House and Senate Override <br> Governor Sebelius' Veto: <br> Kansas Passes Right-to-Carry

Thursday, March 23, 2006

(Fairfax, VA) – Both the Kansas State Senate and House of Representatives voted to override Governor Sebelius’ veto of the National Rifle Association (NRA)-backed Right-to-Carry legislation, Senate Bill 418, “The Personal and Family Protection Act.”

 “After 12 years, it took a collective, bi-partisan effort to win this fight.  Kansas now joins 46 other states who enjoy some form of Right-to-Carry,” NRA Chief Lobbyist Chris W. Cox declared.

 The Kansas State Senate voted 30-10 to override Governor Sebelius’ veto of the Right-to-Carry legislation.  Less than a day later, the Kansas House of Representatives voted 91-33 to sustain the override.

 Cox continued, “We want to recognize the steadfast support of several state leaders.  Without their hard work, Kansans would still be deprived of this valuable law.  Senator Phil Journey, Representative Candy Ruff, and Representative Gary Hayzlett worked tirelessly on this measure and we thank them.”

 Kansas becomes the 47th state with some form of Right-to-Carry.  There are now three states that do not allow any form of Right-to-Carry; Nebraska, Illinois and Wisconsin have yet to pass such self-defense legislation.

 “As always, we appreciate the commitment and participation of our members in Kansas for helping pass this legislation and helping override the Governor’s veto of this self-defense law,” concluded Cox.
