Today, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback signed House Bill 2491 into law. This important self-defense and hunting reform will allow hunters, fishermen, and fur harvesters to carry a handgun in the field. HB 2491 passed in the state Senate unanimously on March 15 and in the House by an overwhelming 113 to 8 vote in February. HB 2491 is a commonsense bill that will allow an individual to carry a handgun for personal protection while hunting, fishing or trapping as long as that firearm is not used for the unauthorized taking of wildlife. This bill simply allows sportsmen the ability to adequately defend themselves from a variety potential threats posed by wildlife or criminals. Thank you to Governor Brownback for signing into law HB 2491 and to the legislators who voted for HB 2491. Also, thank you to all NRA members who contacted their state Senator and Representative in support of HB 2491.
