Kansas' concealed carry law took effect January 1, 2007. On January
19, two armed men burst into a gas station owned by Dean Yee.
According to police, they twice demanded money from Yee while
holding him at gunpoint. A customer inside the store, however, had a
concealed-carry permit. He shouted for the robbers to drop their
weapons. When they refused, he shot one suspect before the other
fled. Station owner Yee feels lucky to be alive. "I would have been
shot in the chest," he told 27 News. Kansas Sen. Phil Journey,
(R-Haysville) added," Hopefully this will put other criminals and
thugs on notice that Kansas is a different state today than it was
just 20 days ago."
