Kansas City’s CBS affiliate reports:
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has brought his Jeep to another parade. This time, in Lecompton. The Jeep, which Kobach previously described as a “souped up Jeep with a replica gun,” caused some to be concerned at a parade in Shawnee last weekend.
Then, it sparked what Kobach called “outrage” after pictures of it began circulating on social media. He had said that weekend, “The outrage over the replica gun on the back of a patriotic jeep is the left trying to attack guns and your #2A rights. I will not back down in the face of a snowflake meltdown and outrage culture.”
Yesterday, we took the Jeep on a whirlwind tour for parades in LeCompton and Westmoreland and at a candidate meet and greet in Netawaka. Don’t believe the outrage of a few is the opinion of the rest of us. The Jeep is a celebrity. Lots of requests for photos with it. #ksleg #2A pic.twitter.com/rzOJYubpX3
