Kan. House considering law on state-made weapons

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The Kansas House is considering a bill that would exempt firearms, firearm accessories and ammunition made in the state from federal regulations.

The "Made in Kansas" bill also would prevent physicians -- other than psychiatrists -- from asking patients if they have firearms in their homes.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/WXWchx ) that the bill has 50 sponsors from both parties. Supporters say it is aimed at protecting both gun owners' rights and states' rights.

A similar bill introduced last session passed in the House but stalled in the Senate.

An initial hearing in the House Federal and State Affairs Committee is expected to be held next week.
