Kansas Residents Could Soon Carry Concealed Without The Need For A Permit

A proposed bill, Senate Bill 45, would change the laws on concealed carry in Kansas. Historically, Kansas residents have been able to open carry without the need for a permit, and this bill would extend that to concealed carry as well.

The main sponsor of the bill, Terry Burce, says that if the bill passes, it will be a “non event” because criminals do not try to secure the proper licenses anyway. What it will allow is the law-abiding to carry concealed without the need to jump through hoops.

Critics say that a bill of this nature would turn the state into the wild west. It’s a typical argument, but we don’t see this happening in the states that currently do not have any permit requirements for concealed carry.

How funny and convenient that the critics don’t mention that.
