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."

We welcome Kansas back into the Constitutional fold with a hearty, Job Well Done. Interesting that one of the state leaders responsible for overriding the Witch of the Midwest's veto was a Democrat, and thank you, Ms. Ruff. In other news...

On March 16, Representative Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) introduced H.R. 5005, the "Firearms Corrections and Improvements Act," which would make a variety of technical changes to federal firearm laws. The bill would roll back unnecessary restrictions, correct errors, and codify longstanding congressional policies in the arena of firearms laws.
Among its provisions, H.R. 5005 would: permanently ban taxes or "user fees" on background checks by the federal instant check system--fees that Congress has prohibited in annual appropriations riders since 1998; permanently ban creation of a centralized electronic index of dealers' records--a threat to gun owners' privacy that Congress has barred through appropriations riders for a decade; codify limits on disclosure of trace records--which Congress has already limited through a series of appropriations riders over the past few years, out of concern for gun owners' privacy and the confidentiality of law enforcement records; and repeal of obsolete language from the Brady Act's "interim" waiting period provisions, that expired in 1998.
On March 28, the U.S. House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security will hold a Legislative Hearing on H.R. 5005, and the third Oversight Hearing of The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE).
Gun-ban proponent, and Violence Policy Center (VPC) staffer, Kristen Rand, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (R), will testify at the hearings. Bloomberg, in his continuing quest to inflict New York City-style gun laws on the rest of the nation, will be testifying against H.R. 5005. Rand, whose organization has long called for a total ban on handgun ownership by law-abiding Americans, will testify, no doubt, in support of BATFE.
Those interested in watching the hearing online may do so at http://www.ilaalerts.org/UM/T.asp?A1.2.194.10.876583. The hearing is scheduled to begin at approximately 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 28.
Please be sure to contact your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121, and urge him or her to cosponsor and support H.R. 5005, the "Firearms Corrections and Improvements Act!"

Among many other things, the "fee" for accessing the Insta-Check System has made me angry for quite some time now. It's not a big deal money-wise, but $5 just to make a 2 minute phone call that should be part of doing business is objectionable. The call is toll-free, and if an owner is too busy to do it without charging then he's doing just fine. Ever see these guys standing around trying to stay awake? I'm aware that a lot of smaller gunshops are not exactly thriving institutions, but add the $5 on to the price of the gun and I'll gladly pay it. Tell me that you are, in essence, breaking the law and charging for something that Congress has said shall be free is wrong, and usery.

I'll be keeping close tabs on what is sure to be a laugh riot as Mayor Bloomberg tosses his hilarious 2-cents into the fray along with the usual moonbats extraordinaire who love the very thought of being a victim, and want all of us to join with them in sacrificing our families to sate the wolves.

Countless lives have been lost since they began the no-defense-is-the-best-defense strategems. People who could and normally would fight back, died in droves while the animals raped and killed the innocent all because it's far better to "Just let them have what they want and they'll leave you alone."

Times are changing for the better, and it is the duty of all of us to send these professional victims back to California or New York or Nebraska or Massachusetts or New Jersey or Wisconsin and leave the problems of surviving in the real world to real people.

PS: Don't be surprised if the Wicked Witch convinces the more cuddly-wuddly municipalities to break the law, as Iowa does, and create May-Issue, or flat out No-Issue enclaves within the ever-frightened state of Kansas. I can't see her Governess taking this one lying down. Come to think of it, from the looks of her it doesn't appear she does much of anything lying down.

Moonbats like to kneel.
