Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed into law a bill allowing many public employees to carry concealed weapons when they’re traveling on the job. The change means employees for cities, counties and government agencies can now carry guns when they’re working out in the community.
During debate earlier this month, Republican Sen. Forrest Knox said this allows workers to protect themselves.
“You should not, if you’re a public entity, a public employer, be able to require your employees to be defenseless,” Knox says.
