AG Schmidt Releases Proposed Open-Carry Signage
06/20/2014

TOPEKA – (June 20, 2014) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today released his proposal for signage that may be used to restrict the carrying of firearms – open, concealed or both – into buildings, in compliance with a new law passed by the Kansas Legislature earlier this year.

 

“After consulting with representatives of affected groups, and gathering their input, our office is proposing a set of signs that will make clear to gun owners what is and isn’t allowed in individual buildings,” Schmidt said. “The stakeholders asked for the signs to be as simple and clear as possible and also wanted to minimize the need for buildings already posted with a no-guns sign to change their existing signage. We believe these signs accomplish that and comply with the legislature’s intent.”

 

The proposed signs do not yet have the force of law. Along with the accompanying temporary regulations, the proposed signs were submitted this week to the State Rules and Regulations Board for approval. If approved, these regulations would take effect July 1. Schmidt also submitted proposed permanent regulations adopting the signs. The public will have the opportunity to offer comments on the proposed permanent regulations for at least 60 days. A public hearing on the proposed permanent regulations will also be announced at a later time.

 

The proposed signs and regulations are available on the attorney general’s website at www.ag.ks.gov.
