Gun resolutions – Governments of Ulysses, Syracuse and Lakin recently passed resolutions endorsing the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. Grant and Seward counties did the same. In doing so, they’ve raised a simple question from many observers: Why bother? Even though such resolutions may be viewed as a way to ward off attempts to restrict the Second Amendment, it’s safe to say they wouldn’t stand up against firearms-related changes in federal law. Over in Sedgwick County, where another Second Amendment resolution narrowly passed, County Commissioner Dave Unruh took a more realistic stand in voting against the resolution. Unruh – a supporter of the Second Amendment – said the resolution wasn’t necessary because the U.S. Constitution and Kansas Constitution already protect those rights. Unruh said he favors fewer laws and regulations, and considered the resolution needless duplication. He’s right.
