The Shawnee County District Attorney said he is fighting to bring back a bill he worked on that will bring tougher laws against felons in possession of firearms illegally.
Shawnee County District Attorney Mike Kagay sat down with KSNT News’ Brittany Moore Wednesday morning. Kagay discussed recent efforts by the Topeka Police Department to get illegal guns off the streets, and mentioned a related piece of legislation he worked on, but later died: HB 2760. This Kansas House bill would require presumptive imprisonment for felons found illegally possessing firearms. The two also talked about high profile cases, including the Dana Chandler murder trial.
