    Exclamation Breaking News: Kansas Veto: OVERRIDDEN by Senate!

    Posted on Wed, Mar. 22, 2006
    Senate overrides veto on gun bill
    CARL MANNING
    Associated Press


    TOPEKA, Kan. - Kansas moved closer Wednesday to allowing residents to carry concealed guns after the Senate overrode Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' veto of a gun bill.

    The vote was 30-10, giving supporters of the measure three votes above the two-thirds majority necessary. The House is expected to vote Thursday, and supporters will need 84 votes there.

    Kansas is one of only four states that don't allow some residents to carry hidden weapons.

    If the bill's backers succeed in the House, Sebelius will be the first governor in 12 years to have a veto overridden.

    Sebelius cited opposition from law enforcement officials and business leaders Tuesday in rejecting a bill that would allow U.S. citizens over 21 living in Kansas to obtain four-year permits from their local sheriffs. The legislation still would ban hidden guns in some locations, such as churches, libraries, schools and courthouses.

    But sponsoring Sen. Phil Journey, R-Haysville, said the measure was about giving Kansans the right to defend themselves.

    Illinois, Nebraska and Wisconsin are the only other states that don't allow at least some residents to carry concealed guns. Eight states let law enforcement agencies reject permits for individuals who would otherwise qualify. In 35 states, permits must be issued if all requirements are met. Alaska and Vermont have no prohibitions for carrying concealed weapons.

    Sebelius also vetoed a nearly identical bill in 2004, as did her predecessor, Republican Bill Graves, in 1997.

    YEEEEE HAWWWWWWWW

    Sweet, only one more hurdle to jump! This is where the pressure counts the most, so keep it up on the House members so that Queen Kathleen doesn't change some minds!

    According to posting on another site, none of the Senators "flipped" on the veto override.

    It will take 7 legislators "flipping" in their house for the veto override to fail.

    The legislature is expected to vote on the veto override tomorrow morning.

    Evidently one Senator flipped to the override side. The original Senate vote was 29-11 and the override vote was 30-10. Somebody saw the handwriting on the wall and decided to jump to the winning side. He has the best of both worlds. If the House does not vote to override his real opinion is upheld. If the House does vote to override the is on the right side.

    The Queen will be looking for a new job come election time. It's already in the works to get her out like we did our Gov in Missouri.

    Congrats!

    Looks like you will get your CCW before too long. Glad to see the will of the people of Kansas win out over the narrow-mindedness of one person.
