    Local Gun Restrictions Banned in Kansas
    Friday, April 27, 2007



    TOPEKA, Kan.— Kansas lawmakers on Friday overrode the governor's veto of a bill preventing city governments from imposing additional restrictions on people carrying concealed guns.[/b]

    It's the second veto by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, a Democrat, to be overridden by the Republican-controlled Legislature since she took office in 2003. Last year, lawmakers overrode her veto of a bill creating the concealed gun law.

    The Senate voted 30-10 to override the veto, three more than the necessary two-thirds majority. On Thursday, the House voted 98-26.

    The bill was a reaction to efforts by some cities to impose their own requirements.

    Supporters said the state should set the requirements for concealed guns, avoiding the possibility of someone unknowingly violating a local ordinance that goes beyond state law.

    State Sen. Phil Journey, who led the override attempt, said local governments enacting their own restrictions "created a crazy patchwork of ordinances."

    When Sebelius vetoed the bill April 13, she said she felt it posed "new threats to public safety."

    This is a good thing as it makes everyone on the same page, no one wants a situation where you are ok in one place and then go a block or two and now you are not ok. Glad to hear that at least there are some Kansans that think.

    I keep praying for a National Concealed Carry or for that matter a National Open carry might be even better, at least under a National carry law the Constitution would finally be upheld.
