Schmidt releases statement on Second Amendment lawsuit

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt released the following statement Wednesday to Kansas First News in response to the lawsuit filed by a Washington, D.C., gun control group challenging the Kansas Second Amendment Protection Act, which was enacted in 2013:

“We will defend this duly enacted Kansas law that was intended by the Legislature to safeguard Kansans’ rights under the Second and Tenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. This law has been in effect, unchanged, for more than a year, and the timing and tone of this election-year lawsuit are obviously political. We are reviewing the complaint and will respond in due course and in the proper legal forum.”
