Registering a Firearm

Kansas does not have any laws that require the registration of firearms with the state.

Concealed Carry

As explained in Kan Stat. Ann. § 21-6302(4), any person who is twenty-one years of age or older can concealed carry in Kansas without a permit. The state does, however, offer an optional Concealed Carry Handgun License for those who wish to obtain one.

How to Apply

A person must be at least twenty-one years old to concealed carry in Kansas.

Step 1 – Complete a firearm safety training course that is approved by the state Attorney General’s office.

Step 2 – Submit a Kansas Application for Concealed Carry Handgun License to the applicant’s local Sheriff’s office. Attach the filing fee, proof of safety training completion, a 2×2 passport-type color photo, and proof of citizenship or permanent residency.

Step 3 – Submit fingerprints to the Sheriff’s office along with the application.

Step 4 – The Sheriff’s office has ninety (90) days from the date of submission to approve or deny an application.

Reciprocity

As established by SB 45, anyone twenty-one years of age or older, whether they are a resident of Kansas or not, is legally allowed to carry a concealed weapon in the state.
