    Travel across Kansas

    We will be traveling across Kansas and Missouri soon and will have a pistol and permit. Is there any way to still visit sites such as the Cavalry Museum at Fort Riley or the Hiistory Museum at Fort Leavenworth?

    Read the laws of the state.

    You can probably figure out what your options are in about 10 miinutes.

    Since both Forts Riley and Leavenworth are active US military bases, Kansas state laws are, as far as I can see, of no help - at least as covered by handgunlaw.com. I will see if the Kansas state website is of help. Thanks.

    That's correct, because they are Federal property the laws you need to be sure you are following are the Federal laws. I would advise you to simply give one, or both, a call and ask for their assistance. I'm sure you'll have to have a secure, lockable location to store the firearms at the very least, but they may not allow them on the property under any conditions.

    Whatever you do, stay clear of TX expat's place. Nothing but trouble there.

    Firearms are not only allowed at my place, they're darn near mandatory!

    Kansas law change July 1; gun buster signage is a request (ie no longer has power of law. Carry if you want; if carrying and asked to leave you must and you need to disarm before reentering or it is trespass.) NOW, you are dealing with FEDERAL LAW, which IIR is a AUOTMATIC NO CARRY ZONE. As long as your MI permit is legal in KS you are good to go in the state.

    I work on Ft. Leavenworth (DAC) retired in 05, CC is a no go, there's signs on the gates as you come in.

    Weapons are to be registered, locked in a case, and ammunition kept separate. A bunch of us transport weapons on/off constantly between hunting, shooting, and matches. As long as you follow the rules, don't "offer" any extra information, you'll be OK. As far as I know there is no clause written for visitors, most of the rules are geared towards permanent party, and civilians assigned or residing on the fort. Here's a clip from the weapons registration page:

    Storing / Transporting Personal Weapons (Reference; AR 190-11 and CAC & FTLVN 190-11)
    For individuals residing on FT LVN weapons must be stored in either a Unit Arms Room or in family quarters if adequate security is
    provided. Locked gun cases and trigger locks are generally considered adequate. Weapons must be stored unloaded and all
    reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure weapons and ammunition are inaccessible to unauthorized persons and children.
    Weapons on post will be kept under double lock when not attended. One lock may be considered the quarter’s entrance door and the
    second lock may be a locked room, closet, or cabinet, or a locked container, trigger lock, locked cable, chain, or rod through the
    firearm’s guard or barrel.

    Weapons can only be carried in a vehicle when traveling to and from authorized hunting, target practice, matches, or off post
    locations.

    When transporting weapons, they must be secured in the vehicle's trunk or, if the vehicle doesn't have a lockable trunk, encased in
    such a manner that it's not readily accessible to the driver or passengers. Concealing a firearm in the glove compartment is not
    authorized.

    Weapons must be transported unloaded and ammunition must be stored separately from the weapon.

    The registration form must be readily available at all times while a weapon is located on FT LVN property.

    Concealed weapon permits are not valid on FT LVN.

    This form may be used as a temporary registration permit during the three business day period given to register the weapon(s).
    The form:

    Been awhile since I've been on a base, but last I knew, they had lockers here (one I'm near) that you could lock up your gun before going onto the base. Call the base #'s and just ask them.... they don't bite.

    If you have other questions about Kansas.... let us know, and we can probably answer them. It's rather easy in Kansas..... in comparison to many other places with lists of where you can't carry, etc.
