    LATE-BREAKING NEWS: House Overrides Gun Veto; Concealed Carry To Become Law
    March 23, 2006, 10:56 AM CST




    By CARL MANNING
    Associated Press Writer

    TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansans will be able to carry concealed guns after the House on Thursday overrode Gov. Kathleen Sebelius' veto of a gun bill, allowing it to become law this summer.

    The vote was 91-33, giving supporters of the measure seven votes more than the two-thirds majority necessary. The Senate voted Wednesday night to override the veto, 30-10, with three votes more than needed.

    The new law, taking effect July 1, will permit U.S. citizens 21 and older living in Kansas to obtain a four-year concealed-carry permit from their local sheriffs. Hidden weapons still will be banned in some places, including schools, churches, libraries and courthouses.

    Legislators' action capped a decade-long debate, which saw Kansas remain part of an ever-dwindling group of states that didn't allow residents to carry hidden weapons. Only Illinois, Nebraska and Wisconsin are still on the list.

    Kansas will become one of 37 states where permits must be issued to people who qualify. An additional eight states permit law enforcement agencies to reject permits even if someone has met all legal requirements, while Alaska and Vermont have no prohibitions for carry concealed guns.

    Sebelius became the first Kansas governor to have a veto overridden in 12 years. She vetoed a similar bill in 2004, as her predecessor, Republican Bill Graves, did in 1997.

    YAHOO!!!!!! That is great news. Welcome to the light Kansas. I celebrate with joy any state that sends such a clear message to their elected officials. Now vote that Governor out of office next time around for good measure.

    Good for the Jayhawk state!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Well, according to the anti's, "gun" crime will go up. They "proved" that states with Shall Issue are more dangerous than those that don't.

    That is great news!
    Reciprocity? I'll see what I can dig up in the statute, but it usually takes a bit for all that to happen unless it's part of the initial law. In MO, the law says we'll recognize all (? I think..) others, but other states slowly have decided to recognize ours.
    I sure hope KS is written like MO -- my wife and I are in Kansas relatively often. It would be REALLY nice to just keep the guns on instead of locking them in the car.

    Oh my - oh my, oh my - that is terrific news. Boy am I ever pleased for you guys there - so long in coming, so overdue.

    I just hope very much that WI can finally beat the crazy veto and get her CCW in not too distant future. I wish for the day when ALL states have shall issue, tho still sadly in one or two cases I dare not hold my breath.

    Congratulation to the people of Kansas for this victory. Also congratulations to the people of Kansas for having the intelligence to elect representatives that represent them and that have the integrity to vote their conscience and the guts to stand by their votes. Wisconsin needs to elect the same kind of representatives.

    Here we go....

    Link to the Bill

    Lines 10-20:


    "A valid license, issued by any other state or the District of Columbia, to carry concealed weapons shall be recognized as valid in this state, but only while the holder is not a resident of Kansas, if the attorney general determines that standards for issuance of such license or permit by such state or district are equal to or greater than the standards imposed by this act. The attorney general shall maintain and publish a list of such states and district which the attorney general determines have standards equal to or greater than the standards imposed by this act.

    The provisions of this subsection shall take effect and be in force from and after January 1, 2007."
