The saying that if you ban guns, only the crooks will have guns. Of course, fences make good neighbors as do locks.

Taking the sayings backwards, one comes up with:

Gun rights advocates divided on bill allowing ‘permitless carry’ in Kansas

But some longtime gun rights supporters in Wichita say they are puzzled … a permit – and without the training that earns that permit. The bill passed in the Kansas Senate by a vote of 31-7. Before it becomes law, it

Which makes sense. A great deal of sense, because guns will be carried by the good, bad and, in my case at least, the ugly; with or without a permit. I also agree with the idea of a gun safety course of some kind – preferably a good one. 

Notice I said “Safety” course.

Now. Tell me how this makes any sense at all, other than as a whipping stick for political proponents of power in place:

KS lawmakers propose banning public from viewing footage of police body cams

In Kansas … in Wichita are pushing for a new citizen review board, to look at controversial cases. If the bill passes, the board would not be able to see body cam video. There’s a hearing next Wednesday in Topeka.

The old saying: “He who touches the paper last is the boss.” may be extended to censorship of a public official in performance of official duties and who knows how many things can go on in controlled circumstances.

He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.

    I decided to tell you something that I thought you ought to know. For two years I have been talking to Patrick Romans. He told me several things like how he cheated and divorced who he cheated with and his child porn case and how he didn’t do any of what they said he did. I as a good friend believed him and supported him all the way. Just this past month I found out that he had a girlfriend because she contacted me. I was in love with him and was devastated he went to prison. But now I know a lot of unanswered questions. I always felt like a secret. Now I know why. He told me he had three kids well he actually has five. He told me I was te only girl but obviously I wasn’t. And his girlfriend isn’t the only other girl. He had at least three other women he was involved with. He’s a master manipulator, narcissistic, liar, a cad and an asshole. I was nothing but good to him but he doesn’t think I’m a good girl. Well he’s wrong. When he gets out keep an eye on him. And if I hear he hurt any of his children in anyway I will not hesitate to contact the proper authorities. Because he lied to me for so long, I don’t have his back anymore. I really do believe he did what they say and he left that stuff there to get caught because deep down he knows it’s wrong but can’t control himself. He wanted to be punished. Because now he’s happy and thinks this is all past him. He took me to places that his girlfriend would frequent so that’s how I figure he did what they say. He loves the thrill it gives him of being found out. He also listens to scanners. So that he knows where cops are gonna be etc. You can do what you want with this information because I’m done with him. He doesn’t deserve anything or anyone. He told me one time after witnessing an accident how he didn’t feel anything for the victims. I found that odd. I immediately thought of their families and felt sorry. He said how do you feel that because I don’t feel anything. He seemed a bit concerned that he didn’t. It was probably the only truth he told me. He’s numb. So all I ask of you is when he gets out keep tabs on his whereabouts as much as you can. I’ve been searching for answers for quite awhile and now I’ve got them. You once called me a cop with a hard on or a woman on welfare. Well in all reality I’m a woman going to school for a bachelors in environmental science and will be graduating this semester. I’m pretty darn smart. I just convinced myself and didn’t trust my instincts. I always felt like a secret and now I know why.

      Candace: ‘Grat’s on the course completion. So many don’t stick it out. Your subjects Mom, even though she didn’t want to see the end as it is, did wish it over. One way or the other. Closure, you understand. There see to be many ladies in the area that go pinched mouth when his name is mentioned. He seems to have pissed off so many when he divorced and under the conditions he created. The women do have a coffee clutch that is very effective. I point that out to say that if, w hen he get out of prison, he violates the terms of his parole and register sentence he won’t last very long without becoming a perp once again.

        Glad to hear that. It’ll take me quite a bit of time to stop wondering why me etc, As I was insecure and had low self esteem. Makes me wish I had talked to you earlier as you were actually the one to alert me to the girlfriend. Thank you so much for the congratulations. I just hope I’ll find someone who’ll actually be truthful and love me like he so obviously in the end didn’t. My heart is broken but at least I’m not a pedophile. Lol
