Kansas: Pro-Gun Legislation Dies as Legislature Adjourns

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.
