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

Don't read the article or anything...

"Congress found that persons under 21 tend to be relatively irresponsible and can be prone to violent crime, especially when they have easy access to handguns," the court said. The court cited statistics that said of gun homicides, where an offender was identified, 24 percent were committed by 18- to 20-year-olds.

They sound pretty responsible to me...responsible for almost a quarter of gun homicides.

Drug-related home invasions on the rise in Lawrence

Sorry, you've only advocated arming the masses with firearms in almost every single one of your posts, but not so precisely this time. What a great country where people are so possessive of things that petty theft with a firearm is a capital offense. Shouldn't be surprised...apparently so are "sucker punches."

Happy? You probably won't be, but you're more likely to survive.

Drug-related home invasions on the rise in Lawrence

Only a genius would read this article, in which the only deaths were the result of a "victim" arming themselves and shooting first, advocate just the thing that caused two deaths. Maybe just give them the dam$$d computer and everybody can live. Guns don't help situations, they usually just end up in unnecessary death (either the victim or the idiot kid who wants your $500 computer to buy drugs).

Survey shows public skeptical about school testing, Common Core standards

True, the headline should be "misinformed public strongly opinionated about standards they admittedly know very little about."

Come on bootstrappers, put on your boots and learn before you speak. I've never seen boots on a parrot before...

Sounds pretty cheap...maybe if people are so interested in forming an opinion on such things, they should take the responsibility to learn about them first. People love to complain about wasteful spending.
What you're suggesting sounds like a pretty large media campaign. How is spending a large amount of tax dollars to have a government official teach an already opinionated section of the population going to go over? The same government official will also be responsible for explaining to them that this isn't a federal intrusion. I bet that wouldn't meet with any criticism at all, especially since the same group that seems to oppose these standards also appears to be the least educated on a factual basis, and their rhetoric and misinformation is all they care to learn.

Kansas unemployment rate increases for third straight month

How many of those states were given the "shot of adrenaline" we were promised?

Special police detail seeks to curb dangerous behavior among college students

Well that's just not true at all. You can't simply "pack your bags" and show up any more than we happily greet the thousands crossing the Rio Grande. You also do, in fact, need a passport to travel there and have for at least a few years now.

Kansas Board of Regents indicates it will pursue in-depth study of new concealed carry law

I love your "fact" of "hundreds of guns." It seems much more like a supposition. I bet if they did put metal detectors out you would complain about government waste, and that when they didn't find "hundreds of guns that are there illegally," you would find some bs reason why your fears aren't unfounded.

Gun bans have worked great in England and Australia. Maybe we should adopt that policy if you're really worried about your safety. Have you even thought that through?
