    Hello from Kansas

    Hello, I'm from southcentral Kansas. I'm an 18-year veteran of the Kansas Department of Corrections. In my younger days (so long ago, it seems), I worked law enforcement as a small town reserve policeman and an LE in the Air Force. So, I'm familiar with guns but by no means am I an expert. Kansas recently passed a conceal carry law and since I've always believed a person should have the right to defend themselves and others, I decided to get a permit. I plan on taking the class in April and apply for a permit soon after. In the meantime, I figured I'd get educated on what all that entails, including the law, responsibilities, and the types of weapons that are suitable. So here I am.

    Welcome from Junction City. Come on in and sit a spell.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    Welcome from North Central Arkansas.
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!
