Ammunition Regulation in Kansas

Posted on January 2, 2012

See our Ammunition Regulation policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.

Kansas law prohibits possessing, manufacturing, causing to be manufactured, selling, offering for sale, lending, purchasing or giving away any cartridge which can be fired by a handgun and which has a plastic-coated bullet that has a core of less than 60% lead by weight.1

Kansas law does not:

  • Impose a minimum age for the purchase or possession of ammunition (although federal law applies);
  • Require sellers of ammunition to maintain a record of the purchasers;
  • Require a license for the purchase or possession of ammunition; or
  • Require a license to sell ammunition.
  1. Kan. Stat. Ann. § 21-6301(a)(6). []
