The Kansas House is preparing to vote on three proposals to change state gun regulations.

  • One bill would let school districts and state colleges designate employees who could carry concealed firearms inside their buildings, even if such weapons were banned for others.
  • The same measure also would expand the number of public buildings where people with a state permit could bring concealed weapons, including the Statehouse.
  • Another bill would declare the federal government cannot regulate firearms that are manufactured, sold and kept in Kansas.

If the bills are approved today, they'll be sent to the Senate for debate.
