Local Gun Restrictions Banned in Kansas
:D

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas lawmakers on Friday overrode the governor's veto of a bill preventing city governments from imposing additional restrictions on people carrying concealed guns.

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."

I think it's clear where the threat is coming from.

Good news!

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

If Kansas' legislature isn't competent to pass a state preemption law without posing "new threats to public safety" it needs to move to New York, New Jersey, Illinois, California, Maryland, Ohio, Delaware, or Wisconsin.
