Permitless Carry Divides Gun Supporters

Gun rights advocates in Kansas are divided on a bill that would allow people to carry a concealed gun without a permit.
If the bill passes, people will also be able to carry a concealed gun without the training that a permit requires. The bill will not extend to anyone under 21, unless they are on their own property.
Some gun supporters say that critics are just looking for something to critique, and that it will give added protection to people who use guns wisely. Other advocates have misgivings about the section of the bill that eliminates training.
The bill was introduced by republican Sen. Terry Bruce after three years of research to make sure it would stand up to the scrutiny of the courts and the public. Bruce says he has received more emails of support than not for the bill.
