National Edition News cover for September 30, 2014 - Chicago gun law ‘disarms’ blacks, poor: ADVANCE FOR WEEKEND APRIL 10-11--John W. Richardson, owner of Topeka Shooters' Supply in Topeka, Kan., demonstrates a holster that could be used to carry a concealed weapon at his gun shop Thursday, April 8, 1999. It is unlikely that a bill to legalize the concealed carry of a gun before the Kansas Legislature will make it past the desk of Gov. Bill Graves. Graves has vetoed a similar bill in the past. Missouri voters turned down the chance to carry a concealed weapon in an election earlier this week. (AP Photo/Topeka capital-Journal, Chris Ochsner)
