If you need to get a permit, take classes, then take a test to obtain a license to drive a car, you should need a permit, take safety classes, and then take a test to obtain a license to own a gun—it’s that simple.

Detectives of Kansas police are currently working the scene and collecting evidence from surveillance video at the establishment.
Police said they had no reason to believe the shooting was racially motivated and that it appeared to be an isolated incident, possibly related to a disturbance that occurred earlier in the bar.
The weapon that was used was a handgun, police said.
