteran forced to make shameful choice

Same song and dance. Get some new material.

Pitts is right. We use and abuse our soldiers and discard them when we are done with them.

In our society it is legal to treat patients with pharmaceutical drugs that often have a long list of side effects but a crime to use a plant. Makes no sense.

We need to reform our justice system from one that destroys individuals and families in a zeal to punish, grow agencies and generate revenues into one that protects society while not criminalizing those who can contribute to society.

Our veterans should get all the help and treatment they need before we help other nations. We owe it to them.

Commissioners support new building codes policy, say Kobach did not get special treatment; others not so sure

Policy is not law. Policy may assist in carrying out the law but it cannot change the law. Enforce the law or change it.

Doesn't matter if Kobach got "special treatment." What matters is if he complied with the law.

We do not want our elected officials selectively enforcing laws.

Not going to happen. They still haven't recovered from getting spanked by the Shockers basketball team.

As part of the evil white government why don't you set an example and give back the land that your people stole from the American Indians?
