KS Attorney General Plans Public Hearing On Regulations For Gun Signs
Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt plans to have a public hearing in September on new regulations for signs that businesses and groups must post if they want to ban guns from their premises.
The hearing is set for Sept. 17 in the building near the Kansas Statehouse that houses the attorney general's office.
A state law that took effect this month makes the open carrying of guns legal across the state. But businesses and groups still can ban both concealed and unconcealed guns from their premises if they post signs.
The new rules create signs for barring both concealed and unconcealed guns, allowing both, or allowing one and not the other.
Schmidt's office said the hearing isn't until September to provide 60 days for public comments.
