This Week in Local Newspapers: Guns

Alongside news of the tragic shootings of two young men in East Lawrence this week, the LJ-World decided to also run a light-hearted front-page story about a local reporter testing the area's concealed-carry laws by taking a gun out to local restaurants, bars, and shops. While the story may indeed have exposed some problems in the current legislation, mainly it just informed everyone that it's currently perfectly fine to take your gun to the bar.

Kip says: "Now don't get me wrong, folks. I would never actually shoot a hipster. But at the same time I believe I'd find it comforting just to have that cold steel on hand when I go out to the Replay."
