The state Senate is poised to pass a bill that would allow any Kansan who can legally own a gun to carry it concealed in public.
On Wednesday, senators introduced the so-called constitutional carry bill with 26 co-sponsors, five more than the number of votes needed to pass the bill through the chamber and send it to the House.
Kansas already allows the open carrying of firearms in most public places as a result of legislation passed last year, but carrying concealed requires a gun-safety training class and a state-issued permit.
Senate Bill 45 would negate the need for the class or the permit to carry a concealed weapon in Kansas, although gun owners could still obtain a state concealed-carry permit if they want to carry in other states that honor Kansas permits, said Senate Majority Leader Terry Bruce, R-Hutchinson and the measure’s primary sponsor.
