Kris Kobach Defends Parade Jeep Outfitted With Replica Machine Gun
A city in Kansas apologized after GOP governor candidate Kris Kobach rode in a vehicle outfitted with what looked like a machine gun during a weekend parade.
Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state, rode in Shawnee’s parade in a red, white and blue Jeep that had a replica of a loaded machine gun mounted on it. He proudly tweeted photos of his ride, saying, “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
But others criticized the display of firepower in a parade that children were watching.
