Open carry gun lawsuit against PV not yet filed, but Libertarians say it’s coming

Handgun Kansas Libertarians have not yet filed the lawsuit they threatened against Prairie Village and Leawood in a letter to city officials last week — but the group’s 2nd Amendment Chair said the suit was forthcoming.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have not filed yet,” said Earl McIntosh, the party’s 2nd Amendment Chair.

The letter received by Prairie Village city councilors, staff and Mayor Ron Shaffer indicated that the suit was to be filed last Friday — the day Adam Lanza murdered 20 schoolchildren in one of the worst mass shootings in United States’ history.

McIntosh said he anticipated the suit would hit the Kansas District Court clerk’s office Thursday or Friday.
