Kansas Lawmakers Pass Bill Nullifying City, County Gun Restrictions

Kansas Lawmakers Pass Bill Nullifying City, County Gun Restrictions

On April 5 Kansas lawmakers passed a bill nullifying city and county gun restrictions to “ensure that it’s legal across the state to openly carry firearms.”

The legislation passed 102-19 in the House and 37-2 in the Senate.

According to USA Today, Kansas law “does not expressly forbid the open carrying of firearms” but the state attorney general has held that some restrictions are allowable in the past. “The Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., …[bans] the practice, but the [legislation passed Saturday] would sweep any such ban away.”

The legislation only leaves room for cities and counties to ban “openly carried [firearms] inside public buildings.”

The bill now heads to Governor Sam Brownback (R), one of the most pro-gun governors in the country.
