Tomorrow, the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee is scheduled to consider House Bill 2042. In its current state, HB 2042 contains a hostile amendment from Rep. Clay Aurand that would place further restrictions on concealed carry at Universities that choose not to provide adequate security measures. Please contact members of the committee and strongly urge them to support House Bill 2042 WITHOUT Rep. Aurand’s amendment.
House Bill 2042 seeks to recognize all out-of-state concealed carry permits and allow those who have been licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense to do so lawfully in Kansas. HB 2042 was also amended by Rep. Brenda Landwehr to allow individuals who are 18 years of age and up to apply for a Kansas concealed carry permit.
Again, please contact members of the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee and strongly urge them to support House Bill 2042 WITHOUT Rep. Aurand’s hostile amendment.
