The House and Senate successfully passed legislation, House Bill 2528, correcting several problems in the Concealed Carry legislation that was passed the previous session. This legislation will prevent local municipalities from passing ordinances prohibiting concealed carry that are more stringent than state law. That was the intent of the legislature from the beginning, but unfortunately certain groups and entities took it upon themselves to purposely misinterpret the language of the bill and pass restrictive ordinances banning concealed carry. Fortunately the legislature was successful in not only passing a bill to correct this problem, but also in overriding the Governor, who continues to show her distrust of Kansas citizens by vetoing her third Right-to-Carry bill. Also in Kansas, Senate Bill 192 was passed to allow mentored hunting. The bill allows for licensed hunters at least 18 years of age to take out another individual for a mentored hunting experience. They are allowed to bypass hunter education for one year after which time they will be required to pass the required hunter education course to purchase a hunting license.
