Kansans Eligible To Apply For Concealed Carry
Though no concealed carry permits will be issued in Kansas until January 1, 2007, applications for the permits, authorized by a law recently passed in the Sunflower State, legally could be filed as of July 1.
The Wichita Eagle quotes Sedgwick County sheriff Gary Steed as estimating that 25,000 permits will be filed statewide. Information on the law, as well as application forms, is posted on the attorney general’s Web site. Don Holman, owner of the Bullet Stop, anticipates in a spike in sales, similar to the 30 percent rise he saw when the legislature passed the law by overriding Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’s veto.

"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
They have not worked out all the bugs yet. When they passed the law the Topeka Capital Journal figured that between 20,000 and 40,000 people would apply, maybe we can drop below a C- on the Brady grading scale now.

Look out for a flood of new CombatCarry members from Kansas.

No, I will NOT be moving back to Kansas because of this (I was born and raised in Wichita and escaped the PTRK* almost 4 years ago)
They'd have to allow all the same NFA goodies that Colorado does AND grow some mountains before I'll consider returning.
That and replace Pravda of the Plains (the Wichita Eagle) with something less leftist (I've been spoiled by the libertarian owned paper The Gazette here in the Springs)

Congrats Kansas folks, everyone get your apps in, although it sure is a long time until Jan. 1. O well show the gov. why the legislature overrode her veto!
Good start for Kansas. I may consider travel through the state.
Yeah, I may not have to travel around your state anymore.
I hope there is a good uptake on app's and that restrictions will not be excessive.
This is a long overdue move (ya hear that, MD, IL and WI !!)
