    I OC'd in Leavenworth this year for several hours going in and out of shops in the area, and am happy to report zero issues. Who cares what the city laws are? That's what preemption is for If you are afraid of being harassed by the local law enforcement, bring cameras and people.

    With open carry if the city ordinance doesn't say anything then it reverts to KS state law and is legal. This is the way we want it to be!!

    Concealed carry is preempted by state statutes so cities can't pass anything move restrictive than state law and can only post no gun signs to restrict
