Because, well, we are this batshit crazy in my state I suppose:
Topeka — The Kansas House on Wednesday advanced gun bills that could produce a standoff between state and federal law officers, and open up campuses, classrooms and the Statehouse to concealed weapons.Honestly I wish I could say this surprises me, but it doesn't. The following part, however, does surprise me just a little:
Supporters said the bills would make Kansas safer and assert the constitutional right to bear arms. Opponents said the measures would endanger public safety and lead to costly litigation.
The most heated debate surrounded HB 2199, which says that any personal firearm, accessory or ammunition that is owned or manufactured in Kansas and that remains in the state is not subject to federal law. And under the bill, federal authorities trying to enforce any kind of rule on such a firearm would face possible arrest and criminal charges.Emphasis mine.
Oh boy, oh boy! Gunfight at the OK Corral between the Feds and State law enforcement agencies. Woohoo! Grab me some popcorn and a bullet-proof vest so I can watch the shootout! Nothin' like a good confrontation between the State and Feds to help curb gun violence and ensure personal safety!
Yes, this still needs to pass the Senate and be signed by Brownback. But with these Wingnuts in charge, you gonna try to convince me this WON'T happen?
