Kansas has First Use of CCH
Well it happened right here in the Capital City of Topeka Kansas last Friday. Right here where everyone likes to rally behind the anti gun politicians, right here in their own back yard.
Last Friday night an attemped armed robbery went bad when an Oklahoma man with a valid CCW stepped in and stopped the crime. The local paper is doing their best to play it down but the TV stations have aired it and the 2 storys I have seen have been very positive.
Here is a link to the story.
I put this here so everyone can see how fast this has happened. Less than a month and already the new Kansas Law is working. If it should be moved to another place than please move it.

Say it ain't so. Using a stolen gun in a robbery. Wearing on oversized jacket while wearing a red du rag on your head, no, not right. Wonder if he had both sets of his drawers hanging out of his sagged, down to the knee pants. I think it is great!!!! Knew someone was gonna be first, probably in Topeka or Wichita, just happy that it wasn't the GG that got shot. Now maybe some of the anti's will realize that if the BG's dont know who is carrying, they will think twice before showing us how stupid they really are. Probably not. Bet ya the other slug that ran away didn't even know CCW was here and alive. Bet he and other pieces of garbage loike him will think before they try to be a Darwin award winner in the future.
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.

Probably too much to ask for, but ditto on the sentiment.

The first article really puts a positive spin on legal concealed carry. Nice to hear from "the Media".
Sounds like a good shoot, which is a plus. :)

How anyone, even an anti, could read that story and STILL not want us (the law abiding) to be able to LEGALLY carry weapons is beyond me.
But some do....

Topeka Kansas Shooting
Channel 49 had the most positive story:
Concealed carry permit holder shoots suspect
Story by Jesse Fray (Contact)
6:40 p.m. Monday, January 22, 2007
An Oklahoma concealed-carry permit holder thwarted a robbery at a Topeka convenience store Friday night, police said.
Police said 57-year-old Michael Mah shot a 17-year-old suspect who was trying to rob the Phillips 66 at 29th and Randolph, after telling him to drop his weapon. The owner of the store, Dean Yee, told police two men ran inside, when one of them pointed a gun at him and demanded money. Concealed weapons advocates said Mah did the right thing.
“The bad guys … better be careful who they pick on,” said Troy Powell, a retired cop who recently moved here from Texas.
Powell said the shooting is exactly what concealed-carry is intended for.
“The guy was right there on scene and had firsthand knowledge that it was happening,” said Powell. “I think he reacted appropriately and probably he could’ve saved that guy’s life and his own.”
Police said Mah shot the man just once.
“I don’t think any of these people that carry-concealed are wanting to do someone it, they’re just wanting to stop the guy, to keep him from hurting … someone else,” Powell said.
Mah had a concealed carry permit from Oklahoma, one of 22 states from which permit holders can also carry a weapon in Kansas, police said.
Powell said the shooting reaffirms the decision legislators made last year to override the governor’s veto and pass the law.
“This incident, it supports that they’re right,” he said. “Concealed carry is a privilege that citizens should have.”
Police said the man who shot the suspect likely won’t be charged with a crime, since he had a valid permit. But, the final decision will be left up to the district attorney.
The man was one of 10 people injured in shooting’s last Friday.

It's good to know that everything worked out for the better. I am quite happy that Kansas is a safer place now.

We all need to take a moment and thank the "yute" for demonstrating to all his accomplices the dangers of criminal activity in this brave new world.

"The case will now be reviewed by the District Attorney".
We won't know if it has a good ending or not until we learn what he decides to do.
