Letter: Kansas dictators?

Dictatorship? Not hardly. Bad policy and legislation? Most certainly, but it is done by following the rule of law.

You could call it a dictatorship if Brownback was creating law through executive order or just through policy but he isn't. Neither is Kobach. They are going through the legislature as it should be; a legislature elected by the people to represent them.

Lawrence police seek two suspects in Feb. 8 triple shooting; family issues statement

John, you paint a very different portrait of your daughter than one gets from just reading the article. I can only imagine your pain and fear as you wonder where your daughter is and if she is safe.

I trust she is as you described her and hope she comes home safely and soon.

Kansas Senate approves concealed carry of guns without training or permit

Snopes says the ban is true, but not the part about executive order. The issue is the ban and not how it is done.

Kansas Senate approves concealed carry of guns without training or permit

I doubt that people feel like they need the gun fun to go into the business per se, but regardless how safe the business is you don't know when an act of violence may occur in the business, or walking from your car to the business or just sitting in the car.

Crime can and does happen anywhere. Even places of worship are not safe. Don't want to carry a gun then don't.

Clark, can you predict where violent crime will occur? Yes, in some areas the probability of violent crime is higher than others, but violent crime can and does happen everywhere.

Kansas moving toward allowing concealed guns without permit

Police officers are murdered each year in what were believed to be routine traffic stops until the driver or passenger opened fire. Look at what happened in Topeka last year.

It is ludicrous to think police officers shouldn't approach each car as if the driver or passenger were armed.

Don't you read the news? There have been lots of shootouts. Some between the cops and criminals and other times between just criminals.

And if he is a properly trained officer who wants to stay alive he should be assuming that now.
