It will be their right as well as the good-ole-boys. What I am saying that the preacher, the deputy and Grandma ain't gonna appreciate it, but there won't be a dang thing they can do about it, cause what is good for the goose, is good for the gander.

On my next trip to New Orleans, maybe I will get some bandoleers and hog-legs, for the brief trip through Miss., but I promise I won't wear my drawers around my knees. (oh damn, I did it again)
Again, the people who open carry don't tend to fit your racial profiling. You're doing nothing but making yourself look like an ass for trying to beat this horse.

There are blacks and Hispanics everywhere. Open carriers tend to be middle class white people.

Funny enough, a buddy of mine was expressing a similar concern to your example to a deputy last week and then related the conversation to me. Third hand translation: Any "suspicious person" can be questioned/"interviewed" now, and will remain subject to a similar interrogative even when they are allowed by law to "open carry" a firearm. IOW, if a deputy passes a row of people displaying "colors", gang signs, gang tattoos (presumably not butterflies), and similar "gang activity" items, that deputy can stop and chat the guys up and fish for a reasonable reason to run their ID's for warrants and such.

I don't know about the Hispanic farm hands; I guess they will watch for guys with 5 gallon buckets and chicken cages?

We should get a final answer today if Kidd doesn't try to drag this out any longer.

He put a permanent injunction on it so now a new bill would have to be written & quite possibly suffer the same fate. "Unconstitutionally vague" is one of the dumbest things I've heard in a while. It's all about money, the justice system needs criminals & open carry would sure put a dent in it.

I'm still not 100% clear on how a circuit court judge in Hinds county can put the whole state on hold, legally?

I wonder what the latest is on Tate County (lived there, booooring), since their Sheriff had said he would go ahead with the open carry allowance? http://www.myfoxmemphis.com/story/22726702/desoto-and-tate-co-to-allow-open-carry

I think he stirred up a legal hornets nest. There were 350 to 400 pissed off people protecting he first time & the majority open carried to the event. I'll be damned if one person decides what's good enough for the whole but then again, I've been damned plenty.

Aside from the justice system I think they're worried that nobody will buy permits anymore. What's unconstitutional is having to pay to exercise a right.

I just called the Bateville Highway Patrol Office to verify whether or not if it's ok to open carry with a permit, she said no. Is she misinformed or am I?

She is. Contact a lawyer.
