I see what is concerning you. Under section (3) of the statute, it does appear that you would have gun rights in Kansas. However, your offense is a drug conviction and would come under (2). You are merging the two provision, and I don't think the provisions are meant to be merged. The statute specifically sets apart those cases which would fall under the Uniform Controlled Substances Act. They need not have done that if they didn't want to make that a stand-alone provision. They could have stricken it from the statute altogether and just let you get your rights restored in 5 years.
Additionally, as you still have the Texas felony on your record, even if you would be okay under Kansas law via your theory, you would be barred from possession of a weapon under Federal
law because of the Texas conviction. I know it's not what you want to hear, but I am going to stand by my original position.
You will need to get your Texas felony set aside and your gun rights restored. I don't know how feasible that will be, but that's the only chance I see.
