    Grain Valley Municipal Code

    I was checking out the Grain Valley Municipal code, specifically the section on weapons. These codes are dated June 10, 2013. Just curious if subsection A, subparagraph 1 can override federal laws. I do not have a CCW yet, but planned on getting one soon. Also, this code doesn't state you cannot OC, only mentions that part about concealed weapons. What does everybody think, anybody had problems with OC in Grain Valley? Thanks

    They do not allow for ccw WITH A PERMIT which is preempted by State law. They need to update. As far as OC goes, there is noting but the muni-code is way BEHIND THE CURVE.

    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    As a graduate of the Grain Valley High School 20 years, and former resident of Grain Valley, I can tell you that based on the names on the list, that set of city codes/ordinances was voted on and enacted in around 1995-1996 with a minor revision in about 2004...

    They are seriously out dated.
