    Default Story from a Kansas State Highway Patrol officer 👮

    I made a traffic stop on an elderly lady the other day for speeding on U.S. 166 Eastbound at Mile Marker 73 just East of Sedan, Kansas.

    I asked for her driver's license, registration, and proof of insurance.

    The lady took out the required information and handed it to me.

    In with the cards I was somewhat surprised (due to her advanced age) to see she had a conceal carry permit. I looked at her and ask if she had a weapon in her possession at this time.

    She responded that she indeed had a .45 automatic in her glove box.

    Something---body language, or the way she said it---made me want to ask if she had any other firearms. She did admit to also having a 9mm Glock in her center console. Now I had to ask one more time if that was all.

    She responded once again that she did have just one more, a .38 special in her purse. I then asked her what was she so afraid of.

    She looked me right in the eye and said, "Not a darn thing!"

    Not at all funny given that the nation is currently mourning two recent mass shootings of innocents. I know you are a long time poster here but I would like to please ask you to consider voluntarily deleting this post. The timing is tragic.

    I didn't take offense to your posting, Star Lover. There is a huge difference in a person who has taken a conceal and carry class, been background checked, and responsibly carries a weapon for protection, and a mentally ill person who carries out a mass murder. Since I travel alone quite often, I carry a registered weapon and I have a permit to carry which has to be renewed every 5 years. in order to do that, I have to take the class again and be background checked. This will have to happen every 5 years in order to keep my permit current.

    Don't mess with us Kansans!!!!! Sedan is only 40 miles from me. This could very well have been my sil. DH and I have been discussing getting a gun since we are so often camped out away from "civilization". He was a sharpshooter in the military and I hunted for years so we are both familiar with guns. I think though we have about decided on a non-lethal pepper spray pistol. You don't have to be as close as if you were using canned pepper spray and I don't know of much, animal or human, that would stand for five shots of pepper spray.

    Thanks, Star lover. I enjoyed it. If you lose your sense of humor, there isn't a lot of what makes us human left.
    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    Anita,
    This was funny cos' I pictured my Grandma doing/saying the same thing.

    NOT the same as current tragic happenings. And I agree that if we lose our sense of humor we are losing an important part of ourselves. Having a sense of humor is partly what got me thru my lovely chemo.


    Please don't stop posting your funnies. Sometimes that's the best part of my day.

    Oh my goodness, I don't guess I would be either with all that fire power. But i cannot stand guns myself. So it's up to everyone else to have theirs I guess.
