Kobach to have clay-shooting fundraiser


A clay-shooting fundraiser for the re-election campaign of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is scheduled for Oct. 12.

Kobach also will discuss Second Amendment rights at the event, which will be held at the Ravenwood Lodge in Topeka.

Participation options run from $25 to $1,000.

Kobach, a Republican, is running in 2014 for his second four-year term as secretary of state.

Former Republican state Sen. Jean Schodorf of Wichita, who has switched to the Democratic Party, has announced that she will seek the Democratic nomination. Mission Hills businessman Randy Rolston, a Democrat, has already filed to run in the race.

That was my thought, too! No wonder he's affiliated with the party who is so against background checks!

You know they'd have passed a clean CR if that were the case.

another blatant attempt at courting NRA $$$ to fund his political ambitions...I differentiate between those who support the 2nd Amendment (which is most of us) and those who support the gun manufacturers and their political lobbying organization, the NRA.. This activity is an overt attempt by him to thumb his nose at those who support reasonable gun safety, along w other measures such as mental health funding. Wouldn't it be great if he used the money raised from this event to fund the empty coffers of community mental health centers?

You people act like this type of fundraiser is unusual. Get a life.

Will they using semi-automatic rifles?

Before some of you go postal, I grew up with guns in west central Kansas. Don't get the need for lack of background checks and all this b.s. the NRA is preaching. The people we hunted with out there, they weren't like that long ago and they still aren't. Don't know who they are but they certainly are a bunch of blathering idiots.

Guess you've heard of the sport of shooting clays despite growing up with guns. Guess none of them were shotguns.

One can only hope.

This is a joke. I am not advocating violence against any group or individual. Please do not contact my employer and demand that I be fired. :)

I've attended a Kobach fundraiser, very well worth the time and money. Plus it was very enjoyable.

Hope he is not planning to use smokeless powder in that old Damascus steel double barrel he is planning on using.

Breaking clay makes my day but I'll pass on this one, for sure. Rabbit, Pyrodex for sure.
