Permitless Conceal Carry Passes House

KSAL StaffMarch 25, 2015

The Kansas House has approved a bill that would allow gun owners to carry concealed firearms without a permit.

The vote Wednesday was 85-39. The bill passed by a healthy margin even though some members have misgivings that the state would no longer require training to carry concealed.

The Senate passed the measure last month, but the House made a technical change in committee that senators have to review.

The measure is expected to go eventually to GOP Gov. Sam Brownback. The National Rifle Association says Kansas would become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere within its borders.

The House also voted 100-24 to pass a bill prohibiting cities and counties from imposing special fees and taxes on guns or gun sales.
