Kansas: Legislation to Repeal Self-Defense Law Defeated by Senate Committee

Today, the Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs defeated Senate Bill 53 by a voice vote.  While this is fantastic news, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters can’t rest yet.  SB 53’s companion bill, House Bill 2074, is still scheduled for a hearing in the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs.  Please contact members of the committee and urge them to oppose House Bill 2074 when it comes up for a vote.

House Bill 2074 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.

Also being heard in the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs, is House Bill 2150.  HB 2150 would make it unlawful for individuals to carry a firearm for self-defense into the Kansas University Hospital.  This bill is a solution in search of a problem, and it places an arbitrary boundary on your right to self-defense.

If you are able to attend, please RSVP to show your opposition to these anti-self-defense bills. Please also contact members of the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs and urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 2074 and House Bill 2150 when they come up for a vote.
