    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.

    Lenexa

    Please add Lenexa to the list of those banning OC. Here is a link to the municiple code. http://www.lenexa.com/LenexaCode/cod...sp?section=003
    Section 3-9-I-1 UNLAWFUL USE OF WEAPONS.

    A. Unlawful use of weapons is knowingly:
    4. Carrying any stun gun or firearm on one's person, whether concealed or not, except when the person is on his land, in his dwelling or in his fixed place of business, or unless such stun gun or firearm is unloaded and encased in a container which completely encloses the stun gun or firearm
    So based on what has happend in Wichita, and the AG opinions. What can be done? What can I do? I have no problem getting in contact with the city attorney, and suggesting that the may be in violation of state law, since they prohibit OC.

    Lenexa Open Carry

    Thank you for posting about Lenexa. I promise we will get to them soon.

    Right now there are a couple things in the works which I canít talk about. So just hold tight for the time being.

    Hopefully soon there will be an update.

    Thank you for defending the 2nd Amendment!

    "case-by-case basis"....not bases.
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    "Better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer" - English jurist William Blackstone.
    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
