    For you KC,MO guys :-)
    I sent out a series of emails to local city leaders this weekend this is my first reply.

    NAME EDIT, first, in Overland Park has an ordinance that prohibits concealed carry unless the person has a Concealed Carry permit. Second, if you are wanting to know if you can carry a handgun in plain view we have no ordinance that prohibits open carry.

    I would tell you that if you carried any gun in plain view in public areas no doubt our officers would receive calls regarding this conduct. Our Officers would then respond and approach anyone with a gun with serious regard to their safety and the safety of others. The officers would follow their training and consider the totality of the circumstance they would encounter.

    If you wanted to carry a handgun our State’s Concealed Carry law would give you the benefits you stated in your email.

    This email has been sent to the Mayor and City Council of Overland Park and Lenexa.
    I am looking to see if there is a local law prohibiting open carry of a handgun with in your City (Overland Park or Lenexa)
    I live in Olathe and regularly carry a weapon for personal security, but my family and I would like to enter into surrounding cities to shop.
    Any information would be appriecated.

    Thank you
