Is a Kansas public library required to post one of the official "no guns allowed" signs, per the new regulations released by the Attorney General's office?

No. Public libraries are not required to post a "Personal and Family Protection Act" sign. Public libraries were made exempt from the statute and it was, and is, therefore already illegal to carry a concealed weapon into a library.

While a library is not required to post one of the new signs, a library may chose to do so. If that is the case, the sign to use has just been proscribed in regulation posted on the Attorney General's Web site.

*Note. The 2007 Kansas Legislature amended the "Personal and Family Protection Act," see "Concealed carry amendment of 2007 impacts libraries" post to this blog. Also see the Attorney General's website at the followiong link for additional information
