Happy Independence Day, Kansas

posted on June 30, 2015

Kansas gun owners will be celebrating Independence Day a few days early. That’s because SB 45—otherwise known as “permitless” carry legislation—goes into effect tomorrow. 

This important update to the current concealed-carry law removes the requirement to obtain a permit to carry concealed. It also keeps in place the current permitting system, so those wishing to exercise the reciprocity agreements that Kansas has in place with other states can still do so. 

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback signed SB 45 into law on April 2, making Kansas the fifth state to remove this restriction. As it is also legal to openly carry a firearm in Kansas, law-abiding gun owners across the state now have the freedom to choose how and where they carry.
