First the bad news.Â The Democrat controlled house in New Hampshire appears to have defeated an initiative to repeal the ban on firearms in the State Capitol. The headline is “House sends gun ban repeal packing.” I say gun owners in New Hampshire ought to send the Democrats packing in November.
Good news, though, is that Kansas is moving a relaxation of carry laws along:
The House voted 65-57 in support of a bill that would allow the carrying of concealed weapons in municipal and state agency buildings unless the facility has enough security measures in place to ensure no weapons are permitted in the building. The bill would exclude school districts and would require that the carrier have a concealed-carry permit.
Sounds a lot like my “Three S” strategy.

The only reason NH barred guns on the state capitol is because the Free Stater wookie-suiters scared the Democrats by open carrying there.
So much for getting people used to the idea of seeing guns in public.
If the ban is for within the buildings (or even within the grounds) there should at the least be provision for checking and retrieving them at the boundary. Otherwise, it effectively bans carrying anywhere.
Got a small chuckle out of the argument “we did not enforce the previous ban because we did not know it existed” – I guess “ignorance of the law is no defense” is once again shown to be understood as applying only to those not working within the government that makes those laws.
