Bills Needing Urgent Action

The following are bills that need urgent action. Updated 4/20/2018.

Bills to Oppose

HB 2042

This bill will allow concealed carry reciprocity and allow 18-20 year olds from Kansas to concealed carry with a permit. More about this bill here.

Stage of the Bill: 

  • Out of Conference Committee (Read about the conference committee fiasco here)
  • On April 26, 2018, it will likely be voted on in both chambers. We will be at the capitol. Please join us.

Actions Needed on HB 2042: 

      • Come to the Capitol on April 26, 2018 to join us in telling every legislator we can to vote NO on HB 2042. Here’s our Facebook event. RSVP and check there for updates on times.
      • Make phone calls and write emails asking legislators to oppose HB 2042. We need both the Senate and the House. If your representatives already oppose it, please also call or write to one from another district and urge your friends in other districts to call and write to theirs.

HB 2789 

This bill would do a lot of things, but most notably, make it so we have armed teachers in K-12. Here’s our full breakdown of the bill.

Stage of the Bill:

  • It’s still hanging out in the House Insurance Committee.

Actions needed on HB 2789:

  • Tell the Kansas House Committee on Insurance to oppose HB 2789. We’ve listed all their contact info at the bottom of this post.
  • Tell your representatives that you don’t want guns in K-12 and to oppose HB 2789.

Bills to Support

Nothing urgent right now, but don’t hesitate to tell your representatives what you want. Want an assault weapons ban? Tell them. Want to repeal campus carry? Tell them. Ask them to introduce legislation next year to do it. They represent us- not the other way around.

HB 2145 – the bill banning convicted domestic abusers from possessing guns – was signed by Governor Colyer on April 20, 2018.
