KANSAS PASSES "SHALL-ISSUE" RIGHT-TO-CARRY!

 

On Thursday, Governor Sebelius' (D) veto of NRA-backed Right-to-Carry legislation, Senate Bill 418, "The Personal and Family Protection Act," was overridden!

 

"After 12 years, it took a collective, bi-partisan effort to win this fight," NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox declared.  Kansas now joins 38 other states that respect the Right-to-Carry and allow their citizens to carry a firearm for personal protection. 

 

The Kansas State Senate voted 30 to 10 to override Governor Sebelius' veto of the Right-to-Carry legislation.  Less than a day later, the Kansas House of Representatives voted 91 to 33 to sustain the override.

Cox continued, "We want to recognize the steadfast support of several state leaders.  Without their hard work, Kansans would still be deprived of this valuable law.  Senator Phil Journey (R-26), Representative Candy Ruff (D-40), and Representative Gary Hayzlett (R-122), worked tirelessly on this measure and we thank them."

"As always, we appreciate the commitment and participation of our members in Kansas for helping pass this legislation and helping override the Governor's veto of this law that will serve to protect law-abiding Kansans and their families," concluded Cox.

I guess Kansas' "red state" roots are finally showing.  Can't believe it took 12 years to pass!!

12 years... could be worse.  I don't have any stats, but even six years for a bill to pass in not that bad.  My state house is only in session on average for four months out of the year, thank God! 

 

What people need to understand is that with CCW, the chiefs of police no longer have a monopoly on who is an armed guard and the kick backs that that brings!
