The Kansas Senate yesterday voted, in rare unanimous fashion, to strengthen the rights of law-abiding Kansas gun-owners. Among other less-significant changes, KS SB-21’s passage would allow for universal recognition of all other states’ concealed carry permits and licenses.

If passed into law, this has the potential to open the door for near-universal recognition of the Kansas Concealed Carry Handgun License (you can count on Illinois, California, and New York to be among those not honoring it).

The bill is now on its way to the Kansas House of Representatives with is will be assigned to a committee for further examination and consideration.
