Head of Kansas Rifle Association Steps Down

(AP) – The president of the Kansas State Rifle Association is retiring because of health problems.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1Z4c2GY ) Patricia Stoneking announced her retirement in an e-mail to members this weekend. Stoneking says she’s retiring because of the severity of health issues she’s had for months and that doctors have told her to minimize stress.
As leader of the Kansas NRA affiliate for a decade, Stoneking helped the association grow into a major player in Kansas politics. She was also the main proponent for a bill signed into law this spring that eliminated the training requirement to carry a concealed firearm.
Kathleen Wade, association vice president, will assume the duties of president, and Moriah Day, a staffer for Secretary of State Kris Kobach, will lead the group’s political action committee
