    In my first days of OC i carryed in OP, because the LEOs said it was legal, but after doing my own research I found out differently, then again the law makers dont work for you, at least you can carry in Olathe, there are very few cities in the kansas side that are legal.

    :celebrate

    have you seen my OC map
