How is She Governor of Kansas?

From Alaska to Wyoming:

TOPEKA - Reloaded and trying to avoid a repeat of last year, gun advocates have returned with a bill that would let qualified Kansans carry hidden firearms.

This year's legislation is almost identical to the proposal Gov. Kathleen Sebelius vetoed last year. And, unless the bill changes, her aides said, it's likely to get blocked again.

But some legislators think the upcoming election could put more pressure on Sebelius to sign Senate Bill 418. The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee is expected to move the proposal to the Senate floor Tuesday.

Even if Sebelius vetoes the bill this year, Rep. Candy Ruff said, backers of the bill will work to secure enough votes to override a veto. A two-thirds vote of both the Senate and the House is necessary to override a veto.

"This is a bill that's going to become law one way or another," Ruff, D-Leavenworth, said. She is a leading supporter of the proposal.
This is important legislation for the people of Kansas who wish to take advantage of their right to self-defense. At a time when disgruntled employees go postal and thugs shoot up gay bars for no good reason the ultimate authority to defend you is you. If only this country had more good Democrats like Candy Ruff.
