    Question Park City, KS Municipal Code

    Hello All;

    I have recently applied for my CCH but am awaiting for my approval letter. In the meantime, I have been doing research online and found out open carry is legal in Wichita [recently passed]. However, I am unsure about Park City based on the municipal code [I know if the out right ban it then it unconstitutainal against the state]. I browsed through the municipal code and this is all I could find:

    person, other than an officer of the law or a deputy to such officer, who within the
    corporate limits of the city, carries or possesses unconcealed and with intent to use the
    same unlawfully against another any loaded firearm or any automatic firearms with a
    magazines loaded in place, or any dagger, billy club, blackjack, slingshot or knife,
    straight edged razor, stiletto or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument of
    like character which, when used, is likely to produce death or great bodily harm, shall be
    deemed guilty of a misdemeanor; provided, however, that an ordinary, folding blade,
    pocket knife with blades less than four (4) inches in length shall not be construed to be
    a knife or a dangerous or deadly weapon for the purposes of this section. Upon
    conviction for a violation of this section, the municipal court judge, in addition to the
    penalty provided for violation of this section, may, in his or her discretion, order such
    unconcealed weapon to be forfeited to the city and the same shall be disposed of by the
    chief of police whenever the weapon is no longer needed for evidence.

    It doesn't say you cannot if you are legally going to open carry, so do you think I would be alright? Does anyone here currently open carry in Park City or have anymore insight?

    The website for the whole municipal code is and the link is on the left side as download in PDF form.

    Thanks in advance!

    At foirst looks this municode looks ok to me - key element of the offense is "and with intent to use the
    same unlawfully against another"
