Kansas Capitol Police Worry About Concealed Guns Law

KSAL StaffDecember 18, 2013

Police at the Kansas Statehouse have told legislative leaders that they worry about a new law that allows lawmakers to carry concealed guns in the building.

Sgt. Terry Golightley said Wednesday that the Capitol Police worry the policy will lead to problems if there’s an incident.

House Majority Leader Jene Vickrey said he doesn’t worry about legal permit holders.

Top legislators met to discuss security as the state finishes a renovation of the building.

They haven’t yet decided whether visitors can carry concealed weapons into the Statehouse. They must decide by July under a law enacted earlier this year.

But the same law allows legislators to carry concealed weapons in the Statehouse, regardless of the policy for visitors. Previously, concealed guns had been banned in state buildings.
