Let's roll folks, time for open carry to the max in Kansas, to include picnics in local parks which have open carry bans.
The 2 AG Opinions clarify that localities may not generally ban loaded open carry on foot:
Further, any such reasonable regulations on loaded open carry on foot, e.g., requiring holsters, do not apply to persons holding Concealed Handgun Licenses (CHLs).
Finally, it should be noted that enforcement of "reasonable regulations" on open carriers is largely impossible as, under the Fourth Amendment, absent reasonable suspicion that crime is afoot, local police cannot seize open carriers to inspect to see if the gun is loaded.
