Kansas senator, mayor spar over gun rights website

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas state senator is demanding that Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer take his name off the website of Mayors Against Illegal Guns group.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/1ebp6QF ) reports that state. Sen. Michael O’Donnell used a Facebook post to question the city’s membership in the coalition.

O’Donnell’s posting urges people to ask city leaders to drop out of what he calls a “gun control group.”

Brewer says he vaguely remembers the group’s formation in 2006, but doesn’t remember Wichita signing on. He says while he doesn’t want guns in public places, he respects gun rights.

The group’s mission statement says members are determined to fight crime, and believe more can be done to stop criminals from getting guns, while also protecting the rights of citizens own them.
