Well, wouldn't it be interesting if the unstoppable force of the Gun Nut Lobby ran into the immoveable object of insurance companies?

Kansas recently passed a law allowing teachers and school workers to carry concealed weapons, because everyone knows that only a good guy with a gun can stop a bad guy with a gun. But the insurance company that covers 85%+ of Kansas schools has a policy that only trained law enforcement can carry guns on campuses they insure.

The insurance company denies that this is political:

It’s not a political decision, but a financial one based on the riskier climate it estimates would be created, the insurer said.

But of course it is a political decision, since it's about the two things Americans are most crazy about: guns and money. Will the NRA and its members boycott insurance companies which refuse to insure potential K-12 free-fire zones? And I might point out that if this concealed carry bullshit creates a climate too risky for an insurance company to put its fucking money in, such an environment is too risky to send your goddamn children.

So, Kansans have a choice: guns in schools or insurance for said schools: quite a showdown. Cue up theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly."
