    Congrats Kansas! We're on the verge of getting open carry here in TX. Would much prefer constitutional carry instead. Maybe this will get the ball rolling.

    So this means anyone can carry a firearm without any legal repercussions, including those with a criminal background, correct?

    Absolutely not. Only those over the age of 21 who are legally allowed to own a handgun will be able to carry concealed in Kansas without a permit. The law does not take effect until it's published in the statute book which will be July 1, 2015.

    So what they have then is restricted Constitutional Carry.

    Unless you have received a State Pardon from your Governor which happens every single day.

    Don't be a whiner! :neener:
    Get on the ball there in SC, and get your own Constitutional carry passed!

    Join the rest of the Civilized States!

    Seriously, the more States that pass Constitutional carry, or permit less carry as some call it, the more other States will consider it, and the harder the anti-gunners will have to work to not look silly.

    Are out-of-staters also allowed to constitutionally carry? The articles that I have read mention only Kansans and "residents."

    Out of stater's can carry concealed if they have a license reciprocal with Kansas. If not, only Open Carry applies

    In this regard, Kansas is similar to Wyoming and Arkansas.

    The only "pure" permit less carry states are the pioneer Vermont (1777) ,Arizona and Alaska.

    But whatever, this is a giant step forward for Kansas. Hats off.

    I wasn't whining. My point is that whenever the issue of permits vs constitutional carry come up pro constitutional carry folk always gravitate to the "shall not be infringed" argument yet for the most part many are okay with infringement of people with a criminal background even though that infringement verbiage isn't in the constitution. It's a pet peeve of mine.

    As for South Carolina adopting constitutional carry, I see legitimate reasons for carry permits. Just like any other topic, there are pros and cons to both sides. I think there are enough pros to carry permits to offset the few cons. Just one man's opinion.

    A good point. Time will tell us. If, within the next decade, we have 35 to 40 "permitless carry" states, that is going to carry the day. If it stalls at 10 or 15 that will became a logger jam and perhaps not continue.

    As always, as the Count of Monte Cristo said in 1838, "Wait and hope". :)

    The Constitution has

    not that much to do with open or concealed carry. It has to do with the politicians that some demented voters put in their state legislatures.

    Oh, for sure . Since 1789, that had been the case. And now the promiscuous varmints in Washington D.C. & State Capitols are are more entrenched then ever.

    Only one thing can make the monumental change to rid us of these incestuous vermin.

    The People, Let us start today.Repeal Direct Election of Senators, Repeal the IRS. Let us get rid of these Progressive 1913 monstrosity's.

    Let us move on to a better world. Immediately. If not sooner. 102 years is more than enough. :evil:

    The prohibition on felons and people charged with certain misdemeanors is a Federal Law not Kansas Law. Nothing the Kansas Legislature can do about it. Speak to your Congressman about getting the 1968 gun control act repealed.

    Or not, since you seem to think that the Government has the right to determine who can carry or not.

    I have never advocated that being a convicted felon should necessarily remove one's gun rights. I firmly believe that if you are convicted of a violent crime and imprisoned, you should be imprisoned as long as you are a danger to society.

    As a matter of practicality, convicted felons don't seem to have a problem getting weapons if they want them.

    And while I support the Permit system as a matter of practicality, I support Constitutional Carry even more strongly.

    You are completely missing my point on the argument for Constitutional carry.
