    I am an unlucky one who can own a firearm..but because of a juvineil non-person, non-violent felony took his CCW course and paid my $250 but was denied. So i said fine I will open carry since state law says i can. But as we know Wichita city code say that you cannot not open carry a "loaded weapon". So if you carry without one in the pipe...as goes the legal term "loaded"...or if there is no mag in the gun...you are not violating any city code. So I am gonna practice my right to bear arms (with limitations) starting tomarrow. If i get arrested...its lawsuit time!

    If you're a convicted felon, mere POSESSION of a firearm is against the law.

    Fixed that for ya Techno...

    Techno's right about that youngun45 ...."posession of a firearm by a convicted felon" will get you another felony....worth maybe 10 years in prison.

    like i said it was a juvy offence....and i have paperwork from the FBI that says in black and white that i can own a firearm. they also sent me my rap sheet wich has that felony right on it. so they know i had the offense. but it was not a adult felony so i'm good. it only keeps me from obtaining my concield carry permit...because of Kansas disqualifing factors...if i lived in some other states i could get one. Which is crap...I can own a gun and open carry where permitted..but i can't CC. I also like how our government has now acknowledged our 2nd Ammendment right as an "individual" right so long as you are in your home. Does no one know what "bear" means???

    This isn't something I know much about but I believe that some states let people who don't live in that state get a CCW permit from that state. Find one of the states that will allow you to get a CCW with your record and without being a citizen of that state and get a CCW. However, you'll have to make sure its a state that kansas approves of its CCW. Im sure someone who knows more about this can step in and explain it. For some reason I thought Utah was one but im not sure.
