A state law taking effect Monday expands the Kansas concealed carry law. It makes changes to the regulations first passed in 2007 that allow licensed permit holders in more public places that lack adequate security measures.
Senator Forrest Knox is the chief architect of the new regulations and foresees little trouble implementing the changes. They apply to hundreds of public venues statewide.
Starting Monday, licensed concealed carry permit holders will be allowed to bring their weapons into state and municipal buildings, except where cities or counties have requested a six-month exemption to develop security plans.
