Wichita Approves Delay On Concealed Guns Law

KSAL StaffJune 19, 2013

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – The city of Wichita won’t allow people with permits to bring concealed firearms into public buildings until at least early next year.

A Kansas law taking effect July 1 allows people with concealed carry permits to take weapons into public buildings unless the buildings have adequate security in place.

But cities and counties can exempt their buildings for six months. The Wichita City Council voted 5-2 Tuesday for such an exemption.

Wichita officials say the delay will allow time to study the security needs for the more than 280 city owned buildings and properties.

The county commission in surrounding Sedgwick County is also considering a six-month exemption.
