U.S.A. -( 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.

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.


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!


Small wins + small wins = large gains. Let’s take the win for Kansas!


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 »

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.

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.


permits = infringements


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


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?


If Kris Kobach was governor, it would’ve been permitless carry. None of this incremental pussyfooting.


Pinch it off, Schart. You know F all about it.


That’s cute, JKS…. you just described yourself PERFECTLY!

take seat, junior.
