Bill Introduced In Kansas House Would Kill Campus Carry

posted on January 19, 2017

With only months left before Kansas’ landmark campus carry law is set to go into effect, a bill has been introduced in the Kansas House of Representatives that would effectively nullify the measure. 

Introduced by Rep. Stephanie Clayton, R-Overland Park, on Tuesday, the bill would extend indefinitely the extension originally allowing colleges and universities extra time to draft new weapons policies—effectively allowing these institutions to postpone implementing campus carry as long as they choose. Clayton claims that because Kansas did away with its concealed-carry training requirements in 2015, two years after campus carry was passed, that the measure needed to be re-examined. 

“You had to jump through all of these hoops in order to carry a concealed weapon. Now everyone can have a gun …” Clayton falsely claimed. In reality, only those over 21 who are licensed to carry concealed elsewhere would be eligible.

Even if the bill progresses, Gov. Sam Brownback seems unlikely to sign it. “My view of the Second Amendment hasn’t changed,” he said Tuesday.
