On Wednesday, March 24, Senate Bill 306 passed out of the House and will be returned to the Senate for concurrence. As written, this concealed carry reform bill would remove many redundant and burdensome provisions included in the current statute, allowing for a smoother issuing and renewal process. SB306 would also lower the initial application and renewal fee.
NRA has been working closely with the Kansas State Rifle Association (KSRA) and the Attorney General’s office to clean up and streamline the state’s concealed carry statute.
Also, House Bill 2685, after passing out of the House, will need to be passed out of Senate committee before moving to the Senate floor for consideration. This NRA-backed bill would loosen the requirements for postings on public buildings by requiring them to have security measures in place to ensure uniform public safety. Law-abiding citizens should not be prohibited from lawfully carrying a concealed firearm unless there is adequate security measures provided for their safety.
