Gun Bills Approved and Sent to Governor
The bills received large majorities Friday as legislators adjourned to begin a monthlong break.
One measure would allow concealed weapons to be carried into public buildings that lack adequate security measures defined by the bill. It also would allow schools and colleges to arm employees.
The other bill declares that the federal government has no power to regulate guns, ammunition and accessories that are made, sold and kept exclusively in Kansas. The bill would make it a felony for a federal agent to enforce restrictions on such items.
Supporters say the bill is constitutional because the items wouldn’t leave Kansas.
