Guns coming to a Kansas college campus near you?

Kansas college students, one man is fighting for your right to bear arms on campus. Republican state Rep. Forrest Knox told the Star that he's going to push a bill that would allow students to carry concealed firearms in buildings without security measures like metal detectors or guards.

"My plan is to move that forward," Knox told the Star. "We will revise it somewhat and

try to deal with situations, realistic situations, in public buildings. ... If you deny my right to provide for my own security, then you need to

provide for my security."

I imagine Knox was firing two pistols in the air while saying this, and the Star's copy editors cut the yeehaw!



But the Second Amendment haters on the Board of Regents think it's a bad idea. How could empowering teenagers with their first tastes of freedom be a bad idea?

"Having 18 and 19-year-olds, places where emotions run high and people

like to have a good time, and you add that in with weapons, we don't

think that creates a safer environment, and I don't think most of the

parents would think that creates a safer environment," Regents Chairman

Gary Sherrer told the Star.

Who said binge drinking and guns don't mix?

Last session, the gun lovers in the House supported a similar measure, which was shot down in the Senate.
