    The Raymore City Council on Monday passed the first reading of a bill championed by council member Jeff Cox that would loosen gun restrictions in the city and most notably, allow qualified city council members to carry a concealed weapon into meetings.

    Cass county has an OC ban, interesting to hear aboutRaymond andwelcomed. Wonder ifCass Deputy would makearrest inside Raymond city limits? We will see......the Rep for the area is Scott Largent...who carried the preemption legislation last year.....Passed the house, but didn't make it out of committee in the Senate.Things will be easier after McDonald and we will see how it goes this time around.

    The article in the Star-Herald says the law allows an unloadedweapon to be carried in the passenger compartment. I thought you were allowed to carry your weapon loaded am I wrong?

    I hope this helps: Vehicles


    Under the statute the right to carry loaded concealed handguns in one’s home is extended to one’s vehicle. This extended right is confined to persons 21 years old or older who lawfully possesses the firearm. This right only applies to “concealable” firearms (they mean handguns). It does NOT apply to rifles, carbines, or shotguns. It doesn’t have to make sense, it’s just the law.

    Jonathan...fantastic....this was the only county that I knew of that had a complete ban on OC. Just read the code....very nice.

    Great job!

    i live in Cass County (Raymore) and dont understand why its the only county around here that doesnt allow open carry, i have my MO CCW and carry my fire arm on my person most everywhere i go (concealed), in my car (in plain sight), loaded clip etc. so this IS legal right? and im not going to get in trouble if i get pulled over? i saw that this is up for vote in raymore on the news lastnight, i kind of support it however i think that if these council members can carry a CCW into these meetings/placesthen the citizens should be able to as well. i know that a council member isnt going to protect me if i was at some meeting if sh*t hit the fan, the first person they are going to protect is themselves, not the public. i like the idea MUCH more of me being able to protect myself instead of relieing on someone else. i just read that bill 2514 that says:

    bill 2514 removes the prohibition of open carry in city limits and allows anyone over 21 to transport a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, both of which are already allowed by state law and thus unenforceable at the city level.

    so does this mean that we CAN open carry in Cass County/Raymore now? has this past yet?
