Handguns in Totoville

Well, it looks like our governor finally grew a set.

Totoville, (aka the State of Kansas) has a hodgepodge of laws governing the transportation of handguns. State law was, in many cases, cast aside for more restrictive county and/or city laws.

What could be legal in one city could get you thrown in jail in another city. What a mess, especially if one did a substantial amount of travel within the state.

Now we have a new state law, which permits carrying a handgun in your vehicle, provided it is cased and unloaded. This law takes effect July 1, 2005 and has an additional provision that no local ordnance can be more restrictive.
