Conceal Carry Bill To Come Before KS Legislature

KSCB News - February 6, 2015 8:24 am

The Kansas Senate is considering a bill that would allow officials to prohibit concealed weapons in some areas of public buildings.

Currently, people carrying concealed weapons must be allowed to go anywhere in public buildings where the guns are allowed.

Legislation submitted by Republican Sen. Forrest Knox of Altoona would allow officials to ban weapons from some parts of the buildings.

Knox says courthouses in some rural counties want to be able to secure parts of the buildings, such as courtrooms, while the rest of the building would remain open to concealed weapons.
