    Howdy from Haysville

    Just thought I'd stop in and say Hi. I've been lurking around here for quite a while, since I was deployed to Iraq. I got home in May, and have been OC'ing where allowed. I have decided to bite the proverbial bullet and allow the government to extort money from me by getting my concealed permit. At least that way I won't make myself a felon and lose my rights altogether. I do plan to continue to OC after I get my permit, tho.

    I had a brief discussion with a Haysville cop a few nights ago on my way home from work. I asked if HV had any ordinance banning OC. He proceeded to tell me that as long as I had a concealed permit, he didn't see anything wrong with it. I reminded him that the discussion wasn't about concealed carrying, and it's not about whether or not he sees anything wrong with it. Finally he admitted that he knew nothing about the subject and recommended that I go to the city's website, and read up on the ordinances. That proved to be a fruitless search.

    Anyway, I just thought I'd drop in and say hello, and if there are members from HV, I'd like to meet up sometime. Always looking for like-minded people to link up with.

    Actually, I just went thru the HV public code on their website, and under Chapter 11 - Public Offenses, there was no mention of carrying a firearm, with exception of minors. It's a crime (misdemeanor) to keep firearms to include BB Guns, Pellet Guns, Airsoft Guns, or Paintball guns within reach of a minor, unless it has a trigger lock installed.

    Open Carry Haysville

    That is good news for you that Haysville doesnít mention anything about open carry.

    The best city ordinances donít address OC at all. That means OC reverts to state law and is legal.

    I to have my concealed carry permit and I do what I call the transition. I go back and forth from OC to CC all the time. You may find a situation where itís better to CC. I probably CC 80% and OC 20%. I love OC the best!

    Yeah, I was quite happy to see that. Now, if Wichita would pull their heads outta their arses, that'd be nice!

    Hello mud flap from Haysville.

    I'm from Haysville too.

    My step father was on the city council and friends with the Chief of Police.

    We spoke to him about open carry . Haysville has a code called uniform public offence code just like derby or andover.

    This allows for loaded open carry. The police don't like it but the law is the law.

    I'm like minded you may want to Google my phone number.
