Kansas Counties Opt For Concealed Carry

Associated Press - November 19, 2013 7:51 am

A law taking effect Monday allows people with concealed-carry permits to bring their guns into public buildings.

Some local Kansas governments will follow a new state law allowing concealed carry of guns at public buildings because they don’t want to spend the money for added security measures required to keep the ban in place.

The Kansas Legislature passed legislation prohibiting many state and local government agencies from banning concealed guns on their premises unless they provide security measures. Counties and cities could get a six-month exemption from imposing the measure, but the extension expires Dec. 31.

Buildings can continue to be exempt if they have security measures.

But Melissa Wangemann, with the Kansas Association of Counties, says some counties can’t afford to install and staff screening equipment. Those counties plan to allow concealed guns.

Saline county is one of them. They care more about the third floor of the city county building than they do around our children attending 4H functions at the fairgrounds.
