TOPEKA – A public hearing on the proposed permanent gun signage regulations has been scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 17, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said in a news release Monday.

The hearing will be in the second floor auditorium of Memorial Hall, 120 SW 10th Ave., Topeka.

Last month, Attorney General Schmidt released his proposed regulations for signage that may be used to restrict the carrying of firearms – open, concealed or both – into buildings, in compliance with a new law passed by the Kansas Legislature earlier this year. Temporary regulations adopting these signage rules were approved by the State Rules and Regulations Board and took effect July 1.

State law requires a 60-day comment period and a public hearing before the regulations become permanent.

The proposed regulations are available at Members of the public may submit comments on the proposed regulations on the website, by email to or by mail to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, 120 SW 10th Ave., 2nd Floor, Topeka, KS 66612.
