    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE #29
    GOVERNOR SIGNS BILLS AND
    BILL SUMMARIES APRIL 16, 2013


    Finally, here it is! A comprehensive summary of the new legislation passed this session including the voting record. Please keep in mind that none of these new laws will go in to effect until July 1, 2013.

    I've included summaries on HB 2111 and SB 45 which have not completed the process at this time. All other bills have been signed by the Governor!

    This has been a great year and I'm very proud of the work that has been accomplished! Thank you to all of those who answered the call to attend hearings, send emails and make phone calls to rally for these bills!

    Yours In Freedom,
    Patricia Stoneking
    KSRA President



    SB 102 (formerly HB 2199)
    The Second Amendment Protection Act

    SB 102 excludes any personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas from federal regulation. The bill provides that for as long as any such personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition remains within the borders of Kansas, it is not subject to any federal law, regulation, or authority.

    Additionally, this bill prevents any federal agent or contracted employee, any state employee, or any local authority from enforcing any federal regulation or law governing any personal firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured commercially or privately and owned in Kansas, provided it remains within the borders of Kansas.

    The manufacturing exemption from federal law for Made in Kansas guns does NOT apply to fully automatic firearms. It DOES apply to all accessories such as suppressors.

    This bill allows a county or district attorney or the Attorney General to seek injunctive relief in court to enjoin federal officials from enforcing federal law regarding a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately and owned in the state of Kansas and that remains within the borders of Kansas.

    Violation of this law is a severity level 10 nonperson felony. In the process of a criminal prosecution, the bill precludes any arrest or detention prior to a trial for a violation of the Act.

    While this law will go in to effect on July 1, 2013 please be advised that we fully expect to receive a cease and desist letter from the ATF telling Kansas that we cannot act upon the manufacturing provisions of this law. It is our intent to fight that in court. We'll keep you posted on this.

    SENATE SUBSTITUTE HB 2052
    The Mega Gun Bill

    This bill is a bundle that includes language from HB 2052, HB 2055, HB 2098, SB 186, SB 157 and SB 158.

    Sen Sub HB 2052 provides exemptions for when a firearm may be discharged lawfully within or in to the city limits and preempts the possibility of being charged under a city ordinance when the discharge is lawful under this state law. If the firearm is discharged in lawful defense of one's person, another person or one's property or against an animal attack then it is lawful. It also provides protection for discharging guns at private or public shooting ranges or to lawfully take wildlife or for the discharge of blanks such is done at sporting events.

    This bill provides for corrections officers (state and federal) and parole officers to receive the same exemption from concealed carry training classes that is currently given to law enforcement officers. It did eliminate the state fee discount for LEO and now all will pay the same $132.50. It also adds LEO's from other states and qualified retired LEO's to a list of individuals exempted from the law that prohibits the carrying of a firearm and allows them to possess handguns within buildings where concealed carry may be prohibited.

    This bill eliminates the criminal penalty for accidentally entering a building that is posted with the NO CCH signs. It will no longer be a crime and the only result is being asked to leave. If asked to leave you must comply or you can be charged with Criminal Trespass.

    This bill modifies the Personal and Family Protection Act to allow possession of firearms on certain city, county, state and municipal buildings. It does exclude school districts and the State Capitol from that definition. It requires that there must be adequate security measures at public entrances in order to prohibit the carry of a firearm in to that building.

    This bill prevents a state agency or municipality from prohibiting a licensed employee from carrying a concealed handgun at the employee's workplace unless the building has adequate security measures and personnel policies to prohibit it.

    It provides that it will not be a violation of the provisions in the bill for a licensed person to carry a concealed handgun through a restricted access entrance into a state or municipal building with adequate security measures.

    The bill provides liability protections for entities allowing concealed carry in state or municipal buildings.

    The bill allows corrections facilities, jail facilities, or law enforcement agencies to prohibit the carrying of handguns or firearms, concealed or unconcealed, into the secured areas of such buildings, except any other area of such building, outside a secured area and readily accessible to the public, shall be subject to provisions in the bill.

    It permits the chief judge of each judicial district to prohibit the carrying of a concealed handgun into courtrooms or ancillary courtrooms within the district provided other means of security are employed.

    It allows the governing body or chief administrative officer of any state or municipal building to exempt the building for four years, subject to developing a plan for security measures and filing notification of the exemption.

    It provides a specific four-year exemption for any state or municipal building if the governing body or chief administrative officer follows specified procedures for exempting certain entities identified in the bill: public medical care facilities, public
    adult care homes, community mental health centers, indigent health care clinics, and post-secondary educational institutions.

    It permits school districts, post-secondary educational institutions, public medical care facilities, public adult care homes, community mental health centers, and indigent health care clinics to allow a licensed employee to concealed carry a
    handgun if the employee meets the entity's general policy requirements and if the entity does not have a personnel policy prohibiting employees from concealed carry of a handgun.

    It excludes the buildings of the Kansas School for the Blind and School for the Deaf from application for a designated institutional exemption.

    It removes a specific listing of buildings in current law where concealed carrying is prohibited and inserts the new phrase "any building".

