Kansas Right to Carry Reform Bill Becomes Law

Monday, May 17, 2010

Please Thank Governor Parkinson!

On Monday, May 17, Governor Mark Parkinson (D) signed Senate Bill 306, a comprehensive Right-to-Carry reform bill.  NRA worked 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.  The bill will remove many of the redundant and burdensome provisions in statute and will allow for a much smoother issuing and renewal process.  SB306 will also lower the initial application and renewal fee.  For an overview of the bills many changes please see below.

Please contact Governor Parkinson and your state legislators to thank them for their hard work and support for SB 306.  To see if your state representative voted for this legislation please click here.  The senate voting record can be found here.  To contact your legislator please click here.
