Kansas: “Shall Certify” Legislation Passes Senate, Returns to House for Concurrence

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Yesterday, House Bill 2578 passed unanimously in the Kansas Senate.  It is now returning to the Kansas House of Representatives, where it will likely face a conference committee.  HB 2578, authored by state Representative Richard Carlson (R-61) and sponsored by the House Federal and State Affairs Committee, would require a chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) to sign off on an application to transfer an item regulated by the National Firearms Act, including short barreled rifles/shotguns and suppressors, within fifteen days, as long as the applicant is not prohibited by law from receiving the item.

Under current law, a CLEO may refuse to sign off for any reason, including their own personal feelings toward NFA-related items, which has created issues for law-abiding citizens.  HB 2578 would bring the CLEO signoff process in line with the standard that sheriffs in Kansas are already using when signing off on a concealed carry permit.  By removing any possibility of personal bias, which may reside behind many CLEO's refusing to sign off, and creating a statewide standard, HB 2578 protects the rights of law-abiding gun owners across the Sunflower State.

The NRA thanks Kansas Senators for supporting this important pro-gun legislation.  Please thank your state Senator for voting for HB 2578.  Contact information for your state Senator can be found here.
