What are the odds this goes through? Looks like huge GOP majorities in the KS legislature along with a solid conservative Governor.
In WV we also have a similar bill, and according to a questionnaire to those legislators will pass it easily. It would be awesome if multiple states went this way this year.
So the NRA is all over this, but it wouldnt be if it was about OC. And yes I am a member, but.
KS legislature passed HB 2578 in 2014 which eliminated local communities from imposing bans on the statewide legality of open carry. NRA was out in force to make sure it passed. https://www.nraila.org/articles/20140423/kansas-comprehensive-pro-gun-bill-signed-into-law
I was not aware that the NRA listened to the rank and file membership.It seems each state affiliate of NRA is different, most are passively pro OC or pro permitless for both OC and CC. There might be some anti OC in Tx from what I've heard. NRA was against permitless CC in New Hampshire because it didn't respect the federal "gun free" school zone law. The horror.
What's a sure thing is their priority is perks for permitees. Because that's what the majority of their members want.
