Quote of the Week: '...did that really just pass?'

"Let me assure you, there were many of our members who (were thinking), did that really just pass?"

—Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey at a news conference last week describing his surprise at how easily Sen. Mae Beavers’ “open carry” gun bill passed through the Senate (25-2 on April 8). The bill would allow any gun owner the right to openly carry it in public without a handgun permit. The bill was later killed by the House Finance Subcommittee.
