U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Governor Laura Kelly has vetoed two pro-gun bills that were previously passed with an overwhelming majority from both chambers of the Kansas Legislature. Both measures will head back to the legislature where your lawmakers will vote to OVERRIDE Governor Kelly’s veto. It is imperative that you contact your Lawmakers and ask them to OVERRIDE Governor Laura Kelly’s Veto of House Bill 2058 and House Bill 2089.
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.
