Concealed Carry And Other Popular Bills Vetoed by Liberal Kansas Governor

By vetoing a bill expanding concealed carry and other popular bills Kansas Governor Kelly proves she’s still connected to her liberal NY beginnings

Published

HB 2058 was passed by the Kansas legislature by a wide margin. The bill created reciprocity for CCW permits from other jurisdictions and a new class of concealed carry permits for 18-20-year-olds, in addition to other provisions. Democrat Kansas Governor Laura Kelly vetoed it, saying that dropping the concealed carry age from 21-18 would put more guns on school campuses.

The vote on HB 2058 was 80-43 in the Kansas State House and 30-8 in the State Senate to approve the bill.

Providing reciprocity for licenses to carry concealed handguns and creating a new class of concealed carry license for individuals 18 to 20 years of age, and creating the Kansas protection of firearm rights act to restore the right to possess a firearm upon expungement of certain convictions.

The bill specifies a valid license or permit to carry a concealed firearm issued by another jurisdiction is recognized in Kansas while such permit or license holder is not a Kansas resident.

The bill provides valid licenses or permits issued by another jurisdiction entitle the lawful holder only to carry concealed handguns as defined in Kansas law, and it requires such persons to act in accordance with Kansas laws while carrying a concealed handgun in the state.

The bill also states criminal provisions in continuing law prohibiting the carrying of a concealed firearm by persons under age 21 do not apply to residents of another state who are less than 21 years of age and lawfully carrying a concealed firearm pursuant to a recognized out-of-state license.

In vetoing the bill, Governor Kelly (a Democrat) said:

“We can respect and defend the rights of Kansas gun owners while also taking effective steps to keep our children and families safe. Legislation that allows more guns on campus is neither safe nor effective, and it will drive prospective students away from our schools,”

State Representative Stephen Owens, a Republican, responded.

“It’s very disappointing to me that the governor doesn’t recognize that it’s not licensed holders that are committing crimes,” said

“This promotes getting the training, this promotes getting the license, so I just don’t understand why anybody would stand in the way of allowing that to occur,” Owens said.

HB 2058 wasn’t the only bill vetoed by Governor Kelly – she also vetoed an election integrity bill. One that would have banned biological male transgender athletes from competing in women’s sports and one that would have allowed license plates with the Gadsden flag.

The Republican president of the Senate, Ty Masterson, accused the Governor of placating the “hard left.”

“It’s disappointing that the governor has decided to use her veto pen to placate the hard left rather than support mainstream policies supported by most Kansans,” Masterson said. “Republicans will respond to the governor’s veto-a-rama with a veto-override-a-rama when we return in May.”

Kansas is a heavily red state. The GOP dominates both houses of the state legislature. Both U.S. Senators and three of the state’s four House members are Republicans. The party dominates voter registration. .A NY-born liberal, Governor Kelly is an anomaly, and her extreme leftist positions will be remembered when she runs for re-election in 2022. According to fivethirtyeight.com, governor Kelly is arguably the most endangered incumbent governor running in 2022.

Biden’s ‘Day of Prayer’ Remarks Never Mentioned God, But It DID Talk of ‘Racial Justice’ and ‘Climate Change’

Devout Catholic….

Joe Biden put out his first presidential proclamation for the National Day of Prayer, but it seems he forgot to mention anything about God, or religion… well, except for the left’s religions of climate change and racial justice. Biden issued his proclamation on Thursday to supposedly address the power of prayer. But instead of an ode to God, Christianity or even religion in general, Biden paid homage to the left’s fake religions and ignored real religions. “Throughout our history, Americans of many religions and belief systems have turned to prayer for strength, hope, and guidance,” Biden’s proclamation began. “Prayer has nourished countless souls and powered moral movements — including essential fights against racial injustice, child labor, and infringement on the rights of disabled Americans. Prayer is also a daily practice for many, whether it is to ask for help or strength, or to give thanks over blessings bestowed.” Biden added that the First Amendment protects “the rights of free speech and religious liberty,” which protects the right of all Americans to pray. “These freedoms have helped us to create and sustain a Nation of remarkable religious vitality and diversity across the generations,” the proclamation continued. Celebrating the “healing balm of prayer,” Biden added, “As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic, to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change — Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead.” Biden did not mention the words God, Jesus, or any specific religious concepts other than the general point of “prayer.” This is in stark contrast to every president before him. Even Barack Obama mentioned God. Check…

Biden’s Jobs Report Crashes to Worst Miss in History, Then He Blames Trump

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump.

The latest jobs report is the worst miss of estimated new jobs creation in history, and Joe Biden is desperately trying to blame Trump even as he claims nothing is wrong at all. Economists had predicted almost a million new jobs for this past period, but on Friday Biden’s latest report came in at only 266,000 new jobs. This is a huge gap, and the worst miss of jobs predictions in history. Not only did Biden’s numbers come in at a massive miss of the expected new jobs, but the unemployment rate actually went up to 6.1%. https://twitter.com/axios/status/1390648052097163271 One of Biden’s problems us that the Democrats keep handing out free cash to the unemployed which has convinced them that they don’t even need to go look for a job. https://twitter.com/cvpayne/status/1390648212864839684 Not only was this latest period a big miss, but the last one was also downgraded from the original estimate of 916,000 down to 770,000. When the news broke, Biden initially said everything was juuuust fine. “There is more evidence that our economy is moving in the right direction, but it’s clear we have a long way to go,” Biden said on Friday. But on the other hand, he tried to blame Trump, saying, “When we came in, we inherited a year of profound economic crisis and mismanagement on the virus.” Lies. The fact is, the report showed unemployment rose in April for the first time since April 2020, when the economic fallout from the coronavirus pandemic first hit the nation.
