    Kansas does not preempt local jurisdictions related to OC generally (meaning that some/many local jurisdictions ban open carry). However, the Kansas concealed carry laws do allow for license holders to OC in vehicles even in jurisdictions that ban OC.

    Please see this thread for more info, but don't just read the first couple posts: http://forum.opencarry.org/forums/sh...Open-Carry-Law

    KSA 21-4201 and 75-7c (the CCH law]

    Kansas law allows anyone legally allowed to posses a firearm and carry it unconcealed in a car, on the seat or dash, but not in a glove box. The concealed carry law covers handguns only since July 1, 2010 due to passage of SB 306.
    Cities are not allowed to restrict or make any law on concealed carry and any criminal charges for a person licensed under KSA 75-7c is done in a District Court and not a municipal [hopping animal] court.
    Kansas laws are pretty good, still need of some tweaks. In a few months we will have a good governor and the laws should get better still.
    There is a Castle Doctrine in several chapters,

    Ooooh! Thank you so very much.
    I'll be visiting relatives for the holidays & was trying to figure out where to read up on KS laws.
    (Probably won't OC 'cause of their sensibilities... but it's a nice change from WI.)
