OP to consider restrictions on new open carry law
Overland Park will consider making some changes to their new open carry law they passed last month.
The city is now looking at adding some regulations to the open carry law. Councilman Jim Hix says they'd like to add "reasonable and frankly, appropriate restrictions", like age, safety courses, and background checks.
Overland Park officials have heard from concealed carry and open carry advocates concerned that there are fewer restrictions on open carry than on concealed carry, Hix said in a statement.
The public safety committee is set to look at the new restrictions during a meeting on November 14th.
