Local governments in Kansas that have chosen to restrict open carry have had their right to decide if they want residents to be able to parade around with AK-47s taken away following a piece of legislation that passed in April that makes gun laws uniform across the state.
A new gun law goes into effect on Tuesday that will allow “responsible gun owners” to openly carry their penile extensions in a holster, in their hands, or on a sling, regardless of any local legislation preventing it.
Police say that, because many find the sight of a gun in public frightening, they will still respond to concerned residents’ calls about people with weapons. “They may make a consensual interaction with the person, ‘Like hey, how are you doing today. I see that you are exercising your right to bear firearms. Is there anything I can do for you today?’ Or something along those lines,” said Capt. Rance Quinn of the Kansas City Police Department. However, he notes that the ammosexual is free to completely ignore officers if there is no evidence he is not committing a crime.
There is a positive side to the new law: It protects businesses’ right to prohibit firearms–something many businesses will utilize. Mary Ryman of Ryman Liquor stores says that she feels if someone walked into her establishment with a gun it would likely be to rob her. “That would maybe set off alarms, that we should be very cautious with this customer. We would ask that person to put it back in their car,” she said.
Thanks to the Kansas legislature, residents across the state–including those whose local governments attempted to protect them–now have the distinct pleasure of guessing if the person who just walked in with a loaded shotgun is there to shoot up the place…or is simply exercising his Second Amendment rights.
Open Carry “activists” across the country have recently proven to be dangerously unstable. Rob Kinnison, a strong advocate of “gun rights,” recently told reasonable regulation activists Moms Demand Action that he has “plenty of ammo” for them.
Despite the legality of open carry, some businesses have elected to protect customers. Jack-in-the-Box, Chipotle, Chili’s, Sonic, Starbucks, and others have taken a stand against ammosexual insanity, and no longer permit open carry in their locations.
