I've mention a few times year that Indiana has even looser gun laws than Texas. Well, Kansas now has both of us beat:
That makes Kanas the sixth state to allow "constitutional carry," based on the premise that you shouldn't need a permission slip from the government for something that's a constitutional right. I don't need a permit to exercise my freedom of speech, and we don't need government approval to exercise our religious rights. (Of course if we claim a tax exemption, the government gets to tell us if we're a real church or not, which has always seemed a little off to me, but let's save that for another day).
The permit-free carry doesn't bother me much, but I'm a little bothered by the lack of training (as I am about the same lack here). The most troubling part of the law is that it affects onl;y those 21 and older. Doesn't make much sense to let kids enlist at 18 and risk their lives (while carrying guns) but not consider them adult enough for concealed carry.
Oh, and the usual anti-gun crowd is raising all the usual anti-gun objections, so let's just pretend I responded with the usual reasons why they'r wrong.
