Kansas: Senate Committee Could Soon Vote on Legislation to Repeal Self-Defense Law

Today, the Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs held a hearing on Senate Bill 53.  While no vote was taken at this time, it is important that NRA members and Second Amendment supporters continue to contact their state legislators and urge them to oppose Senate Bill 53 and its companion bill, House Bill 2074 when they come up for a vote.

Senate Bill 53 and House Bill 2074 seek 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.

Law-abiding Kansans who attend an institution of higher education deserve the same right to self-defense they are afforded off-campus.  Please click the “Take Action” button above to contact your state legislators and urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 53 and House Bill 2074 when they come up for a vote.
