House Committee Discusses KS Open Carry Laws

(Photo via

A Kansas House committee is considering legislation that would take away the ability of local governments to restrict openly carrying firearms. Currently, some local governments have laws on the books that don't allow guns to be openly carried in public. Allan Rothlisberg, a Republican from Grandview Plaza, says the Second Amendment protects the practice.

But representatives of some communities say restricting open carry is legally permissible, and they want to keep it that way. Mike Taylor represents the Wyandotte County and Kansas City Unified Government.

The committee is scheduled to vote on the bill tomorrow (FRI).
