Kansas's new CCW law goes into effect.
Recognition will be granted by KS's AG to CCW holders whose state issue is substantially similar to Kansas's requirements.
Does anyone have any insight to what the AG will consider to be substantial?
ie: Kansas's training will be 8 hours. Any speculation if the AG require the entire 8, as opposed to the UT requirement of 3? et al.......

Might want to contact the AG's office directly and see if they've considered it, I'm sure you aren't the only one being affected. Snail mail might be the best option as a written response could be kept in your files.

PDO still shows current law, nothing on the new laws yet.
Luckily, MO requirements are similar... I'm hopefull that my MO permit will be good there. I am not expecting them to start honoring OOS permits until their permit system is in place, the way I read the law they have until Jan 07.
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

Here's a link to the Kansas Attorney General's website regarding the new Kansas law:
"To disarm the people is the best and most effective way to enslave them."
"Gun control is a job-safety program for criminals."

I can leave my house here in Mo. and in 45 minutes I can be in Arkansas, Oklahoma or Kansas. I sure hope they will honor our permits. That will cover most of my local travel.
The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.

Sounds as if a Utah, Ohio, Florida, et al CCW might be eligible for reciprocity or recognition.
...applicants for licensure would have to present evidence of completion of a “weapons safety and training course”
approved by the Attorney General, law enforcement agency,
or the National Rifle Association (NRA).
Applicants would have to pay for their training course.
Procedures and standards for the weapons safety and training
course would be established in rules and regulations of the Attorney
General. Those standards would have to include:
A requirement that trainees receive training in the actual firing
and safe storage of weapons and instruction in state laws
regarding the carrying of concealed weapons and the use of
General guidelines for courses;
Qualifications of instructors; and
A requirement that the course be a weapons course:
Certified or sponsored by the Attorney General or the NRA;
or Certified or sponsored by a law enforcement agency,
college, private or public institution or organization,
or weapons training school and taught by instructors certified
by the Attorney General or the NRA.
The following would constitute evidence of satisfactory
completion of an approved weapons safety and training course:
Evidence of completion of the course in the form provided by
rules and regulations adopted by the Attorney General;
or An affidavit from the instructor, school, club, organization
or group that conducted or taught the course attesting to completion
by the application.

This will sure be good for Kansas (and for me, since I visit there often).

If they are like MN they will reject almost every state. They waste their time counting crossed T's and dotted I's to establish which states are similar. Our previous Commisioner of PS and his legal council were real bone heads about reciprocity. The new Commisioner seems to be more willing to work with us. We will see as the new list for us is due out the end of June I believe. Good luck.

As said before in other posts by other members. It would be awesome if kansas just copied florida and all the work would be done.

Handgunlaw.us is up to date on the New Kansas CCW Law. We have the places listed that are off limits. We will post additional information as soon as the Kansas AG puts out the information. We have Senate Bill 418 as passed posted and will update information needed by those who needed this information as soon as the state releases it.
