AG Schmidt announces public hearing on gun sign regulations

Release Date: Jul 14, 2014

TOPEKA – (July 14, 2014) – A public hearing on the proposed permanent gun signage regulations has been scheduled for September 17 at 9 a.m., Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said.

The hearing will be in the second floor auditorium of Memorial Hall, 120 SW 10th Ave., Topeka.

Last month, Attorney General Schmidt released his proposed regulations for signage that may be used to restrict the carrying of firearms – open, concealed or both – into buildings, in compliance with a new law passed by the Kansas Legislature earlier this year. Temporary regulations adopting these signage rules were approved by the State Rules and Regulations Board and took effect July 1.

State law requires a 60-day comment period and a public hearing before the regulations become permanent.

The proposed regulations are available at http://1.usa.gov/1tFyBof. Members of the public may submit comments on the proposed regulations on the website, by email to ksagcc@ag.ks.gov or by mail to Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, 120 SW 10th Ave., 2nd Floor, Topeka, KS 66612.
