Permitless Conceal Carry Passes House

Associated Press - March 25, 2015 6:58 pm

The Kansas House has approved a bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed firearms without a permit.

The vote Wednesday was 85-39. The bill passed by a healthy margin even though some members have misgivings that the state would no longer require training to carry concealed.

The Senate passed the measure last month, but the House made a technical change in committee that senators have to review.

The measure is expected to go eventually to GOP Gov. Sam Brownback. The National Rifle Association says Kansas would become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere within its borders.

The House also voted 100-24 to pass a bill prohibiting cities and counties from imposing special fees and taxes on guns or gun sales.

GREEEAATTTTT ! Now bubba and his toothless buddies can stuff a handgun down their pants and walk the streets thinking they know everything about “packin”. I guess hittin 5 out of 6 beer cans is all the training some people need. Me, on the other hand, will still renew my permit and take a refresher coarse and try to be a responsible gun owner.

That’s a real smart thing to pass! (rolls eyes) How about doing something useful for the 1 in 5 children who go to bed without dinner right here in our country, city, town, neighborhoods? Those children are all around us! Instead you waste OUR tax dollars passing crap like this, and you reduce the amount spent on their education thus further keeping them in poverty which is a hopeless situation, and then putting concealed weapons in the hands of people mostly around them at the worse possible time! That being when there are so many poor and desperate! Wake up people! Our government is creating a permanent class of working poor, and this conceal is “okay” for anyone idea is a sure fire way to reduce the population of more poor and disadvantaged adults and children. ( no pun intended). The saddest thing is more and more of these children in OUR home land are being denied the right to be fed, receive medication, shelter, protected, and educated at a alarming rate and now the clowns in their neighborhoods are packing guns without training and no permit. Yep, they’re trying to depopulate the planet starting with the more vulnerable by age or IQ. The government is suppose to work for us, not against us! “Those who have the ability, have the responsibility to throw out such government and start anew”. That’s written in OUR constitution! Educated yourselves and stand up for what’s right for all people, not just what effects you! This is EXACTLY how Germany starting in the late 1930’s!
