Kobach, Colyer compete over who loves the NRA more. Is that what Kansas voters want?

Kobach is pure scum..Bastard should have his nuts cut off...

Is the recent movement in public opinion on gun laws the harbinger of another #MeToo or another Arab Spring? We still don’t know if the shift is temporary or a tipping point.

But Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer and Secretary of State Kris Kobach, both Republicans who are running for governor, seem to be betting that it’s only a blip as they compete for gold stars from the National Rifle Association.

A new CNN poll taken after the massacre of 17 students and teachers in Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, shows a big shift in a short time: Seventy percent of those surveyed now support stricter gun laws. That’s up from 52 percent in October, right after 58 people were fatally shot in Las Vegas, and it’s the highest level of support for tightening restrictions since 1993.

All the same, Kobach is trying to get the NRA to hold its annual convention in Kansas. He wrote in a Breitbart column, “The time has come for schools to allow willing teachers, coaches, and staff to be armed.” Armed school resource officers, Kobach wrote, “are not enough ... If there are multiple armed teachers and staff in a school, then the response time can be reduced to seconds, rather than minutes.” Not only that, but states that already “permit teachers to carry need to revisit their laws to ensure that it is not too difficult for teachers who want approval to receive it.”
