Wichita repeals local firearms ordinances
Question of the Day
WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The Wichita City Council has voted to repeal local ordinances on firearms ahead of a new Kansas law nullifying county and city regulations on owning, carrying and transporting guns.
KFDI-FM reports (http://bit.ly/1kYw1oT ) council members reluctantly took the action Tuesday. The state law takes effect July 1.
Among the Wichita ordinances taken off the books are laws requiring private security officers to have gun permits and safety training. A member of the city’s legal department said Wichita would still regulate the private security industry, with background checks and basic education requirements.
The City Council also repealed ordinances on possession of guns, knives and air rifles. Members were told the state still prohibits people from carrying knives with the intent to harm another person, but the city can’t outlaw knives in public buildings.
