It would appear from the two AG opinions that local power to regulate open carry is very limited - so much so that localities cannot ban open carry ouright.
Importantly, the latest AG Opinion opines that the entire weight of the preemption statute applies to local "carry" regulations because, per US S. Ct. ruling in Muscarello v. U.S., 524 U.S. 125, 135 (1998), "carrying" firearms is included by the term "transporting."
The Kansas preemption statute is at http://kansasstatutes.lesterama.org/...12-16x124.html.
Can one of you Kansas experts draw up a little 2-dimensional diagram to communicate the limits of local power to regulate open carry to open carriers living in or traveling through Kansas?
It appears the extent of local power may depend on (1) where the open carrier is (local property, public place on foot, and public place in vehicle), and (2) whether the open carrier is a concealed carry licensee.
And what does the term "loaded" mean under Kansas law?
