KS Passes Resolution Limiting Governor’s Emergency Powers to Seize Ammo and Property

NRA-ILM KS
NRA-ILM reports that HCR 5025 no longer allows authorities to restrict the Second Amendment.

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The NRA-ILA just announced that the previously worrisome Kansas bill HCR 5025, has been amended to include language that limits the emergency powers of the KS state government. Previously, the bill could have been interpreted to allow authorities to restrict the sale and transportation of firearms, as well as confiscate arms and ammunition during the coronavirus pandemic. Thankfully this was remedied and the changes subsequently approved on Thursday. More information below from the NRA-ILA.

“Late Thursday night, the Kansas Legislature passed House Committee Resolution 5025. This measure prevents Governor Laura Kelly from using emergency powers to seize ammunition or limit the sale of firearms during the current Covid 19 outbreak. HCR 5025 was overwhelmingly supported in both the House and the Senate. Thank you to those legislators who voted in favor of this important legislation.

The Legislature has now officially adjourned and is planning to reconvene on April 27th. Your NRA-ILA will continue to monitor this and keep you updated on any changes.

Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts for more information on issues affecting your Second Amendment rights.​”

The change came in the form of the following clause being added to HCR 5025:

Be it further resolved: That, for the purposes of this ratification, the Governor shall not have the power or authority to temporarily or permanently seize, or authorize seizure of, any ammunition or to suspend or limit the sale, dispensing or transportation of firearms or ammunition pursuant to K.S.A. 2019 Supp. 48-925(c)(8) or any other
executive authority.

This is great news for supporters of the Second Amendment, as any legislation that clearly defines the limits of a government's power as it applies to firearms is a good thing. Especially with all the abuse of power occurring across America in the wake of the CORVID-19 outbreak.

Anyone notice the KS bill says, as presented above, they cannot seize ammo, but does not mention restricting seizure of firearms. Dubious wording.

@OV, Lots of Texans want to, but I think we better remain the United States and get ready for hot war with the Chinese.

Well would someone like NRA-ILA please come to maryland and stomp these asshats when they try the same thing? This situation is going to kill my 32 year marriage. My wife has become blind to evil. For a girl who grew up in the backwoods of WV she sure has swallowed the socialist bait hook,line and sinker. Walt, her grandfather would smack her.
I’ve lost my wife to the matrix

Bill . . . Good luck with that one! I also have lost my 50 year old son to the propaganda drivel of the Communist Democrap Party and the Communist Lamestream Media! What really buzzes my head is that he is an intelligent man who can think for himself!

Nobody — It’s not about one’s intelligence, but is instead about one’s emotions. This is what the left is tapping into, and how they battle against our use of logic. You can do the same thing, but in the opposite direction by brushing up on some of the more inspiring stories of the American Revolution, and how it was access to firearms, along with a willingness to use them, that saved this country from becoming just another British territory in service to the Queen. There are many such stories out there about how a firearm saved entire families, even maybe… Read more »

Bill — You’re not alone. I lost mine in 2011 after 23 years together, to the same thing. She became more and more Democratic in her thinking, even joining a religious cult, which led her to becoming more disjointed in her thinking. I still believe to this day that she did it just to spite me. Not much you can when it comes to this, for everyone is their own person. I will say this about it though, I now live in a much calmer situation, because she’s not ridding my back anymore. In the end you will do what’s… Read more »

Democratic Socialists supported by Bloomberg money are employing a piece meal, state legislature by state legislature strategy. Actively support your state’s most pro-2A organizations, especially those heavily engaged in lobbying at your state legislature. First and foremost, defend your home turf. Don’t depend on any national organization to come to the rescue. “Neither the state nor any county, city, etc. can grab your guns by declaring an emergency.
