Last night, the Kansas House of Representatives concurred with the Senate on House Bill 2278. In an unprecedented move, the Senate declared an emergency final action on the bill in an attempt to ram the legislation through the process without much opportunity for further scrutiny or study. The bill was then sent to the House where it passed only two hours later.
This unnecessary anti-self-defense legislation now heads to the desk of Governor Sam Brownback for his consideration. Please immediately contact Governor Sam Brownback and strongly urge him to VETO House Bill 2278.
House Bill 2278 would make it unlawful for individuals to carry a firearm for self-defense into a state or municipal-owned medical care facility, including the Kansas University Hospital. In addition, HB 2278 would prevent the lawful carry of a firearm into community health centers and state or municipal-owned adult care homes. This bill is a solution in search of a problem, and it places an arbitrary boundary on your right to self-defense.
Again, it is urgent that you contact Governor Sam Brownback at 785-296-3232 and strongly urge him to VETO HB 2278.
