Yesterday, the Kansas Legislature gave final approval to Emergency Powers Legislation, Senate Bill 40. The measure now heads to the desk of Governor Laura Kelly for her consideration. Please contact Governor Kelly and ask her to SIGN Senate Bill 40 into law.
Senate Bill 40 provides protections for gun stores, ranges, or any other entity that engages in the lawful selling or servicing of firearms, components, or accessories. SB 40 also prevents the prohibition, regulation, or seizure of citizens’ Second Amendment rights during a declared State of Emergency.
Also, the Kansas House will hold a final vote tomorrow on gun safety education legislation, Substitute House Bill 2089. Please continue to contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Substitute House Bill 2089.
Substitute House Bill 2089 directs the state Board of Education to establish grade-appropriate curricula guidelines to teach firearm safety to K-12 students based on NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program, and/or the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism’s existing Hunter Education In Our Schools. Individual school district boards are to have the choice whether they wish to provide gun safety education under these standards. This gives the flexibility to school boards and parents to decide what gun safety education is appropriate for their communities and school children. Developing these standards by drawing from proven, existing programs, results in cost savings for the taxpayers.
Again, please contact your State Representative and ask them to SUPPORT Substitute House Bill 2089.
