Brownback Answers Holder’s Gun Rights Letter

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback is citing the Us Constitution and the Kansas Bill of Rights in responding to US attorney General Eric Holder’s letter to him.
Thursday, Holder warned Brownback the state’s new law, protecting the Second Amendment, is unconstitutional.
Holder warned the Department of Justice might take the state to court.
Brownback fired back Friday.
He says the US Constitution’s ninth amendment and tenth amendment, plus the state’s own Bill of Rights protects the new law.
The fourth item In the Kansas Bill of Rights states, “A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and state, for lawful hunting and recreational use, and for any other lawful purpose;”.
The ninth and tenth federal amendments reserve certain rights to states.
Brownback wrote Holder, “The people of Kansas are likewise committed to defending the sovereignty”, of the state.
The Governor also noted that the Second Amendment Protection Bill was passed easily by both chambers of the legislature and that some Democratic leaders voted for it.
“This is not a partisan issue in Kansas,” Brownback wrote.
