Concealed Carry Gun Law Passes in Kansas

From Lawrence Journal-World:

. . . news that the state of Kansas has approved a concealed carry law that would allow law-abiding citizens to carry guns after attending training and paying a fee.

The bill had been vetoed by Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, but both houses of the Kansas legislature overrode the veto.

As the article notes:
The override ended years of political wrangling. Gov. Bill Graves vetoed concealed carry in 1997, and Sebelius in 2004.

This time, however, the veto didn’t stick.

[State Senate sponsor Phil] Journey said he thought that was because concealed carry had a track record of working in nearly every other state in the nation. Only Illinois, Nebraska and Wisconsin won’t allow residents to carry hidden guns.
Look for this to be an issue which costs the reflexively liberal Wisconsin Governor Doyle some votes in November.

There are quite a lot of those issues now.
