• Rep. Reid Petty’s office
On Tuesday morning, the Second Amendment Protection Act, HB-2199, with a couple of small amendments, passed out of the Federal and State Committee with a voice vote and no opposition.
State Representative Reid Petty, who was a co-sponsor of the bill and who sits on the Federal and State Committee, was very pleased with the outcome.
“Kansans want their right to bear arms protected that is guaranteed to them in the Constitution. This bill goes a long way to do that and I am happy to see this bill get out of committee and now go to the House floor,” Petty said.
The Second Amendment Protection Act states that “Any act, law, treaty, order, rule or regulation of the government of the United States which violates the second amendment to the constitution is null, void and unenforceable in the state of Kansas.”
The bill will now go to the full House for a vote.
