Lawmakers are considering whether Kansas should recognize concealed weapons permits from other states. But for both sides, the real issue is people under 21 carrying concealed guns.
In Kansas, almost anyone over 21 can carry a concealed weapon without a permit. Concealed weapons permits are still available, but aren’t needed anymore to carry a concealed gun.
Recognizing permits from other states could allow even younger people to have a hidden gun. Multiple states allow people under 21 to carry a concealed weapon.
