No permit required to conceal carry in these 5 states

Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback last week approved a law that will eliminate license and training requirements for carrying a concealed firearm starting on July 1, the Associated Press reported.

“Responsible gun ownership, for protection and sport, is a right inherent in our Constitution,” Brownback, a Republican, said in a statement. “It is a right that Kansans hold dear and have repeatedly and overwhelmingly reaffirmed a commitment to protecting.”

The law makes Kansas the fifth state (along with Alaska, Arizona, Vermont, and Wyoming) to fully allow residents to carry a concealed gun without a license within its borders, according to the National Rifle Association. Montana and Arkansas allow concealed carry without a license, although not everywhere, the NRA told the AP.

Homeowner Protects Himself From Two Armed Robbers

A homeowner in Texas found himself in a gunfight with two armed burglars. The fight ended with one of the suspects shot and both suspects behind bars. The homeowner was not injured.

According to local media reports:

The Garland Police Department reports the incident occurred just after 7 a.m. on Friday, March 27, 2015, when police received a 911 call about gunshots in the 5200 block of Hollow Bend Lane.

“When officers arrived, they were told several men had come inside the home to rob them,” stated Garland Police Department Public Information Officer Joe Harn. “During the attempted robbery, shots were exchanged between the robbers and the homeowner.”

No injuries were reported for the individuals who live in the home but police say one of the burglars had been shot.

This incident is the one of the most common types of defensive gun uses. That is, one in which no one was killed. Despite this being one of the most common types of defensive gun uses, these incidents are often not included in statistics about defensive gun uses. Many of these statistics and studies focus solely on justifiable homicides, which represent only a fraction of total defensive gun uses.
