    Here's the story. I found it on a link from the NRA website.

    Does this change Kansas from Anomalous to "Gold Star"?

    Does House Bill 2528 make any distinctions between open and concealed carry?

    If not I am sure a gold star will be forth comming.

    Yaaaaa!! (We need an emotion that signifies exhiliration.)
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I just read the bill, and in as far as I can tell, the statute SPECIFICALLY allows for Open Carry! Here is the link to the actual bill:

    Am I wrong here, or am I reading this correctly?

    Section B(2) still allows regulation by local governments of openly carried firearms by persons not licensed under the Kansas family protection act. Only those permits recognized by Kansas have the protection of this preemption. No non-resident permits either.

    Not perfect, but a step forward.

    So help me out here. Anyone can open carry, except where a local ordinance applies.

    However, if you have a CCW license, then you can still open carry? The ordinance would not apply to you?

    True?

    It seems that way. If you hold a Kansas license to carry a concealed weapon you are exempt from local ordinances that illegalize open carry.

    That is exactly the way I read the statute.

    The license must be from KS or a resident license of a state with reciprocity with KS. If you do not have a license to carry youshould brush up on all the local ordinances before you OC in those jurisdictions.
