Dear KSRA Members and Other Interested Parties:

***URGENT CALL TO ACTION***
Time is short in the session so if action is not taken all of the KSRA legislation will die this year
We are asking you to call or email TODAY the office of Senator Ralph Ostmeyer, Chairman of the Senate Federal & State Affairs committee and politely yet boldly request he stop holding up House Substitute for SB 65 and bring it to the floor of the House so it can be referred to a conference committee with the Senate. You can find the contact information for Senator Ostmeyer below, as well as a breakdown of the bill.

Senator Ralph Ostmeyer
Phone: 785-296-7399
Email: Ralph.Ostmeyer@senate.ks.gov

House Sub for SB 65
• Would allow public employees to carry concealed on the job outside of their workplace and in municipally owned vehicles.
• Would allow for the partial securing of state and municipal buildings.
• Would provide that a person who can legally possess a firearm may carry a concealed handgun in all state and municipal buildings and public areas where statutorily-defined adequate security measures are not in place.
• Includes the language of the BB/air gun bill, HB 2468, which would prohibit unified school districts from banning BB/air gun clubs, associations, or competitions on their properties.
• Contains provisions from HB 2591, and would make it easier for active duty military members who are Kansas residents but are stationed in another state to apply for their concealed carry license without having to physically return to the state of Kansas.
• Includes the provisions of SB 421 otherwise known as the "Wichita Fast Pass" bill which would allow for authorized persons who are not employees of the state or municipality to enter state or municipal buildings through restricted access points if they fulfill the criteria set out in the language of the bill.

you know OP, to hear nothing from mid February when you started waving the flag to contact the legislators about SB 65 as it is 'time sensitive' to over sixty+ days later where you are jumping up and down as the issue is now 'urgent' and in crisis mode.

some operate under a concept that 'A lack of planning on your part doesn’t constitute an emergency on mine.'

tho the plug for money was nicely done!!

Solus,

This message was not intended for you. You live in North Carolina. The urgency was for people who reside in Kansas.

I will continue to post in the Kansas forum any and all legislative information that applies to our state. For those of us who are in the state capital working and fighting daily to expand 2nd Amendment rights we need help from time to time motivating our legislators to vote or not hold up important grass roots work. Many times issues are time sensitive that is how is works in politics.

For those of you that did email or respond to the KSRA’s appeal for help Thank you! The Senator in question did let our combined bills go to conference committee to be worked by both houses and he wouldn’t have done that without a friendly reminder from the people of Kansas how important our bills are to our constituent’s.

I’ll keep everyone informed.

once again the local egotistical mentality runs rampant...

do you truly believe your legislators are quick enough to discern where the 15 or so emails I sent asking for their support on the substitution bill of the substitution started in 2015 came from?

play martyr, tho the role doesn't suit you as your perspective of 'i am the only one who can do this' will be your downfall.

based on the success of the LGBT campaign and the gains they have made is such a short period of time, i have steadfastly supported a nationwide push from everyone yet folk of your elk believe only your narrowly focused group can succeed w/o outside assistance. did i mention you bill is olde.

Or for people who travel or visit Kansas too ? Or might travel or visit through?

Its the nature of the legislative process ..... meeting, then wait wait wait, then hurry hurry hurry.

Then get disappointed that a anti-right law was passed; then understand that the law is void anyway -- whew! dodged that bullet ~ just like the Zodiac Killer...

Bill Passed both houses & is headed to the Governor's office

SB 65 turned into HB 2502 in Committee and now has passed both the Senate & House and is headed to our A++++ 2nd Amendment Governor Brownback for his expected signature.

Thank you to all who sent email mails! It really did help.


Summary for HB 2502 (the gun bill)

-Would allow public employees with the to carry concealed on the job outside of their workplace and in municipally owned vehicles.

-Would allow for the partial securing of state and municipal buildings.

-Would provide that a person who can legally possess a firearm may carry a concealed handgun in all state and municipal buildings and public areas where statutorily-defined adequate security measures are not in place.

-Includes the language of the BB/air gun bill, HB 2468, which would prohibit unified school districts from banning BB/air gun clubs, associations, or competitions on their properties.

-Contains provisions from HB 2591, and would make it easier for active duty military members who are Kansas residents but are stationed in another state to apply for their concealed carry license without having to physically return to the state of Kansas.

-Includes the provisions of SB 421 otherwise known as the “Wichita Fast Pass” bill which would allow for authorized persons who are not employees of the state or municipality to enter state or municipal buildings through restricted access points if they fulfill the criteria set out in the language of the bill.

**Note: There was a change that was made concerning school districts. The concern was teachers carrying on field trips so they exempted school districts from the definition of public employee. This amendment/change was made by Rep. James Todd in conference committee. The KSRA is not in agreement with this change.

let's define taking things personally shall we, especially on your use of the word I!!

further, i can of course, even from the great state of NC, how a 65+day window between notifications might fit your perception of 'time sensitive' !! (sarcasm off)

my statement stands...
