The Supplemental Note written by legislative research
The bill will:
- Allow persons age 21 or over may carry concealed firearms without a permit.
-Provided the person is not otherwise prohibited from possessing a firearm by state or federal law.
-This applies to all firearms, not just handguns.
- The owner of a building may still post it according to the rules set by the Attorney General to prohibit carrying of concealed firearm in the building.
-It appears the rules for public buildings will remain unchanged.
- Concealed carry licenses will still be issued pretty much the same as they are now.
-Permit holders will not be required to carry the permit nor show it to law enforcement.
- KSA 21-6301 subsection (a)(11) restricting possession of a firearm on any K-12 school grounds or property will no longer apply to any person carrying a concealed handgun unless they are prohibited from possession of a firearm by a state or federal law. This is done by amending KSA 21-6301 subsection (i)(5). Open carry and possession of long barrel firearms would still be illegal under state law. Age is not mentioned in this section, but a person under the age of 21 carrying a concealed firearm would still be in violation under the amended KSA 21-6302.
- Amends KSA 21-6309 which regulates firearms in the Capital Complex and other state property, generally making concealed carry legal. I am not clear on how the current prohibitions in building will apply.
Other amendments are made to make the key provisions consistent with other laws.
Additional information will be posted as it becomes available.
