Local Kansas GOP official: ‘Offending Muslims is the duty of any civilized person. Especially with a .45.’

Gavin Ellzey, the vice chairman of the Kansas Republican 3rd Congressional District Committee, made the remarks on Twitter in early July. He told The Star, “I’m not trying to offend anybody. I sure wouldn’t shoot anybody. I don’t even own a gun.” He said he later deleted the tweet.
