U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Monday, the Kansas Legislature returns for a veto session, where they will consider overriding Governor Laura Kelly’s vetoes, which include two pro-gun bills. Please continue to contact your lawmakers and ask them to OVERRIDE Gov. Kelly’s vetoes of House Bill 2058 and House Bill 2089.

CLICK HERE TAKE ACTION!

Proposed by Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, House Bill 2058 does the following:

  • Recognizes all out-of-state concealed carry permits, and allows those who have been licensed to carry a firearm for self-defense, to do so lawfully in Kansas.  This legislation recognizes that visitors to Kansas should not be left defenseless simply by crossing a state line.
  • Allows individuals who are 18 to 20 years of age to apply for a Kansas concealed carry permit.
  • Authorizes the Attorney General to issue an alternative license to carry a concealed handgun, to qualified applicants, during a declared state of disaster emergency.
  • Creates a Restoration of Rights process for individuals to reestablish the Second Amendment right to possess a firearm, upon expungement of certain convictions.

*****

Substitute House Bill 2089 directs the state Board of Education to establish grade-appropriate curricula guidelines to teach firearm safety to K-12 students, based on NRA’s Eddie Eagle GunSafe program, and/or the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks & Tourism’s existing Hunter Education In Our Schools. Individual school district boards are to have the choice whether they wish to provide gun safety education under these standards. This gives the flexibility to school boards and parents to decide what gun safety education is appropriate for their communities and school children. Developing these standards by drawing from proven, existing programs results in cost savings for the taxpayers.

Again, please contact your lawmakers and ask them to OVERRIDE Governor Kelly’s vetoes of House Bill 2058 and House Bill 2089.

Two things wrong with HB2058.

1. I live in Missouri and no permit is required to carry concealed. I should be able to legally carry in Kansas as well.

2. Restoration of Rights should apply to those who have paid their debt to society and served their sentence. Not just to those whose conviction has been expunged.

I clicked here to take action and so should you. Even though we don’t live in that state, we may go to that state and honoring my CCW makes a difference. When I travel, I avoid states that don’t honor my two, soon to be three permits. If I have to go through them I do and I don’t spend a dime if I can avoid it when I drive through.
