Gun Rights Victory In Kansas

Good news for gun owners in Kansas, according to the Associated Press. Gov. Kathleen Sebeluis signed a bill earlier this week lifting the ban on a variety of Class III weapons.

_ Kansans will be able to own machine guns, other fully automatic weapons, sawed-off shotguns and silencers starting July 1.

Gov. Kathleen Sebelius signed a bill Monday to legalize the possession of such weapons. The state banned owning machine guns in 1933, but some legislators said a change was necessary because legal questions threaten to keep dealers from delivering weapons to law enforcement agencies._

Given Sebelius’s history of not supporting gun-rights measures—she vetoed a concealed carry bill a couple years back—this comes as a welcomed surprise.
