WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Two Kansas anti-abortion groups are distancing themselves from comments from another abortion foe suggesting the state's new concealed carry law could increase the threat of shootings outside a Wichita clinic.

Mark Gietzen, chairman of the Kansas Coalition for Life, said in a recent release the threat of shootings at South Wind Women's Center in Wichita was enhanced by the Republican-led Legislature's adoption of a conceal-and-carry law.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19k28Xs ) Gietzen says an influx of advocates with concealed guns around the clinic means homes could ``continuously be in the line of fire.''

Operation Rescue and Kansans for Life say while they're working with KCFL to get Wichita to rezone the site of the clinic, they don't agree with Gietzen's comments, which they say aren't appropriate for the re-zoning effort.
