    Arrow open carry in kansas, lawrence and surrounding area.

    Ok so ive been real temped lately to OC in my town mainly because i love to excercise my rights whenever possible. Also, because i recently moved from Wichita were you can not OPEN CARRY. I was wondering if there is anyone out there that has done this? I called the local PD and they said it was legal just unloaded and no bullets can be in a mag or anything that would make it possible to load the gun quickly. I have the laws printed out on my person and have done this in Wal-mart on the way out to go shoot.
    is there anyone out there that does this on the regular??
    I have heard you get harrased by police but thats about it I just dont want to get thrown in jail.

    Also if there is not a "No firearms" sign posted it is LEGAL to carry inside their store?

    ive searched this forum and havent found much pertaining to Kansas. Any opions are welcome
    Thanks!

    Check out handgunlaws.us on here and click on Kansas. I like that you want to exercise your rights but what good is an unloaded firearm? If criminals think that is a law also that open carrying citizens can't have loaded firearms then I think your increasing your risk of becoming a target.

    I don't know the law but I agree with CowboyColby, what is the point of carrying an unloaded firearm? I'm all for open carry but not unloaded. Get your concealed carry permit and do that, no need to advertise that you are a gun owner.

    Go to Topeka, open carry is legal there (loaded).

    Sounds like KS needs a state preemptive policy where localities cannot make rules governing guns. What a mess. Based on what was said in this thread, there are at least 3 different standards in the state and the gun owner is supposed to know what applies when he drives a few miles. That is NUTS!!!

    Don't forget Kathleen Sebelius is from Kansas, and the folks in Lawrence thought she was too conservative. Said as a Kansas native with fond memories of Lawrence and KC.

    so in topeka its legal to have it loaded. I was reading the laws and what i got out of it is that you cant have any rounds in a mag or something that would make loading the weapon quick but can still carry rounds with you . Yeah dont get me wrong i think its stupid too, I Cant get my CC for another 2years because of a DUI awhile back.... So do you OC in Topeka, im in lawrence myself. I thought topeka was one of those towns that doesnt allow it, I might be mistaken maybe only Wichita and areas in Johnson County

    A DUI will not stop you from getting a KS permit.

    There are several places in Kansas you can 'open carry', just don't plan on Wichita, Wyndotte cty or Johnson cty being one of them. Topeka changed it's laws due to the conceal carry laws and accidentally left out anything against open carry. When they caught it, and reviewed it, they decided to leave it alone..... leaving it legal to open carry (loaded, etc) in Topeka. Many places in Kansas, you can open carry, but because municipalities can make it illegal, you just have be certain of which ones.

    You can open carry on your land, your business, or land you lease.

    I think you are getting the "transportation of a weapon" guidelines /laws .... mixed up with open carry. With "open carry" , it's more often a matter that the laws don't say you can't... so nothing is said in the laws when it's not illegal.

    Conceal Carry --- DUI's >> SB306 was passed and effective July 1, 2010 , and you may want to check the AG's site , specifically :
    http://www.ksag.org/files/2010_Summa...-_Website2.pdf

    First, a quick synopsis of what was removed from the criminal history disqualifications.

    (2) DUI’s: currently, felony DUI convictions or 2 misdemeanor DUI convictions
    (which includes diversions) within the 5 years immediately before application
    would disqualify an applicant; now only a felony DUI will disqualify an
    applicant (see state law explanation below for further explanation of this point);



    There were a lot of changes / improvements made in 2010, effective July 1, and some in 2009. If you haven't reviewed these, even most of the where you cannot conceal carry with a license has been eliminated.

    Go to : www.ksccw.com as well, as there are a lot this on there that can help you figure it out, or an attorney familiar with the laws 'should' know. Or, the email the AG's office and ask them, they have been extremely helpful on things.

    Kansas , you can almost carry a gun concealed anywhere if you have a CCH..... "unless" it is posted by the owner. Liquor stores, bars, etc. are not prohibted.
    The Ks Gov mansion and buildings, all Fedl lands, and a very few others are all that are prohibited.... "unless " posted with the approved AG signage. About all state office buildings are posted, but not restricted by law unless they are.

    "Open carry" is the only issue, and still... most places it's legal , except larger cities who have prohibted it and college towns. (such as Lawrence & Manhattan that the OP brings up).
