H&N by Rep E. Werner Reschke 9/8/17.
719 calls for the forced confiscation of property (guns)
by the police with no due process, no conviction of a
crime and no accusation of a crime. It allows anyone,
including strangers off the street, to make assessments
and a case before a judge. It allows judges, with no
mental health credentials, to render judgment on another
personís state of mind whom they have never met or
spoken to. Furthermore, it actually forbids judges from
considering assessments of the respondentís mental
health by people who actually do have mental health
credentials. The law even goes so far to allow a judge
to confiscate every firearm in a household because one
person in the household has a past DUI conviction."

the bill would
trample Second Amendment rights or would make
criminals of gun owners who choose not to get a
background check every time they hand over a gun
to a friend or neighbor. The seller of a gun
would face a misdemeanor for a first offense, punishable by up
to a year in jail and a $6,250 fine. A second offense would be a
felony, with a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison
and a $250,000 fine"

anti-gun bills by Senator Doug Whitsett, posted to KBC 4/7/13. "The
disarming of state legislators and their staffs is the last thing that I
wish to see. In my opinion, gun free areas might as well be advertised as
potential killing zones....(Prozanski's)
bill would require any person applying for a concealed handgun license to
first-pass a live-fire test at a firing range. The test would require
accuracy while repeatedly firing up to twenty shots in 60 seconds or less.This
would certainly be difficult to achieve using a handgun, such as a revolver,
that only holds six rounds of ammunition. One would have to reload the
weapon three times in order to fire twenty rounds in a minute or less."
