Concealed carry amendment 0f 2007 impacts libraries.

The 2007 Kansas Legislature amended the 2006 concealed carry (Personal and Family Protection Act) statute to include a requirement that all areas must have appropriate signage in order to apply to individuals who have concealed carry permits. This means that public libraries must post the no-carry sign in order for the state law banning weapons in these areas to apply.

The statute also provides that the no-carry signs be posted in accordance with rules and regulations adopted by the Attorney General.

For more information on concealed carry and the Personal & Family Protection Act (KSA 75-7c01 et. seq) see the Attorney General's website at
