Sanity on the rise

Sometimes I hear news that makes me think that reason and sanity WILL prevail:

Missouri lawmakers override veto, expand gun rights in public schools, cities

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri lawmakers expanded the potential for teachers to bring guns to schools and for residents to openly carry firearms, in a vote Thursday that capped a two-year effort by the Republican-led Legislature to expand gun rights over the objection of the Democratic governor.
The new law will allow specially trained school employees to carry concealed guns on campuses. It also allows anyone with a concealed weapons permit to carry guns openly, even in cities or towns with bans against the open carrying of firearms. The age to obtain a concealed weapons permit also will drop from 21 to 19.
They missed passing a measure to nullify illegal, un-Constitutional federal gun laws, though.

Baby steps. I may live long enough to be living in a free country, after all.