    It strikes language prohibiting the possession of a firearm on the grounds of certain government buildings, including the State Capitol, and retains existing law prohibiting "open carry" in state and municipal buildings.

    It exempts the State Capitol from provisions of the bill on and after July 1, 2014, and allows a licensee to carry a concealed handgun in the State Capitol, unless the Legislative Coordinating Council determines the Statehouse does have adequate security measures.

    This bill strengthens the prohibition on releasing the records of permit holders.

    It provides liability protections regarding concealed carry for private businesses either allowing or prohibiting concealed carry in private buildings.

    SB 21
    Amendments to the PFPA

    SB 21 clarifies that the expungement of a prior felony conviction does not relieve the individual of complying with any state or federal law relating to the use, shipment, transportation, receipt, or possession of firearms by a person previously
    convicted of a felony.

    It authorizes official recognition of any valid concealed carry permit from another state for individuals traveling through or visiting Kansas.

    It requires issuance of a 180-day receipt from the Attorney General for a new Kansas resident who possesses a permit from another state and who is required to obtain a Kansas license. This receipt is required to be carried along with the
    license from the original jurisdiction. The license from the original jurisdiction has to meet or exceed the Kansas requirements for concealed carry. Prior to the expiration of the 180-day receipt, the applicant needs to provide proof of training to the Attorney General's Office. Following a successful background check and receipt of documentation and fees, the application is approved for a Kansas concealed permit.

    HB 2030
    Wounded Warrior Deer Permits

    HB 2030 authorizes the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism to make available not more than ten wounded warrior deer permits (primarily nonresident) each calendar year. These wounded warrior deer permits will be available to disabled veterans who sustained injuries in combat and have a service-connected disability of not less than 30 percent. The Department will conduct a random drawing if the number of eligible individuals exceeds the number of authorized deer permits. Individuals awarded these permits will pay the price for the deer permit established by rules and regulations for the highest value for the type of permit awarded. These wounded warrior permits will be subject to the restrictions of the season, sex, equipment type, or hunt units as issued on the deer permits.

    HB 2033
    Uniform State Law for Knives

    HB 2033 prohibits municipalities from regulating the transportation, possession, carrying, sales, transfers, purchases, gifting, licensing, registration, or uses of a knife or knife-making components. In addition, the bill prohibits a municipality from passing any ordinance, resolution, or rule that would be more restrictive regarding knife manufacturing than the manufacture of any other commercial product. The bill amends provisions related to the criminal use of weapons and criminal carrying of a weapon by removing certain types of knives, as well as by eliminating certain exceptions for
    carrying specific types of pocket knives and switchblade knives. The bill also excludes from the definition of "municipality," school districts, jails, and juvenile correctional facilities.

    HB 2111
    Statewide Preemption Law

    HB 2111, as amended, would prohibit cities and counties from adopting ordinances, resolutions, or regulations regarding firearms, including the open carrying of firearms. The bill also would specify that it is unlawful to carry a firearm within any municipal building that has adequate security measures to ensure no weapons may be carried into the building and has conspicuously posted at each entrance the appropriate signage stating firearms are prohibited within such building. School districts and postsecondary institutions would be excluded from the meaning of "municipality" for purposes of this bill. In addition, the bill would prohibit the possession of firearms by a minor, except as otherwise provided in current
    law. An additional exception regarding possession at private shooting ranges would be added to current law listing
    exceptions permitted. An existing ban on open carrying of firearms on the grounds of certain prohibited places also would be removed in a current law addressing the Capitol Complex.

    This bill has passed the House Committee with a favorable recommendation; however, it is unlikely to be voted on this session. This bill will be held over and complete the process during the 2014 legislative session.

    SB 45
    Prohibition on Lobbying Against
    Firearms Using Taxpayer Funds

    SB 45, as amended, would prohibit the use of state appropriated money for gun control advocacy purposes. The bill would specify the prohibition to include advocacy for any proposed, pending, or future federal, state, or local tax increase, or requirement or restriction on any legal consumer product, including its sale or marketing. The prohibition is detailed as follows:

    For publicity or propaganda purposes relating to the advocacy or promotion of gun control, prohibited activities would include: the preparation, distribution, or use of any kit, publication, electronic communication, or radio, television, or video
    presentation before the federal or a local government or before the state Legislature. The bill would exempt these uses in the cases of normal and recognized executive and legislative relationships. The language would further specify that what would be prohibited would be any such material designed to support or defeat any proposed or pending regulation, administrative action, or order issued by the federal government, any state agency, or local government relating to gun control advocacy or promotion. To pay the salary or expenses of any grant or contract recipient, or agent acting on behalf of a recipient, regarding any activity designed to influence enactment of gun control advocacy related legislation, appropriation, regulation, administrative action, or executive order at the federal, state, or local governing body levels.

    This bill is still in conference committee but we believe that it will be voted on during the veto session which begins May 8, 2013.

    Sounds good. Now, how long will it take them to define adequate security measures?

    The OP is just a summary of the new statutes. If you read the actual statute they define what "adequate security measures" are.

    I like the new laws.

    The knife law is very nice. You can after July 1st 2013 carry anything with a blade open or concealed.

    Also not all of the bills in the OP passed this session.

    Take a look at the knife bill if you're interested.
