Kansas: Senate Committee to Consider Legislation to Repeal Self-Defense Law

The anti-gun attack on your right to defend yourself continues as the year progresses.  As previously reported, House Bill 2074 was introduced and seeks to repeal current Kansas law that would allow law-abiding individuals to carry a concealed firearm on college campuses for self-defense if the public university chooses not to provide adequate security.

Senate Bill 53 was introduced as the Senate mirror to House Bill 2074 and has been scheduled for a hearing on Thursday, January 26 at 10:30am.  This legislation would prevent individuals from being able to effectively defend themselves on college campuses as well as other government buildings.

Law-abiding Kansans who attend an institution of higher education deserve the same right to self-defense they are afforded off-campus.  It is important for members and Second Amendment supporters to contact their state legislators and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 2074 and Senate Bill 53 when they come up for a vote.
