Governor To Sign Gun Law

KSAL StaffApril 1, 2015

Gov. Sam Brownback plans to sign a bill allowing Kansas residents to carry concealed firearms without a permit.

The Republican governor’s office scheduled a signing ceremony for Thursday afternoon at the Statehouse. Legislators approved the measure last week.

The new law takes effect July 1.

The National Rifle Association says Kansas will become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere within its borders.

Kansas still will issue permits for gun owners who want to carry concealed in other states that recognize Kansas permits. A person seeking a Kansas permit must undergo eight hours of firearms training.

Supporters of the bill said gun owners have shown they can be trusted to carry concealed.

Critics of the measure say the state should require some training to carry concealed.
