Lawrence Knife Law Stymied by New State Law


LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Bar patrons soon will be able to bring their daggers, dirks and stilettos into drinking establishments and anyplace else in Lawrence, thanks to a new state law that goes into effect July 1. City commissioners were slated to hear Tuesday about how the law will nullify a longstanding city ordinance that made it illegal for people to carry certain types of knives inside the city limits. The Kansas Legislature passed a law this year aimed at creating a uniform set of regulations for firearms and knives across the state. The Lawrence Journal-World reports assistant city attorney Maria Kaminska says a city ordinance prohibiting people from bringing a concealed firearm into any city drinking establishment should be repealed because of that law.
