Gun Bill Moving Through KS Legislature

KSCB News - March 12, 2014 1:19 pm

A proposal to strip Kansas cities and counties of their power to regulate firearms is moving again through the Legislature after supporters stripped out two provisions preventing the state House from considering it.

The House Federal and State Affairs Committee rewrote the bill Wednesday and approved it a second time. The full House is likely to debate it by next week.

The committee had approved the bill in February, but the measure hadn’t come up for debate.

One reason was a provision allowing gun owners to carry loaded firearms in their vehicles statewide, instead of having the practice regulated by local ordinances. Law enforcement groups objected.

The second provision stripped from the bill would have allowed juveniles to possess firearms with the permission of parents or guardians.
