Kansas proposal would allow concealed carry with no permit

Coming off legislative victories in recent years, gun-rights advocates pushed Kansas lawmakers Thursday to allow the state’s residents to carry concealed firearms without requiring them to obtain a permit.

The Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee had a hearing on a bill to expand concealed carry to anyone in Kansas who can legally own a gun. The panel took no action, but its chairman promised a vote, and several members made comments supporting the measure.

All states allow some form concealed carry, but the National Rifle Association says Alaska, Arizona, Vermont and Wyoming don’t require a permit anywhere in the state, while Montana allows it without a permit outside of cities, which is most of the state.

Kansas last year enacted an NRA-backed law prohibiting local restrictions on gun sales, gun ownership and the open carrying of firearms. A 2013 law declares that the federal government has no authority to regulate firearms manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas, and it’s illegal to use state tax dollars to promote or oppose gun-control policies.
