Governor allows gun ban to become law

Kansas News Service  File

"Additionally, they included a sunset on the school funding system, allowing for a regular and robust discussion about the needs of Kansas students".

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback had to act Thursday on a bill created to allow state hospitals, other public hospitals and mental health centers to ban concealed guns without increasing security.

The Governor can sign the bill, veto it or let it pass. Secretary of State Kris Kobach wants Brownback to veto the legislation.

Existing law would have required publicly owned buildings to add metal detectors and armed guards or allow employees and visitors to bring in guns starting July 1.

Britain can rejoin the European Union but only on poorer terms
The first round of Brexit talks will begin two days before a meeting of European Union leaders in Brussels on 22 and 23 June. On Monday, the European Commission insisted it was "fully prepared and ready for the negotiations to start" the process.

By letting the bill become law without his intervention, Brownback erased the chance that the public hospitals would be forced to either rush to put security measures in place or face allowing the handguns in their buildings. Public hospitals and college campuses were given four years to prepare for the law to take effect. He criticized the bill for restricting gun-owners' rights at public health facilities, forcing them "to subject themselves to greater risk while giving up their right to protect themselves".

But public hospital officials argued that they compete against private hospitals that don't allow guns and security upgrades would drain funds away from health care.

Allowing guns in psychiatric hospitals would be risky, Elsbury said, and the hospitals can't afford to spend millions on security.

"They've designed a new vehicle, but we don't think they put enough gas in it", Robb said. Even a majority of the 330,000 LLCs - business owners and farmers - stated that they were willing to give up their tax-exempt status and pay taxes to get the state of Kansas out of this financial crisis and on sound financial footing once again.

Steph Curry scored 34 points with 10 assists, while draining 12 of 15 from the free-throw line. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels tweeted about it, saying: "Impressing.

The governor's struggle with the bill was evident in the message he sent lawmakers. "The Kansas Lottery has a disproportionately negative effect on low-income Kansans".

Legislators also felt compelled to address the issue after Brownback proposed spending $24 million over two years on extra security at the state's two mental hospitals and its two hospitals for the developmentally disabled.
