Kansas Legislature Overrides Governor Sebelius’ Veto of Vital Right to Carry Reform Legislation

Friday, April 27, 2007

Fairfax, VA - The Kansas State Senate, today voted (30 to 10) to override Governor Kathleen Sebelius’ veto of vital legislation that would allow law-abiding Kansans to protect themselves outside the home. 

The House of Representatives voted to override the Governors veto yesterday, by a vote of 98 to 26. 
 
House Bill 2528 will prevent cities and counties from adopting any ordinance or regulation that would contradict state firearms law.  The legislation would also prohibit a public or private entity from prohibiting a licensed Right-to-Carry permit holder from possessing a firearm, when locked inside a private motor vehicle in a publicly accessible parking lot.

HB 2528 is designed to stop the “patchwork” city firearm regulations and ordinances that have been popping up all over Kansas in the last year. 

“This NRA backed legislation will ensure that law-abiding Kansans will no longer have to worry about breaking any city or county laws while traveling through Kansas, said NRA chief lobbyist, Chris Cox.  We are very pleased that this legislation withstood the Governor’s veto and will become law.”    

“No one is immune to criminal attacks outside of their home,” continued Cox.   “This bill is about protecting a law-abiding, citizen’s right to self-defense anywhere outside their home.” 

The legislation originally passed the House on March 21, 2007 and the Senate on March 27, 2007. Governor Sebelius vetoed the legislation on April 13, 2007.
