Kansas: Governor Brownback Signs Pro-Gun Bill into Law

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Today, Governor Sam Brownback (R) signed House Bill 2052 into law.  This new law takes effect on July 1, 2013.

HB 2052 will make the following pro-gun improvements in Kansas:

  • Exempts the lawful discharge of firearms—whether for hunting or self-defense—from criminal prosecution.
  • Requires that government and public buildings that prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms for self-defense must screen all visitors for weapons.  This would ensure that ALL individuals who enter the buildings are disarmed, not just the law-abiding citizens who choose to follow the law.  If a building lacks the adequate security measures necessary to screen all visitors, then residents with a concealed carry license would be allowed to carry a firearm to protect themselves while visiting that particular building.
  • Makes the personal information of concealed carry license applicants confidential and exempt from Freedom of Information Act requests.
  • Exempts law enforcement officers from the training requirements necessary to obtain a concealed carry license.
  • Authorizes school officials to allow staffers and visitors to carry a concealed handgun for self-defense.

The NRA thanks Governor Brownback for enacting this important reform in the Sunflower State.
