TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt is convening a meeting Wednesday to discuss new regulations for signs that business owners and others must post to keep guns off their premises.

Schmidt’s office said Tuesday it is soliciting public input about what should be required for no-gun signs under a new state law taking effect in July.

The new law bars cities and counties from regulating firearms. It will ensure that the open carrying of firearms is legal statewide.

But businesses, churches and others still will be able to bar concealed and unconcealed guns from their premises if they post signs. The attorney general’s office must say what goes on the signs.

Wednesday’s meeting takes place at 3 p.m. in the Topeka building housing the attorney general’s office.
