Castle Doctrine in Kansas

I live in Texas where the Castle Doctrine extends my dwelling to include my vehicle. So naturally I carry in my vehicle frequently. I do not have a CCW. I am planning a two day trip to Kansas next week and I normally carry a handgun in my vehicle whenever I travel. I've never been to Kansas, do they have a similar law about carrying in vehicles? I'm probably going to to carry either way, but I would like to know if it is legal to carry concealed in a vehicle in Kansas. Or Oklahoma for that matter since I will be driving through.

l've heard police work is dangerous. Yes, that's why l carry a big gun. Couldn't it go off accidentally? l used to have that problem. What did you do about it?

Firearms may be openly carried in cars without any license except where localities have made open carry illegal; however, concealed handgun permits accepted by KS make the holder exempt from all local open carry bans.

So does this mean I must carry openly? For instance if I wanted to carry a gun in my suitcase I would be breaking the law?

Locked in trunk is o.k... I think if it's loaded, inside the vehicle, it must be exposed.
Same in Az.

The only places I am aware of that are a concern are: Junction City and Wichita. Not sure about Topeka, Lawrence, and KC.
How could you have a slogan like "freedom is slavery" when the concept of freedom has been abolished?
