No one needs an AR-15 unless he or she is going into combat. I would prefer not to think of Kansas as a combat zone.

"Kansas is the most pro-gun state in America." Kobach is an idiot.

"The one common denominator to all of these mass shooting, mental health." Presuming your statement to be true, why did Herr Trump make it easier for mentally ill people to buy guns? "Almost exactly a year ago, Trump signed a law to revoke an Obama-era gun regulation that made it more difficult for those with mental illnesses to acquire guns. Media was not allowed to attend the bill-signing event."https://www.motherjones.com/politics/...

"U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas and 2nd District Rep. Lynn Jenkins, both Republicans, said Thursday that they expect Congress to take up some kind of gun control legislation, possibly within the next week." Probably the same action they took after Sandy Hook. Thoughts and prayers and nothing else.

Thank, God, Brownback and Trump are now the federal government's problem children and the former is no longer ours.

The right wing's purge of voters has reached the Supreme Court. https://hosted.ap.org/article/2f75962...

"The legislature shall make suitable provision for finance of the educational interests of the state." This constitutional provision has saved Kansas from the deliberate effort to destroy our public education system. Let's keep it.

Senators Moran and Roberts vividly illuminated their lack of concern for the average Kansan by supporting the GOP tax increase bill. Not only does the bill blow a planet sized $1.5 trillion hole in the deficit and raise taxes on the middle class, it is going to trigger $25 billion in automatic cuts in medicare. Thanks, Jerry and Pat. I doubt whether either of you even read the tax bill, since your leadership was making it up as they went along. Your lack of careful consideration will be remembered. https://www.cbo.gov/system/files/115t...

It seems that Congressman Hoyer is watching out for our interests here in Kansas better than Congresswoman Jenkins.
cbo: house tax bill triggers $25 billion in medicare cuts
If the House GOP tax plan passes, it is projected to cut revenue significantly, likely increasing the deficit by $1.456 trillion from 2018 to 2027, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation and Congressional Budget Office (CBO). With a number that large, Congress’s “pay as you go” rules that prevent unchecked spending would fall into place, a move that could cut Medicare’s budget by as much as $25 billion for 2018. In a letter to House minority whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD), the CBO explained that without any more money to offset the fall in revenue, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) would be required to issue a “sequestration order” to reduce spending in 2018 by $136 billion.

I would far rather have Steny Hoyer visit our state any day than to have to pay additional taxes and have my medicare cut to fund the Republican tax cuts for the extremely rich that Congresswoman Jenkins just voted for. If Hoyer can help get Paul Davis elected, and get rid of the Republican majority in Congress in 2018, he is more than welcome.
