Kansas state Rep. Lance Kinzer may not be willing to do anything about Kansas' unconstitutional laws about gay sex, but he sure as hell wants to do something about adult businesses.
Kinzer is pushing the so-called "Community Defense Act," a bill to protect Kansans from strip clubs and adult stores. The bill passed the House Wednesday on a 91-28 vote, according to the Associated Press. It's pretty much the same crap that conservative Republican lawmakers have been pushing for years: forcing the businesses to close from midnight to 6 a.m.; barring them from being 1,000 feet from a school or church; and banning nudity and lap dances. Remember this the next time Kinzer talks about government hassling small businesses and local control.
But there is hope, the AP reports. The Senate sounds cool on the whole anti-boobie bill. Senate Majority Leader Jay Emler told the AP: "Frankly, I don't know how much time there is to look into that bill."
Of course, Kinzer is determined. Someone might see a nipple and become aroused!
"It may be that once they begin hearing from their constituents, they'll think differently," Kinzer told the AP.
Wonder if Kinzer will apply the same logic if his constituents call him and tell him that they want the unconstitutional law banning gay sex repealed. Just in case, you can call his office at 785-296-7692 or e-mail him at email@example.com. And his home number is also listed, so you can give him a jingle at 913-829-6404.
