Statehouses across the country are considering measures to remove guns from people who pose a threat. A Kansas lawmaker has a proposal to do just that, but it isn’t getting a hearing. On Tuesday, gun control advocates turned out in force in Topeka to oppose another bill. That measure would make it easier to arm school teachers. For the Kansas News Service, Jim McLean has details.



Many lawmakers are opposed to the measures advocated by gun control activists. They are proposing a bill to allow teachers and other school personnel to carry concealed guns.
