Kansas Urged To Have Simple Signs For Barring Guns

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Gun-rights advocates and others want the Kansas attorney general's office to keep the signs simple for businesses and groups that want to bar firearms from their premises.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Attorney General Derek Schmidt met Wednesday with gun-rights advocates and business and local government representatives.

A state law taking effect in July makes the open carrying of guns legal across the state. But businesses and groups still will be able to ban both concealed and unconcealed guns from their premises if they post signs.

The attorney general's office will determine what goes on the signs.

The group agreed there should be one sign for banning all guns inside a building. Much of the discussion centered on businesses that would ban concealed guns but not openly carried ones.
