A pleasantly eccentric take on politics

It’s Sunday and that can only mean one thing in Kansas…

If you said a gun celebration picnic you would be correct!

Nothing…I repeat…NOTHING says macaroni salad good times like a gun celebration picnic.

Luckily I found one right here in my own backyard.  Here’s the 411 on the picnic:

Sunday, July 21, 2013 in Johnson County, KS at 3:00 there is a community picnic sponsored by the Johnson County Open Carry Group.  According to their Facebook page:

Johnson County Open Carry
We have been successful in restoring some of our lost rights in Lenexa. It is now legal to openly carry loaded guns in a holster in most public places in Lenexa. There are some restrictions that you should be aware of but this was a good start on a long hard battle to restore all of our freedoms.

Now, the hard part is trying to decide which holster to wear.  So many choices so little time.  How about this little gem with the Book of Psalm on it?  It’s between this one and the other one I have with the commandment Thou Shalt Not Murder.


It’s a family picnic and nothing says childhood good times like my daughter bringing her rifle. Maybe when she is done with the slides and swings she can shoot a few rounds.

Aww..snap!  A person on the Facebook page asked if it was ok to bring rifles or just side arms.  Only side arms at this family friendly event.  Looks like little Susie will have to leave her rifle home this time.  One can only hope that one day it will be ok for little Susie to pack heat of her own so she doesn’t feel so left out.

With it being 90 degrees about 110% humidity, tempers may flare if there isn’t enough potato salad for all the guests.  Just in case, there organizer put out this warning:

We need to promote ourselves as rational, law-abiding citizens who are merely expressing their 2nd Amendment rights in accordance with Kansas (and now LENEXA) law. I have no doubt that everyone will be on their best behavior but it’s worth a mention.

Grab the sunblock and the pork rinds, but be sure to bring enough for EVERYONE!  How many is everyone?  No one is exactly sure since this is the first event of its kind in Johnson County.  We can only hope there will be MANY more because nothing says good times like public parks, kids and guns.

Now excuse me while I see how my jello mold is doing.  I need to add the marshmallows and grab my gun.  It’s picnic time!

    Aaaah don’t be hating just because the “Justice for Travon” was a washout. Come on down maybe you will realize that profiling us as a bunch gun-toting rednecks will be a washout to.

    1. Who is profiling? Is that because I brought up jello molds? Everyone loves a good jello mold!
