Kansas revenue projections for next year contributing to even bigger budget hole

Also Marc I am sure you know ks is a net receiver of federal aid. (They pay in less than they get). So if anything people in ny and California should be mad about supporting our welfare state.

Kansas proposal would allow concealed carry with no permit

Others can carry I have no issue with that but I believe the current system is working fine and not onerous I see no reason to change it.

Kansas proposal would allow concealed carry with no permit

If you can afford the firearm and ammo isn't the license and class cost a very small percentage of the outlay?

Kansas proposal would allow concealed carry with no permit

Also there was not this huge concealed carry push in the 1980s when Violent crime actually was an issue. It is now at its lowest levels since the 1970s by far and yet more people fear it and feel they need to be protected even though by all measures they are safer now than in a long time. Good work by the news and NRA to make people believe and fear they are in danger. I agree Philipp I own a gun and have a permit to carry but I do not want to live in a world I feel I have to carry everywhere. Also statistically if I did carry everywhere around here I could my odds of accidentally shooting myself or having my kid shoot themselves is higher than needing to use it to fend off violent crime so I don't often take the risk. the line about not being able to afford to get a permit is a little rich from a government who wants to require voterid rules that require everyone to pay for an id and didn't seem to be too keen to the same argument about those on fixed incomes or elderly being able to afford them.

Democrats sense a chance of defeating Republican Kobach in secretary of state's race

The question still remains to jaf and the others why do we need a get out the info campaign to the people in suspense? Why do we have 20K voters in this state to prevent something that has never been proven here. And even if it did happen I can say it was in single to double digits so why is catching that problem overriding the rights of so many legitimate voters? It just doesn't make sense and will cost the state a lot of money. Of course the ones in suspense are likely democratic voters so I am sure they are rushing to fix it. It seems people are more up in arms, pardon the pun, about permits to carry taking to long to go through than that legitimate people can't vote in this state. 'Merica.
