When state legislators made changes in 2007 to Kansas' concealed carry law, it also impacted schools, libraries and churches.
All those locations used to be automatically prohibited places for concealed carry license holders to enter, regardless of whether a no-gun sign was posted. Now, those locations must post no-gun signs if they want to keep concealed carry holders out.
Schools, though, apparently have gotten the message better than bars. Supt. Randy Weseman said Lawrence Public Schools were made aware of the changes by various education groups that follow the Legislature.
"We've got signs posted everywhere," Weseman said.
The Lawrence Public Library also has a no-gun sign posted. Some churches in the city said they had heard of the change and posted signs, others said they had not heard of the new regulations.
