As of July 1, 2014, there are no state or local laws in Kansas that regulate the manner of transporting a firearm in a vehicle. Under Kansas law, a person may transport a loaded firearm in a vehicle without any permit required, regardless of whether the loaded firearm is stored in a container or transported in plain view.1 Since July 1, 2014, Kansas has prohibited a city or county from enforcing local laws regulating the transportation of a firearm in a vehicle.2
