TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House is preparing to vote on three proposals to alter the state's gun regulations, including expanding the locations where concealed weapons could be carried.

Approval of the bills Thursday would send them to the Senate.

One measure would let school districts and state colleges designate employees who could carry concealed firearms inside their buildings, even if such weapons were banned for others.

The bill also would expand the number of public buildings where people with a state permit could bring concealed weapons, including the Statehouse.

Another measure declares that the federal government cannot regulate firearms manufactured, sold and kept in Kansas.

The proposals are a reaction to discussions about new gun-control measures by federal officials in the wake of December's mass school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
