Amended bill would allow owners
to have loaded handgun in vehicle
regardless of conceal-carry permit

Wichita Eagle [KS], by Bryan Lowry

Kansas gun owners would be able to carry a loaded handgun in cars regardless of whether they have a conceal-carry permit if a bill headed to the House floor becomes law. HB2473 would make gun laws uniform throughout the state by preventing local governments from enacting or enforcing regulations. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Jim Howell, R-Derby, passed without opposition in the Federal and State Affairs Committee on Wednesday. Rep. Michael Houser, R-Columbus, offered an amendment – which also passed without opposition – that would make it legal for all Kansans to carry a loaded handgun inside their automobiles. The rationale is

Vermont, Alaska and Arizona (and I think one other state) have no handgun laws at all for adults. So this is joining a trend...

FL allows carry in a car without a CWP provided the gun is ´encased´ in a holster, the glove box or a console.

I´m surprised that this is even a question in normally sane Kansas.

In my state, your vehicle is considered an extension of your home, and the ´castle doctrine´ applies. You can legally carry whatever firearms you want in it, without permit, permission or licensing, openly or concealed.
You can even carry a concealed weapon on your person, in your vehicle, without Concealed Weapon permit.

(Unfortunately, the moment you exit the vehicle, and take one step away from the door with a concealed weapon, then you do need the license / permit to be ´legal´)

In Texas it´s legal IF you are transporting the gun to your ranch or other outside the city property...and if you are carrying large sums of money and other reasons.s

I always have mine and am always going to my ´ranch´. How can they prove otherwise?

I´m for it.

Only the bad guys (and some cop who´s 5 miles away) are "packin´". Everybody should be packin´. That´s how this country got to where it is. (Even women used to "pack" - derringers)

If the cops ran the carpenters´ union, you would need a permit to buy a hammer at Home Depot.

#6--Unless something has radically changed in the past year or so, you are behind the times. Texas long had an ill-defined "travelling" exception to the handgun laws; some years ago the Lege just gave up and changed the statute to say plainly there is no restriction on having a handgun "on or about your person" while you are in your motor vehicle as long as you are not committing a jailable offense and, oddly, as long as it is not in plain sight. In other words, pretty much what Kansas is proposing here.

What the left cannot accomplish through legislation they try to accomplish through nit-picking regulation.

I will carry my Taurus Judge (410 shotgun pistol) when ever and where ever I please.

I have no criminal record and no malicious intent.

I recall from my martial arts training, a hundred years ago, that with this overwhelming power comes the responsibility to defend the innocent and stand up for the victim.

It´s time for law enforcement to team up with the ´nice´ people and drop their OCD attitude about gun ownership.

I like your attitude, BlueZ. I got the permit, years ago, cost me a weekend and @ $250, and only good for 4 years. It has since expired, and I don´t particularly want to spend either the weekend or the cash again. I mostly avail myself of the laws relating to handguns in one´s car and on one´s property to keep my handgun near to hand. And when I´m out walking the dog at night, I´m not above taking the same advice that one of my customers got from her policeman husband: Just carry the pistol, the cops in this town won´t bother you unless you are a bad guy.

Good choice #10. It has a 5 round cylinder as you know. I load mine with an empty chamber under the hammer(yeah, I know, I´m just old fashioned)first round, shot shell, next two rounds, .45LC, last round shot shell. Just my personal preference. Incidentally, I was born and raised on a ranch in Kansas. Since I was a high school freshman, I have carried a loaded pistola in my glove box, even to school and back. Originally it was for four legged varmints, in recent years it´s for the two legged variety which are becoming more numerous and are a lot more dangerous.

One year after opening, South Wind

South Wind Women’s Center says it provided about 1,200 abortions in its first year. The center opened a year ago in the same building where Wichita doctor George Tiller provided abortions before Scott Roeder murdered him in church in 2009. No clinic offered abortions in Wichita after Tiller died until South Wind opened. South Wind said it has seen a total of about 1,500 patients for reproductive care, including abortions up to 14 weeks. Patients have come from across the state and from a few other states, such as Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. Patient numbers are “right in line with our projections,” said Julie

Expect debate over health care
in Kansas to continue

Kansas Republican lawmakers have advanced a bill aimed at separating Kansas from the federal Affordable Care Act. And one to indefinitely stop Kansas from expanding Medicaid under the act. And one to require background checks for counselors who help consumers navigate the online insurance marketplace. They have held hearings about lawsuits against the health care act and its impact on businesses. And they use “Obamacare” as shorthand to explain their opposition to unrelated issues such as mortgage registration fees or Common Core education standards. Republicans say their intent is to protect Kansans from a flawed law. But Democrats say the GOP is focusing on a

A judge in Wichita has ordered a federal commission to enforce Kansas and Arizona laws requiring documents such as a birth certificate proving citizenship for new voters. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren ordered the Election Assistance Commission to immediately add Kansas- and Arizona-specific instructions to the federal voter registration form. Those instructions will say that new registrants will have to provide documents proving citizenship before they are allowed to vote, as required by state law. For most people, that means either a birth certificate or passport.

Dodge City — It is hard to find anyone who has seen Sen. Pat Roberts here at the red-brick house on a golf course that his voter registration lists as his home. Across town at the Inn Pancake House on Wyatt Earp Boulevard, breakfast regulars say the Republican senator is a virtual stranger. “He calls it home,” said Jerald Miller, a retiree. “But I’ve been here since ’77, and I’ve only seen him twice.” Roberts, 77, went to Congress in 1981 and became a fixture: a member of the elite Alfalfa Club and chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which made him a regular on the Sunday talk shows. His wife became a real estate broker

Germany´s wind and solar power generation came to a standstill in late 2013. More than 23,000 wind turbines ran out of wind and most of the one million photovoltaic systems ran out of sunlight. For a whole week, coal nuclear and gas-powered plants generated an estimated 95 percent of Germany´s electricity. Britain has 3,500 wind turbines, but during a period of extreme cold they produced just 1.8% of UK´s electricity. But, gluttons for punishment, politicians intend building more.

   

 



 
We Need G.M.O. Wheat

THREE crops — corn, soybeans and wheat — account for a vast majority of the value of America’s agricultural crop output. But wheat is different in one important respect. While more than 90 percent of the nation’s corn and soybean acres are now planted with seeds genetically engineered to resist insects, herbicides or both, there is not a single acre of genetically engineered wheat being grown commercially in the United States.[snip]But wheat farmers balked at the potentially higher prices of these new seeds and feared that anti-genetic engineering views held by some of our trading partners would hurt exports.

When Gov. Sam Brownback cried “Look out, Texas, here comes Kansas!” in his 2013 State of the State address, he probably did not mean higher property taxes, relocated minimum-wage jobs and unequal school funding. Yet these problems balance out Texas’ storied economic growth. Brownback wants to eliminate Kansas’ income tax, the single largest share of revenues. This would mean massive changes to school funding, services and property taxes. The impact on economic growth is less clear.With no income tax and a relatively modest sales-tax rate of 6.25 percent, Texas also features some of America’s highest property taxes

The integrity of elections has been a crucial concern of Kansans since the birth of our state. More than any other state, Kansas was born in an atmosphere of rampant voter fraud. Our first territorial legislative election saw 4,908 fraudulent votes cast (mostly by Missourians). In the ensuing years, many Kansans put themselves at great risk to safeguard the integrity of elections. The Kansas (Wyandotte) Constitution, adopted in 1859, provided that every Kansas voter must be a United States citizen to cast a legal ballot. The Kansas Constitution also states that the Kansas Legislature shall provide for “proper proofs,”

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake
