TOPEKA, KS --- The Kansas House of Representatives passes a bill that will allow gun owners in the state to carry concealed firearms without a permit.

Members of the Senate introduced and passed the bill last month.  The measure will now be sent to Governor Sam Brownback to consider.

If Governor Brownback passes the bill, Kansas will become the fifth state to allow concealed carry without a permit everywhere within the state.  If the bill goes into law, Kansas will still issue permits so residents can carry concealed gusn in other states that allow Kansas permits.

Members of the House also voted to pass a bill prohibiting cities and counties from imposing special fees and taxes on guns or gun sales.
