    I'm on my way to Arkansas in the morning. I'll be going through Kansas. Can I open carry every where in Kansas? Any places besides the usual that does not allow it? Any counties where it is ilegal? I have a Colorado CCW and I am going to check Reciprocity state to see if I'm legal concealed. I'd probably rather go concealed than open to not have any hassles while I'm away from home.

    Thanks Bryan


    Never mind. I just looked it up and I can carry concealed in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and Arkansas. Those are the only States I'll be traveling through. I'll just carry concealed.

    KS does not preempt localities on open carry except in vehicles, but even then, that preemption only applies to KS CHP holders or official recognized CHPs.

    See travel map for your unlicensed carry rights.

    Lanceegarrison,



    I am respectfully making this post because your thread is incorrect.



    Per the President of the Kansas Rifle Association Patricia Stoneking and Kansas NRA Legislative representative Jordan Austin if you have a Kansas CCW license it does not preempt city & county open carry laws.



    Bottom line if you have a Kansas CCW and you open carry in a non open carry city you can be arrested.



    When the Personal & Family Protection Act (Concealed Carry) originally passed in 2006 I thought I could open carry anywhere in Kansas as well. Boy was I proven wrong.



    I wish we had open carry preemption!!

    Hello Earl

    Like I said I just want to see what the AG of Kansas will say.

    I'm Hard-Headed its a simple case of right and wrong.

    Even as a child I pouted, an cryed out thats not fair.

    I went to wichita PD a spoke to the officers about wichita city code.

    Not one could tell me under what code the would arrest me for openly carring in wichita.

    One told me he would find out, they were very nice...

    Has a ccw holder ever been arrested for open carry in ks?

    I work for Sedgwick County 911. I will tell you first hand this will end very badly. I have yet to have seen the law saying that OC is illegal because Wichita is very bad about allowing their laws to be easily accessible to the public. Until proven otherwise through exhaustive research, consider Wichita "OC no mans land."

    And on the non-legal end... WPD, if anything, is very aggressive in the way they handle calls regarding weapons. I've only seen a few "man with a gun" calls being regular citizens minding their own business. Most are legit reasons for concern or someones over excited mistake. The officers have adapted accordingly.

    All the normal joe-gun owner calls have been in the County and are phoned in by ignorant passerbys.

    My $0.02

    If anyone has any questions regarding specific things... I would be more than happy to use my daily resources to get the answer for you. I like calling up various PD brass and BSing with them. It gives me something to do on my lunch break.

    It would be great to see Wichita go OC eventually. But as in most states that are dominated legislatively by one or two crime infested cities... I wouldn't hold my breath. I yearn for the day I'll be returning to Colorado and resume my regular OC's practices. I've been legally defenseless since moving back to Kansas in March due to no OC and 6 month residencey for CCW.

    Mr. Garrison



    In short, the answer to your question is, no, a CCH license does not entitle individuals to carry a firearm openly.



    In your email, you highlighted the language of 12-16,124(b)(2) in yellow and further highlighted the language “not licensed under the personal and family protection act” in green. What you should note is that (b)(2) is separated by 2 clauses – the first clause deals with open carry of firearms “on one’s person”; the second clause deals with carrying a firearm openly “in the immediate control of” the person.



    Under clause 1, cities and counties are still free to regulate anyone (CCH licensees included) who is openly carrying a firearm on their person.

    Under clause 2, cities and counties can still regulate open carry of a firearm within one’s immediate control if that person is not a CCH licensee.



    Clause 2 was designed to allow CCH licensees to remove their weapon when they are transporting it in their vehicle and not have to worry about local ordinances etc.
