Kansas Permitless Concealed Carry Less “Permitless” Than Predicted

posted on July 25, 2015

When Kansas’ permitless concealed-carry law passed in April, it brought anti-gun alarmists out in full force. They claimed it would put people in unnecessary danger, adversely affect the business community and endanger law enforcement, among other dire outcomes.

Not only has that proved untrue, Kansans are still obtaining carry permits at a robust pace, even though they are no longer required to do so. According to Attorney General Derek Schmidt, his office received 9,805 applications for concealed-carry permits for the fiscal year ending June 30—making it the fourth-highest year on record, and bringing the number of permits issued in Kansas to nearly 100,000.

Schmidt credits Kansas’ extensive reciprocity agreements for the continued interest in permits. “There are still a number of benefits for Kansans who obtain concealed-carry licenses … Kansas licenses are recognized by 36 other states, most of which still require a permit to carry concealed,” he said.
