Kansas attorney general joins NRA, 21 other states in challenge of federal handgun restriction

Oh and I am a responsible gun owner. I own a SKS, Glock 23, Mossberg 500, Ruger 10-22 and Ruger Mark III. None of these are meant for hunting.

All of these were purchased legally (with a quick and easy background check) and are kept safely locked away from children, curious guests, babysitters and thieves. The Glock is in a SpeedVault where it is readily available if needed. The rest are safely locked in an upright gun safe.

I don't deny anyone's right to own a gun, but a little common sense would go a long way toward reducing the number of gun deaths in here in the U.S.

Kansas attorney general joins NRA, 21 other states in challenge of federal handgun restriction

So instead of closing the gun show loophole, the gun lobby's (and their bought and paid for lackyes) want to make it legal for 18 to 20 year olds to purchase handguns?

Under their argument, they also want to legalize alcohol for this group as well as (in states where it is legal) marijuana?

What the hell is wrong with people? Can't we have some common sense gun control:

1. Everyone purchasing a gun is required to have a background check.
2. Gun owners should be held accountable for crimes or "accidents" that hurt people when their guns are left unattended, unlocked and/or loaded.
3. Only allow transfers at federally licensed gun dealers or police stations. Want to sell your neighbor a gun? Go to the police station and fill out the paperwork.

We require cars to be registered, why not guns? And before you bring up the 2nd Amendment, put on your reading glasses it says "WELL REGULATED" right in the constitution.

I don't deny your right to own a weapon if you are not a felon or mentally unstable. I do deny your right to sell it willy-nilly to the first felon that responds to your Craigslist post.

Editorial: Selling higher ed

Don't folks see that the current administration is Libertarian with a strong bias toward social control?

We are getting all of the down sides of libertarian policy ( cuts to public services, cuts to education, flattened tax structure) and all of the down sides of social conservatism ( continued drug war, rejection of science, attacks on reproductive rights, attacks on immigrants, attacks on voting rights )

You'd never hire a CEO that didn't believe in the company. Why would you elect a governor who doesn't believe in government?

KU planning to launch 15 new online programs over 5 years under new deal with startup company

Making my degree less valuable through online learning. Great.

Also: I am shocked to find that KU is working with an Illinoise based start up.

Why? Because KU has failed in every way possible at empowering and enabling Kansas based start ups.

KU hasn't spawned a single widely identifiable technology company. What a joke.

I was not saying it is right, I was eviscerating your ridiculous statement by pointing out some facts.

Yep - The military has a substantially higher incidence of sexual assaults per-capita than the civilian population at large.

The military is an important and honorable institution, but it needs to start putting offenders in Leavenworth instead of just discharging them with a demerit on the offender's record.
