Can you carry a registered firearm in all 50 states, or just in Kansas?

In Kansas, carrying a firearm in an unconcealed manner “is a local issue where some (municipalities) may allow it and others do not,” said Ashley Anstaett, spokeswoman for Attorney General Steve Six. Whether the gun is registered has no impact on the matter, as firearm registration isn’t required in Kansas. Some states might have similar laws, while others may not allow guns to be carried in public at all, she said. “Individuals need to consult the local law enforcement authorities in any jurisdiction where they plan to travel, within Kansas or in another state, if they wish to open-carry a firearm,” Anstaett said.
