Kansas: Contact Your State Legislators in Support of Pro-Gun Reforms
Posted on February 27, 2013
In a rare unanimous vote, the Kansas Senate voted yesterday to expand the rights of law-abiding gun owners in the Sunflower State. Senate Bill 21, introduced by the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee, would reform the state Right-to-Carry laws and strengthen the rights of Kansas’ law-abiding gun owners in several ways. This bill now goes to the Kansas House of Representatives where it will be assigned to a committee for further consideration.
As the Kansas Legislature finishes up the second week of its new session, a number of pro-gun reforms have already been introduced. Senate Bill 45, introduced by the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee, would save taxpayers money by prohibiting taxpayer funds from being used to lobby against legal products or to promote gun control. Also, House Bill 2055, introduced by the House Federal and State Affairs Committee, would allow law-abiding citizens to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense in any public buildings that lack adequate security. Both of these bills are awaiting further consideration in their respective committees and no hearings have been scheduled at this time.
