Kansas Republicans arent afraid of looking ignorant when it comes to guns.

Going to the GOP state convention starting this Friday in Wichita just got more dangerous for all those staying at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
Thats because GOP officials fought for and won the right to carry weapons into the hotel during the convention.
My favorite quote comes from an email sent by Debbie Luper, chairwoman of the Republican Party in Butler County:
NOTE: for our convention, the Hyatt has agreed to drop its no guns on premises policy! That was a point Chair Kelly Arnold negotiated hard for in the contract.
Yes, forget good room rates or fluffy pillows at the Hyatt. What Kansans Republicans really want to do is carry their guns into meetings.
GOP officials yakked on about how the hotels usual prohibitions against guns were supposedly meaningless and allegedly didnt make anyone really safer.
So whats wrong with toting weapons into this event?
Well, the facts show a few things that gun lovers dont like to admit are true:
Dont worry, though. It appears from their quotes that many Kansas Republicans like to talk about all the guns they own, but arent so sure the weapons will be needed at their hotel. Thats so comforting to hear.
