Gun Legislation To Be Debated In Kansas House
03/13/2013

The Kansas House is preparing to debate two measures backed by gun rights advocates.
 
     One bill on the House's debate calendar Wednesday would allow school districts and state colleges to designate employees who could carry concealed firearms inside their buildings, even if such weapons were banned for others.
 
     The measure also would expand the number of public buildings where people with a state permit could bring concealed weapons. State law now generally bans concealed weapons in courthouses and other public buildings where officials post notices.
 
     Another bill up for debate declares that the federal government can't regulate firearms manufactured, sold and kept in Kansas.
 
     The measures are a reaction to discussions about new gun-control measures by federal officials in the wake of December's mass school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
