TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas lawmakers are close to finishing work on gun-rights measures representing the Republican-dominated Legislature's response to the fatal school shooting in December in Newtown, Conn.
House and Senate negotiators agreed Wednesday on the final version of a bill declaring that the federal government can't regulate guns, ammunition and accessories manufactured, sold and kept only in Kansas. The bill makes it a felony for a federal employee or agent to attempt to enforce a law, regulation, order or treaty affecting such guns.
Lawmakers are still working on the final language for another concealed carry bill but expect to finish this week.
The bill would allow public schools and colleges to arm individual employees with concealed guns and would permit concealed weapons in more public buildings.
