Well, I've brought this up to the kansas concealed carry forum and asked their thoughts. This is what was said and I happened to realize what they said was correct, as my original thoughts on this issue were. We do not have open carry just because we have a CC license. I thought it sounded ridiculous.
I think some are 'mis-reading' this and missing the first words of that section .... if you ddin't read that first line into it... it would appear they could carry "open" and the city/county coudl not regulate it if you were CCL. However, the first sentence changes the meaning, and "yes" , they can restrict anyone from open carry... IF they pass a law to that effect.
(b) Nothing in this section shall:
(2) prohibit a city or county from regulating the manner of openly
carrying a loaded firearm on one‚Äôs person;
or in the immediate control of a person, not licensed under the personal and family protection act while
on property open to the public.
(3) prohibit a city or county from regulating in any manner the car-
rying of any firearm in any jail, juvenile detention facility, prison, court-
house, courtroom or city hall;
It is saying "nothing in this section" prohibits a City or County from having laws against "open carry". It just goes on later to say, we're ok to have it in the car, and to take it out to put it up, etc. without being charged with 'open carry' because we had the weapon out (in order to put it up in the car, etc), or because we had it in the car (transportation section & laws).
