As of today, the state of Kansas allows weapons to be openly carried in public, because we can never have enough guns. To gun humpers, “An armed society is a polite society” because a little crossfire never hurt anyone.

For the politicians who pass these laws, I wonder why weapons aren’t allowed to be carried right into their offices, but public buildings are exempt from the law.

According to KAKE, business owners can post signs prohibiting open-carry inside their establishments.

Those under the influence of drugs or alcohol are not allowed to openly carry a weapon and we totally believe that inebriated gun toting individuals will adhere to that rule because drunks are always cooperative and never angry. Angry drunks are just a myth.

KAKE reports:

Guns are not allowed in schools.

There are also other exceptions that include the size of the barrel of the gun.

Overland Park has allowed open carry for some time and it is rare to see someone carry a weapon openly.

The new law has mixed emotions. Some object to seeing someone toting a gun inside a restaurant or grocery store, saying it will cause fear. Others say it is legal and it is about people protecting themselves.

If you would like to print out a sign prohibiting someone from carrying a weapon inside your business, you can go to the Kansas Attorney General’s Office.

So signs are still legal then? That’s nice.



The incomparable @CarlaAkins did a bit of research on this because I’m a lazy git.Open Carry is legal for those without a valid permit/license: Individuals with criminal histories which include expunged felony offenses may now be eligible for licensure. Yay!

Representative Jim Howell, of Derby, authored HB 2578 and says, “The main part of that bill really is to create clarity in our gun laws.” I think it’s pretty clear that there is a bare minimum of “gun laws” in Kansas.

I can’t imagine what could go wrong.

    Another reason to stay the hell out of Kansas. I wouldn’t be caught dead there.

      I don’t know…must have some pretty good hallucinogenics there…look at the trip Dorothy took…

    So now folks who previously had to wear their shirts untucked can now tuck their shirts in.

    Last year a permit holder shot his wife in the leg while eating dinner in Overland Park. Yeah, he’d been drinking.

    • BanditBasheert July 2nd, 2014 at 11:32 am

      Wow – he’d be violating that law wouldn’t he?

    • Anomaly 100 July 2nd, 2014 at 11:35 am

      Good grief!

    The prohibition against open carry in the state legislature building is quite telling and indicative of what the politicians who pass these laws really think about the dangers of proliferating firearms.

    • neworleans878 July 2nd, 2014 at 3:18 pm

      They really put themselves in a separate class above us proletariat, don’t they?

      Like SCOTUS…no buffer zones around abortion clinics, but don’t you dare demonstrate on the steps of their cathedral!

    • Mark July 3rd, 2014 at 1:09 pm

      That prohibition isn’t a state law, it’s a federal law. But don’t let facts get in the way of your anti-gun crusade.

    How long does it take a good guy with a gun to turn into a bad guy with a gun?

    • Jeff Allen July 2nd, 2014 at 11:31 am

      Same amount of time it takes for a good guy with a kitchen knife, baseball bat, tire iron, rope, car, two hands, pool,…..

      • arc99 July 2nd, 2014 at 11:33 am

        and when the day comes that roving bands of men with kitchen knives, baseball bats and tire irons are roaming around shopping malls, you will have a point.

        • Jeff Allen July 2nd, 2014 at 11:39 am

          and when the day comes that these open carry “demonstrations” turn into anything but a penis measuring contest, you will have a point as well.

          • Bunya July 2nd, 2014 at 1:46 pm

            How many cases of road rage consist of nuts wielding baseball bats, kitchen knives and tire irons?

          • Jeff Allen July 2nd, 2014 at 5:05 pm

            Baseball bats and tire irons, quite a few…kitchen knives? Not sure.

    Meanwhile, in Georgia, Everyone feeling safer now?

    First day of new gun law leads to arrest

    VALDOSTA — On the first day of the new Georgia Safe Carry Protection Act, a misunderstanding between two armed men in a convenience store Tuesday led to a drawn firearm and a man’s arrest.

    • Jeff Allen July 2nd, 2014 at 11:37 am

      actually nothing prevented those two from carrying their firearms into that convenience store before the law, so no evidence of any connection to the law.

      • arc99 July 2nd, 2014 at 12:47 pm

        yeah I know. whatever problems arise from people carrying guns are never, ever attributable to laws making it easier for more people to carry guns. got it..

        the fact is that if you actually read the story which is a newspaper account in the local media, the disagreement was over the interpretation of the new law. there is ample evidence that this incident was directly related to the new law.

        • Jeff Allen July 2nd, 2014 at 1:03 pm

          still nothing prevented the presence of firearms in the store prior to the law and you can’t legislate stupidity. So unless you are advocating a complete ban of civilian gun ownership, then these laws neither promote nor prevent violence. I will listen to and respect one who argues for the across the board gun bans, I will disagree, but will respect the stand. Lick and stick, feel good, toothless legislation does nothing.

    Kansas is the new Kabul.

      I just moved here, and have never seen such arrogant people.

  8. paulmckc July 2nd, 2014 at 2:11 pm

    About the only reason the city of Overland Park did it, they were going to be sued by the group who wanted this law in the first place,so the city wouldn’t have to tie up taxpayer money in court.

  9. Mark July 3rd, 2014 at 1:08 pm

    The line about drunks following the law is laughable, since the true irony here is that liberals believe new gun laws will be followed by criminals. When there is a mass shooting, where is it usually at? A gun-free zone.

    Let’s go a step further and look at the political leanings of mass shooter… most lean Left.
