    Kansas A Gold Star Open Carry State?

    Below is an overview of new legislation that will be submitted in the 2014 Kansas Legislature. This was posted by President of the Kansas State Rifle Association Patricia Stoneking. pay attention to #2. Actual bill and number will be published next week. Stay tuned!!

    **LEGISLATIVE NEWS** Now for the unveiling. This is just a summary of what will be in the bill that I initiated on behalf of KSRA and that Representative Jim Howell has sponsored for us. Jim and I both have worked tirelessly for weeks and weeks to make this bill as clean and comprehensive as possible. We will probably have a bill number on Tuesday as Jim introduced it in committee today.

    1. Prohibits any city or county from expending funds derived from the proceeds of implementing, administering or operating a firearms buyback program.

    2. Preempts any and all local control of firearms and ammunition. No city or county or agent of such will be able to adopt any ordinance, resolution or regulation or take any administrative action governing the purchase, transfer, ownership, storage, carrying on one’s person or transporting firearms or ammunition or any component or combination thereof.

    3. No city or county or agent of such will be able to adopt any ordinance, resolution or regulation relating to the sale of a firearm by an individual who holds a federal firearms license that is more restrictive than any ordinance or regulation relating to the sale of any other commercial good.

    4. Clarifies that no municipality can enact any ordinance, resolution, regulation or tax relating to the transportation, possession, carrying, sale, transfer, purchase, gift, devise, licensing, registration or use of a knife or knife making components. Nullifies all existing past ordinances and prohibits future ones.

    5. Prohibits the destruction of seized firearms once they are no longer needed as evidence. They may be traded with other departments and KBI, sold or traded to licensed firearms dealers, used for testing or comparison by the forensics laboratory or given to the Kansas Department of Wildlife Parks and Tourism for use in Hunter Education programs. Payments for transfers will be credited to the asset seizure and forfeiture fund of the seizing agency.

    6. If a weapon is seized from an individual and they are not convicted or adjudicated as a juvenile it shall be verified it is not stolen and upon verification returned to the individual from whom it was seized within 30 days.

    7. Contains some cleanup language from the Public Building Security Act, Senate Sub for HB 2052, passed in 2013. (Page 11 & 13). Better defines “Municipal Buildings” and clarifies that does not include buildings leased to a private entity.

    8. Cleans up the Knife Act from 2013 providing intended prohibition of enforcement of local ordinances passed prior to July 1, 2013 and addresses possession of knives by convicted felons.

    9. Cleans up language/terminology usage which created a conflict according to an Attorney General Opinion issued in January 2014.

    10. Prohibits municipalities from requiring disclosure or making a record of concealed carry permits. If a need is felt due to certain circumstances, the police are to be called to handle it.

    It is widely expected that he will sign it.

    We are a few short months from eliminating the patchwork quilt of firearm laws!
