Kansas Receives It’s 100,000th Concealed Carry Application

State Attorney General Derek Schmidt revealed today in a news release that Kansas has received it’s 100,000th application for a concealed carry permit. Since concealed carry has been legal in the state beginning in 2006, the state has issued 89,399 permits.

Gov. Sam Brownback signed a bill earlier this year eliminating the licensing requirement for citizens who want to carry a concealed firearm. That law takes effect July 1.

Even though residents will not need a permit to carry concealed after July 1st, they still have the option of receiving a permit so that they’re able to carry in the currently 36 states (image above) that recognize Kansas permits.
