Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has signed legislation nullifying city and county gun restrictions and ensuring that it’s legal across the state to openly carry firearms.
The governor announced his action Wednesday. The new law will take effect July 1. The National Rifle Association has described it as a model for stripping local officials of their gun-regulating power.
The bill would sweep away local restrictions on open carry, though cities and counties could prevent people from doing so in public buildings.
Goddamned activist governors.
