KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Reuters) - Kansas residents will be allowed to carry concealed weapons in the state without training or a permit starting in July under a bill signed into law on Thursday by Governor Sam Brownback.
Brownback, a Republican, said the new law will protect the rights of gun owners, while opponents said the measure poses safety risks.
"Responsible gun ownership – for protection and sport – is a right inherent in our Constitution," Brownback said in a statement.
OPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas is poised to join a handful of other states that allow their residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit after the Legislature gave final approval Wednesday to a bill backed by the National Rifle Association.
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Reuters) - Kansas residents would be allowed to carry concealed weapons without permits under a proposed measure endorsed by a majority of state senators, the bill's author said on Thursday.
Kansas would join Alaska, Vermont, Wyoming and Arizona as states that allow residents to carry concealed weapons statewide without a permit, according to the National Rifle Association, which supports such legislation.
The CIA should be abolished.
After a trial run of 67 years, the agency has proven a sorcerer’s apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind secrecy in the belief that the rest of us are too stupid or naive to judge what risks to accept to preserve liberty and the rule of law. The CIA has made Americans less safe.
My Comment: After the CIA is abolished, its HQ, named after long-time spook/covert operative and former President, George H. W. Bush, should be re-purposed as the "George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush Memorial to Crimes Against Humanity Committed Under the Cover of Secrecy in the Name of National Security and National Repository/Research Center for all Formerly-Classified Documents." There, all the formerly-classified documents of our now-but-hopefully-not-forever criminal government will be made publicly available in unredacted form for ALL to peruse at their leisure, without fear of covert murder squads or other illicit means once deployed to bury the truth.
Wrote this rhyme last night while watching my girlfriend frett and fritter
I'm really tired
Of Christmas I think
It makes weary
I think it stinks
It's a profligate orgy
Of avarice and greed
For piles of shit
We don't really need
A horrible waste
Of paper and tape
From this gluttonous frenzy
I'd like to escape
But I feel like a scrooge
I feel like a lout
I could go get some fins
And pass them all out
To beggars and bums
And indigent sorts
They could go to the store
And get em a snort
Then maybe I'll feel
Some Christmas cheer
Helping folks with a need
When I was a kid I sometimes worried there might not be any baseball in heaven. My favorite team was the piteous Yankees of the Horace Clarke era. A few years after reaching the conclusion I'd never play CF for the Yankees, George Steinbrenner bought the Yankees from CBS. That was when he went out and bought Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, Lou Pinella, Craig Nettles, every good Royal, and etc... I suppose that was the end of my youth. I don't hate anyone that plays for the Yankees but truly despise the institution all of the way down to the very origin of the term "Yankee"
Question: What does the Film OUTBREAK, Kansas City, KS, Reston, VA, USAMRIID BioWarfare Lab, Ft. Detrick & Ebola have in Common?Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Sun, 10/05/2014 - 17:39
When neighbors went trick-or-treating at Terry Lee Loewen’s house in Wichita last Halloween, they saw a quiet, unobtrusive, “normal” man. Two months later, federal authorities said they’d seen through the disguise and found a jihadist hiding in the suburbs.
Some interesting things going on in Kansas senate race. Independent candidate Greg Orman had such popularity that the democrat dropped out (and republicans unsuccessfully tried to KEEP THE DEMOCRAT ON THE TICKET)....
I'd really like to watch the results unfold live as it happens, but will such coverage be available on any U.S. TV channel or online?
Here's hoping that Scotland votes YES for independence on the 18th!
Tonight on the idiot box they were blathering about the new Kansas open carry law. It was skewed in the direction of "Oh me oh my" with the folks they chose to interview. They were also having a text poll for listeners and kept announcing the results were coming up next. The results were never announced. Guess KMBC didn't like the results. Anyhow, I only watch this pablum when at my girl friends house. She has to have it.
Had a friend from work die and I am going to miss him for awhile. Wrote this poem and read it at his funeral yesterday. I was the lone white boy in the crowd and was a tad nervous. Not for long though as the preacher, one lady in the choir, and all of the folks. They could bring it!
Me and Reggie
Me and Reggie hatched a plan
To toss around the apple
We skipped our lunch and went out back
away from all the hassles
I saw that he could bring it
and make it break a bit
I saw that he, still had some stuff
He hadn't lost his zip
There is nothing like a baseball
Was reading the Telegraph article linked from LRC tonight on spotting the signs that you are getting old and had to go somewhere to comment.
While watching an episode of Gilligans Island on ME TV awhile back it was suddenly apparent that Mrs Howl didn't look like an old lady anymore.
