Kansas lawmakers move to block local gun regulations

KSAL StaffJanuary 28, 2015

Kansas lawmakers want to bar local governments from regulating the sale of firearms with new fees or taxes.

The Kansas House Federal and State Affairs Committee held a hearing on a bill Wednesday that would ban counties and municipalities from regulating gun sales through zoning or any new fees or taxes. The provision would still allow local governments to levy general sales taxes from gun sales.

State law already bans local governments from regulating firearms in most other ways. Gun lobbyist Patricia Stoneking testified that the bill would protect licensed firearm dealers from excessive regulation.

A second firearm bill heard by the committee Wednesday would prevent criminal penalties for licensed gun owners who accidentally bring guns into buildings where they are forbidden.
