Kansas will now become the fifth state to allow its residents to carry
concealed firearms without a permit throughout the state. Kansas joins Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming in having such a policy. Montana and Arkansas
have concealed carry without a permit, but not everywhere. I am
not sure exactly what specifications exist to limitations or locations
where it would not be permitted. Most states do not permit carry
coceiled in Federal Buildings, Schools, Hospitals, and perhaps not in
business establishments that have policies against it.
Kansas still will issue permits for gun owners who want to carry
concealed in other states that recognize Kansas permits. A person
seeking a Kansas permit must undergo eight hours of firearms training.
Brownback said gun owners have shown they are responsible.
However Democratic state Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau of Wichita
said the state still should require some training. That opionion
of course does not surprise me one bit, since most democrats have an
anti 2nd ammendment agenda as part of their political platform.
Further on the matter of the 2nd ammendment I find that the Reverend Samuel Mosteller, longtime president of the Georgia Southern Christian Leadership Conference
(SCLC) has statement saing that Black families should be
exercising their Second Amendment right, in response to all the violent
and tragic police shootings claiming the lives of several unarmed Black
men and children.
I find that he seems to be implying that police shooting may be a
result of racism, however he concieniently disregards and does not
mention that many of the police shooting are the result of black police
officers shooting both black, white and hispatic suspects as well.
Reverend Samuel Mosteller goes
on to say, “You know, the SCLC stands for nonviolence,” but
nonviolence hasn’t worked in this instance.” “You stand there,
(police) shoot. You run, they shoot. We’re going to have to take a
different tack,” Mosteller passionately claimed. “Nobody is protecting
the Black community! I am going to have to advocate, at this point,
that all African-Americans advocate their 2nd Amendment rights."
I find here in his statement the inference of racism in police
shootings, which is not proven to be fact in most cases. However
as far as so-called civil rights leaderss are concernedd if the suspect
who was shot was black and the police were white, then to the
racebaters such as Reverend Mosteller, that is enough evidence for him.
The legal system should make sure to never call this idiot racist
as a jurior in and criminal or civil case, as he could not be
As for his statements regarding the 2nd ammendment applying toward
Black American Citizens owning and baring firearms, I conpletely agree
with him and have always asseted that the 2nd ammendment applies toward
everyone, regardless of their race or ethnicity. It is the
leftists liberals such as in the following article who seem to place
certain emphasis upon a rise of black Americans obtaining firearms,
that the natoriously leftists-liberal National Public Radio (NPR) seems
to be leading the public to be specially concerned about the rise of
Black American Law Biding citisens wanting to arm themselves.
NPR: CONCEALED CARRY SURGING IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY
The NPR reported that concealed carry permits and gun ownership for
self-defense is surging in the black community. They go on to
say," This marks a seismic shift toward guns in the black community, as
more and more individuals realize the safety of their lives and the the
lives of their families is literally in their own hands.
According to NPR, this positive view of gun ownership in the black
community has jumped almost 50 percent in two years’s time. They cite a
PEW Research Poll showing “54 percent of blacks now see gun ownership
as a good thing,” which is up from the “29 percent” who saw it that way
two years ago.
Because of this, Detroit, with its high black population, has actually
emerged as a trendsetter for urban communities with citizens who
legally carry guns.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig said, "When you look at New Jersey,
you look at New York, you look at California, DC, and Chicago, really
it’s still a foreign experience. [But] when you look at the city of
Detroit, we’re kind of leading the way in terms of urban areas with
law-abiding citizens carrying guns.
The was an instance of a self-defense shooting in Detroit, Michigan, in
which a female homeowner shot an alleged intruder to save her brother.
Afterward, black neighbors encouraged every Detroit homeowner to get a
concealed carry license in order to protect themselves inside the home
Detroit Police Chief Craig grew up in Detroit and says that in the
1970s, “law-abiding citizens wouldn’t dream of carrying guns.”
But times are changing, and the black community is realizing that
an armed, law-abiding citizen can make a great contribution to the
safety of himself and others when carrying a gun for self-defense.
I have followed Chief Craig's support for the second Ammendment for
some time now and agree with him completely. In the past I have
also made mention of his completel honsety regarding the Police's
inabillity to actually protect their citizens. I have also
acknowledged that this fact is not the fault of the Police.
The Second Amendment was written
for ALL American Citizens regardless of race or ethnicity. Yet
the only people I find expressing some sort of shock at the idea of a
specific race being armed, is the typical leftist-liberal anti-gun
lobby, organizations and Democrat Politicians. They are also
the same gang who try to convince the black community and other
minority races that the Democrat Party represents them. Nothing
could be further from the truth though, as it is the Democrat Party
itself that has been the most destructive toward Black and Hispanic
families as well as toward all of our American Society over the
Now my personal advise regarding Carry Concealed or Open Carry as some
states do permit: If stopped by police, always be polite
and respectful. Tell them emediately that you do carry concieled,
keep your hands up and away from your weapon. Request the officer
remove your weapon so that no incidents or movements could be
misinterpreted by them. Never be argumentative and always address
them as sir. Personally I find no reason to be combative verbally
If your state requires a permit, then comply and obtain one before
carrying concealed. If your state permists open carry, do so in a
descrete manner and make sure it is permitted by any business you
patronise. An example of this is in my case there is one
particular resturant, that I know does permitt open carry and I
patronise them. It is the same at a grochery store and gas
station that I regulary visit. All of these have no problem with
my open carry. I never flaunt the weapon, but it is there if a
threatening situation does occur. If I am ever confronted by the
local PD, I keep my hands away from the weapon, in plain sight and am
very polite and respectful should they inquire as to why I am carrying
a pistol. Of course I "Yes Sir Them To Death". In this way
I am non-provocative toward them and they know emediately that I am
respectful to them as I polite state that I am in compliance with state
law that does permit open carry and the business establishment that I
am in also has not objections to it.
Now my traing goes back to my military days, when it comes to weapons
so yes I am well trained and experienced with weapons. I also do
agree that anyone not trained and experienced attend weapons safty
classes and also visit your loal shooting range. Never never
handle a wezpon in the pressence of a police officer. If you
carry your weapon in the glove compartment of your vehicle and you're
pulled over for whatever reason, inform the police officer of your
weapon in the glove box. The officer will never legitimately ask
you to remove it and hand it to him but even if he did, never, never do
so, but invite him to remove it or inspect it if he must. You
want to go home at the end of the day and so does he. Common
Sense plays has alot to do with all of what I am talking about here.
