U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, both Kansas and out-of-state law-abiding gun owners will be able to take advantage of pro-gun legislation that was passed into law during the Legislative Session, House Bill 2058.

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.
  • This measure went into effect today, July 1st. More information can be located on the Attorney General’s website.

Stay tuned to NRA-ILA Alerts for more information and updates on Second Amendment issues and action as they arise in the Sunflower State.

This is a perfect example of why I oppose National Reciprocity as it has been presented so far. It only covers those who have obtained a permit from their home state.

I live in Missouri, just over the state line from Kansas. In Missouri, we have Constitutional Carry, so I daily carry a concealed firearm without a permit and it’s 100% legal for me to do so.

I refuse to obtain a permit when my state does not require own just so I can carry legally in my neighboring state.

That makes it worth considering chasing tornadoes in the late spring, since I can exercise my right to self-defense there.

I definitely think you should chase tornadoes, get some nice close-up video, regardless of whether your victimhood status allows you to ask your master for permission to carry. Chase those big ones!

I doubt what you are engaged in is thinking.

You sound like an anonymous troll intent of provoking readers into displaying emotional responses, or manipulating their perception with your inflammatory, insincere, digressive, extraneous, and off-topic comment. Your denial, dishonesty, and deflection are indisputably incontrovertibly conspicuously crystal clear-cut. You spout the same old narrative of endless inbred bloggers playing the telephone game with factoids and never-do-well high school dropouts who never learned how to discipline their thinking with facts or logic.

If you need a concealed carry permit then Kansas is NOT a constitutional carry state. A constitutional carry state does not require a permit.

Not quite there. There were few if any “gun free” zones in 1989. A constitutional carry state would not be riddled with a patchwork quilt of “gun free” zones where good people can’t “legally” CARRY at all, permit or not, which is why hundreds of innocents die in places like Parkland, Pulse Nightclub, El Paso Mall, etc. It’s also why so many gun owners don’t carry even where they legally can due to hassle of planning & fear of being arrested or shot accidentally carrying “illegally”, a risk far more likely to destroy your life & family than the low… Read more »

I am just happy they recognize my concealed handgun license. Every responsible citizen should be issued a concealed carry license for free and it should be valid in every State in the union; just like a driver’s license.

Why? A license is permission to something that is otherwise illegal. The 2nd amendment’s SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED should be valid in every state just like it says.

Congress has the power to regulate and tax every thing with the power under Article 1, section 1. Under the Constitution, as many in the 2a community are quick to claim, everyone with arms is in the militia; which can be regulated, even if regulating commerce. Claiming you are militia gives them jurisdiction. They can conscript you into national service as a slave cleaning toilet, if Congress declares it necessary for public safety. Or just because under Butler v. Perry – 240 U.S. 328 (1916). Keep on denying that and you are just showing how much you are brainwashed and… Read more »

How many of us realize that today federal agents can invade a man’s property without a warrant? They can impose a fine without a formal hearing, let alone a trial by jury? And they can seize and sell his property at auction to enforce the payment of that fine. In Chico County, Arkansas, James Wier over-planted his rice allotment. The government obtained a 17,000 dollar judgment. And a U.S. marshal sold his 960-acre farm at auction. The government said it was necessary as a warning to others to make the system work. A Time for Choosing (aka “The Speech”) Air… Read more »

Kansas also is a constitutional carry state. It issues licenses to accommodate Kansans traveling to other states.

Kansas is a constitutional carry state, y’all. This just makes things even better if your 18-20 or from out of state.

I think it is cool that they are honoring my out of state card. I assume all states includes the ones that they don’t have reciprocity with like OreGONE> 18-20 can apply for a permit that is great.

I understand that a mother may I card is an infringement but at least this state is making a new allowance and headed in the right direction.

We need a new government that will recognize constitutional carry all across the US and implement it.

Happy Independence weekend from the shit hole of OreGONE, portland.

So, if they require permits of a 14 year old, that would be an infringement?

So SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED isn’t for Congress too? I guess the SUPREMACY clause of the Constituiton doesn’t apply to those psychopaths.

YET ANOTHER MEANINGLESS RANT FROM YOU: Article VI, Paragraph 2 of the U.S. Constitution is commonly referred to as the Supremacy Clause. It establishes that the federal constitution, and federal law generally, take precedence over state laws, and even state constitutions. It prohibits states from interfering with the federal government’s exercise of its constitutional powers, and from assuming any functions that are exclusively entrusted to the federal government. It does not, however, allow the federal government to review or veto state laws before they take effect. It DOES NOT limit the powers of Article 1, Section 8. READ the document before… Read more »

Congressional immunity refers to a special immunity that is granted to members of Congress. The following are the exemptions granted to the members of Congress under congressional immunity : 1. A Congress member is exempted from arrest while attending a session of the body to which the member belongs, excluding an arrest for treason, breach of the peace, or a felony, or; 2.A Congress member is exempted from arrest or interrogation for any speech or debate entered into during a legislative session. In In re Grand Jury, 821 F.2d 946 (3d Cir. Pa. 1987), it was held that congressional immunity… Read more »

Our first ten amendments are the precious cornerstone building blocks of freedoms and liberties inherent to all citizens.
The Bill of Rights are fundamental; Poll taxes were disallowed, remember?

Wrong. Cornerstones are the first stones laid in a building. The first stone was the Declaration of Independence. The second stone was the Articles of Confederation. The third stone was the Paris Peace Treaty ending the war. The fourth stone was the original Constitution. We became a nation without any amendments so you cannot claim they are a cornerstone. If the government is a pentagon, it is a pentagon of pimps and prostitutes. The Amendments were barely an afterthought and did not supplant the powers of Congress when there is a “compelling state interest.,” according to settled Constitutional Law. They… Read more »

“We?” Now you want to use a bandwagon fallacy? You stated a 14 year old should not be restricted. I asked a question rather than giving an opinion. At what point you are going to use common sense in restricting immature, irresponsible, criminal, or insane people from having lethal weapons. You are now engaging in denial, dishonesty, and deflection. As I can see, you have no common sense, so never claim to be a “we.” You just said yes to a two-year old with a machine gun. It is better to be thought a fool than to speak up and… Read more »

Tard cards are not Pro-Gun. They are gun registration and with a quick look to Indiana you can see the sheep running for the FREE Tard Card gun registration because Kool-Aid is wicked brew.
