Kansas Conceal Carry Changes Begin July 1

conceal-carry-signTOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A state law taking effect today (MON) expands the Kansas concealed carry law. It makes changes to the regulations first passed in 2007 that allow licensed permit holders in more public places that lack adequate security measures. Senator Forrest Knox is the chief architect of the new regulations and foresees little trouble implementing the changes. They apply to hundreds of public venues statewide. Starting today (MON), licensed concealed carry permit holders will be allowed to bring their weapons into state and municipal buildings, except where cities or counties have requested a six-month exemption to develop security plans. Those exemptions will last through 2017. By that time adequate security must be in place or access is permitted. Several municipalities have notified the attorney general's office that they'll seek exemptions, which require new signage.
