Overland Park council approves open carry of guns

Open Carry Approved In Overland Park

One day after Overland Park voted to change the rules on carrying a gun in the open, the city is dealing with some questions.

The Overland Park city council voted 11-1 Monday night to allow residents to openly carry their handguns in most public places for the first time.

The move comes after the state legislature passed a law essentially making it illegal for cities to restrict gun owners from carrying their weapons openly in public. The state attorney general recently confirmed the validity of the law.

    Glad to see your area getting open carry. Its still up in the air here. Its not illegal but a lot frown upon it. I’d rather just conceal carry and have the plan of surprise on my side if needed.
