Pro-Gun Advancements Being Made in Kansas!

Friday, March 23, 2007

 

Please Contact Your State Legislators Today!


In Kansas this week, the House passed House Bill 2528, the clean-up bill for the Right-to-Carry legislation that passed last year.  This bill addresses the problems that began to occur last year, before the law even took effect, when cities misinterpreted language in the original bill and believed that they could pass ordinances more stringent than state law to ban permit holders from certain areas.  This bill passed the House by a vote of 107-17.  The tremendous bipartisan support for this legislation will hopefully carry over to the Senate and speed this bill along before the session ends. 

 

Please contact your State Representative at (800) 432-3924 and thank him or her for their support of this critical legislation.  Also please contact your State Senator at (785) 296-2456 and respectfully urge him or her to vote for HB 2528.

 

Also passing was Senate Bill 189, which will allow for a mentored hunting program to be implemented by the Department of Natural Resources.  Mentored hunting allows first time hunters to earn a 1-year deferment, through the hunter safety course, to purchase a license and participate in mentored hunts with an adult.  After the end of that year’s hunting season, they may then take the hunter safety course and purchase a regular license.  Research has shown this is one of the safest ways to expose new hunters to hunting and give them a real sense of the experience in a supervised environment. 

Please contact your Senator at (785) 296-2456 and thank them for their support of this legislation.
