A proposal to make guns or ammunition produced in Kansas immune to federal law was sent from committee to the full Kansas House Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2013.
A provision that would have made it illegal for doctors other than a psychiatrist to ask patience if they owned a gun was removed. The measure had failed in committee before that was removed.
This bill will now go to the House for debate. If it passes there it will go through the Senate, and would land on the Governor's desk if it passes there. With conservative republicans holding a majority in both houses, the bill has a good chance of passing.
This is just one of several proposals at the Kansas Statehouse that are aimed at protecting gun rights and at avoiding federal laws.
A second bill being debated for the second year in a row, would allow people to carry concealed weapons inside courthouses and other public buildings. The only way it could be avoided would be for the public building to provide security.
Opponents in local government say this would cost too much. This one could pass, but local governments opposing it may be enough to keep it from passing.
Another bill in the Senate would prevent cities or counties from passing their own gun control measures.
There are several other issues floating around the statehouse that are related to guns. Others may not pass, or parts could be rolled into the top two before the session ends.
Here is a look at bills related to guns currently in the Kansas Statehouse.
