Kansas becomes safer with concealed carry law



Kansas is about to become a much safer place to live and do business since Governor Sam Brownback signed a concealed carry law.

The new law, which kicks in July 1, makes Kansas the sixth state to allow “constitutional carry.” It will allow Kansans 21 and older to carry concealed firearms regardless of whether they have obtained a permit. Training still will be required for anyone who wants to carry a concealed gun in the 36 states that accept Kansas permits.

Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, a Wichita Democrat, said she has concerns about safety, noting that law enforcement officials raised concerns about the lack of training. “That’s a major responsibility to carry a gun, whether it’s concealed or not. And it’s scary,” Faust-Goudeau said. “I predict from the legislation that — and it’s going to go quick, it’s going to be July 1 — we’re going to see some accidents, possibly deaths.”

predict if we see a single person misuse a gun in Kansas, we will immediately see pressure put on the legislature to cancel the law. Guns are like cars; they can be used for good or bad purposes. Sometimes people get injured or die in car accidents, but we accept that because of the greater good provided by the use of cars. People can use guns to hurt people, but people can also use guns to save peoples' lives.

There are background checks and training required to get a gun license. But still, no system is perfect, and one crazy person may go off with a gun and shoot people. But a couple of things to note here:

1) The law doesn't expand the pool of people who may carry guns, it just expands where they may carry their guns.

2) If a crazy person takes a gun and starts shooting people, after July 1st, there's a good chance that law abiding citizens can shoot back. Massacres occur in almost every country in the Western world except Israel, because in Israel, a substantial portion of the population carries guns. A crazed gunman might be able to kill one or two people, but if the population is law abiding, a population carries guns makes every one safer. The police can't be everywhere at once and by the time they arrive, a gun crazed maniac can massacre a bunch of unarmed citizens. That's why we're actually safer with an armed citizenry.

For example if someone pulls a gun on a college campus and starts shooting, and you don't have a gun, you may think you're a goner. But if even 10% of the students on campus have been legally trained and licensed to carry a firearm, and have the weapons on them, a massacre can be averted. You can be protected simply because some of your fellow citizens decided to exercise their constitutional rights to defend not just themselves but you as well.

3) Furthermore, criminals will think twice about committing armed robberies and murder and assault if the know that some fraction of the law abiding population is armed. And the great thing about concealed carry is you never know who might be carrying a weapon. Criminals hate uncertainty so in a concealed carry population they can be deterred even if their victim isn't actually carrying a gun.

But this goes against the concept of total state control that the Left prefers. The only decision they want you to have is birth control, abortion, and lately so-called sex change operations (actually mutilations). I prefer having all my constitutional freedo

Mike Pence wimps out on Religious Freedom Act


Mike Pence was on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos, with a dreamy smile which made him look like he still high on antipsychotic drugs, repeatedly asked Pence if the recently passed Religious Freedom Act would enable a baker or a florist to refuse to participate in a gay wedding, and Pence refused to answer, simply repeating, over and over, that the act promoted religious freedom, and that President Obama had once supported a similar law, without describing what the law does. His dry, abstract, and very evasive answers to a simple question were very unflattering both to him and the conservative movement. It looked as if Pence were afraid of defending the very law he had signed.
