Kansas Senate Committee Upholds Campus Carry

posted on February 2, 2017

A bill that would have effectively nullified Kansas’ campus-carry law was rejected by a Senate committee on Tuesday. 

When the law requiring public buildings to allow firearms on their premises was originally passed in 2013, it granted universities and medical buildings a four-year exemption. While that exemption was set to expire in July, S.B. 53, which was rejected by the Senate Committee on Federal and State Affairs by a voice vote, would have prolonged it indefinitely.

While the committee vote is certainly cause for celebration, the battle for campus carry is far from over—S.B. 53’s companion bill, H.B. 2074, is still set for a hearing. If passed, this measure would repeal campus carry altogether in universities that declined to provide “adequate security.” A related bill, H.B. 2150, would prohibit concealed carry in the Kansas University Hospital. 

Use Your Power!

To ensure the future of campus carry, it is imperative that Kansas gun owners contact members of the House Committee on Federal and State Affairs and encourage them to oppose H.B. 2074 and H.B. 2150 when they are brought up for a vote. To contact your representatives, click here.
