Explaining Kansas gun laws

TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) Two new gun laws went into effect earlier this week. But the laws seem to be at odds with each other.

One allows you to openly carry a gun in the state as long as it’s legally registered but the other says you have to conceal it inside the statehouse. So how are those officers who fought the plan going to handle the change?

“For people who chose to open carry just know that someone may call,” says Riley County Officer Matthew Droge. “Someone may find it suspicious and if they call us we have an obligation to the community to respond.”

Private businesses can still forbid you from openly carrying a gun inside but public spaces like parks and municipal buildings must allow it.
