Cities navigate new Kansas law prohibiting gun regulations

HB 2578 went into effect Tuesday. Prairie Village and Lenexa repealed their bans on open carry in the past month while Overland Park, Merriam and Roeland Park repealed bans more than a year ago. Leawood and the consolidated government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kan., will remove their bans now that the state law is effective. Some cities, like Shawnee and Olathe, had no gun restrictions on the books.
