Kansas: Permitless Carry Legislation to be Heard in Senate Committee Tomorrow

Tomorrow morning, at 10:30 A.M., the Kansas Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee will hold a hearing on Senate Bill 45, NRA-backed permitless carry legislation.

Authored by Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce (R-34), SB 45 recognizes Kansans’ freedom to legally carry a concealed firearm without the burdensome requirement of acquiring a Kansas concealed carry handgun license (CCHL).  This is a necessary update to concealed carry in Kansas, allowing law-abiding gun owners the ability to better protect themselves and their loved ones.  In Kansas, it is already legal to carry a firearm openly, as long as the individual is not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm.  However, under current law, if a firearm becomes covered by a coat or if a woman prefers to carry a firearm for self-protection in her purse, he or she would need to possess a CCHL. 

This permitless carry legislation gives Kansans the freedom to choose the best method of carrying for them, based on their attire, gender and/or physical attributes.  SB 45 has already received the support of 26 cosponsors.

Using the contact information provided below, it is critical that you contact members of the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee and politely request their support for Senate Bill 45 when it comes before them tomorrow.
