TOPEKA, Kansas (AP) – Kansas officials are holding a public hearing this week on proposed signs to be placed on buildings where firearms are prohibited.

A state law that took effect July 1 legalized the open carry of guns across the state. But building owners may ban concealed firearms, openly carried guns or both from their premises if they post signs.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt’s office was put in charge of creating the signs and proposed the designs earlier this year. Temporary rules were approved by a state board and took effect July 1, but Kansas law requires a 60-day comment period and public hearing before the regulations become permanent.

The hearing will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Memorial Hall in Topeka. The proposed signs can be found on Schmidt’s website.
