Late Friday night, the Kansas Legislature adjourned from its 2018 Legislative Session. Unfortunately, House Bill 2042 was not brought up for consideration and died as a result.
House Bill 2042 sought 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.
Thank you to those NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who continued to contact their lawmakers in support of this important legislation. Stay tuned to NRA-ILA alerts for more information and other Second Amendment updates.
