Please Thank the Governor Today! 

Today, Monday, April 21, Governor Kathleen Sebelius (D) signed two important pro-gun bills into law.

The first,
House Bill 2280, will protect law-abiding gun owners’ right to bear arms, and would prevent the confiscation of firearms during a state of
emergency, such as occurred following Hurricane Katrina and after the tornado devastation in Greensburg.  

Also signed was Senate Bill 46, legislation that will allow Kansas firearm retailers, manufacturers, importers and citizens qualified under the National Firearms Act to sell, manufacture, import and own NFA firearms.

Special thanks to State Representatives Candy Ruff (D-40), Richard Carlson (R-61), Dennis McKinney (D-116), Mike Burgess (R-51), Arlen Siegfreid (R-15), Majority Leader Ray Merrick (R-27), State Senators Phil Journey (R-26), Terry Bruce (R-34), and Dennis Wilson (R-37) for their individual efforts to get these important bills enacted.
