Ohio also allows open carry without a permit.

I expect there would be FAR fewer arguments and fights.

Open carry is legal in Alabama now. So far so good. I have seen few carrying, but it will probably increase as people grow accustomed to it.

Summary
Mississippi is an open carry state and the state constitution appears to guarantee this right. Further, localities are generally preempted under state law from enacting local gun control ordnances that might restrict open carry. Prior to 2013 however, Miss. Code §§ 97-37-1 & §
45-9-101 operate together to ban carriage of a handgun “concealed in whole or in part” unless the carrier is inside a motor vehicle or possesses a License to Carry a Concealed Pistol or Revolver. As the Mississippi courts have previously said that a handgun in a holster is concealed in part, a License to Carry a Concealed Pistol or Revolver was apparently required to openly carry a handgun in a holster in Mississippi for many years. However in 2013 the Mississippi legislature passed a bill clarifying that no license was required to open carry a handgun in a holster.

Go way back into the late 1800's, when the courts considered conceal carry something that only would be done with nefarious intent, and OC was considered legal and acceptable.

i do think that there should be permits but they should be a little easier to get,it is a process to get them now it should be streamlined a little in my opinion but being i live in california i really can not complain because over all it is considered easy in the county i live in.
i do not feel that crime would increase if more people had a ccw i feel the old saying rings true "an armed society is a polite society"

An armed society must be a polite society.

It is legal but effectively it is not when they make it illegal to even enter a vehicle while OC-ing without a cpl.

Michigan just urks me, I mean, all my handguns are registered to the state and legally owned, I have a hunter's safety certificate, driver's license and the list goes on and on, but because I may or may not have anxiety they won't consider giving me a cpl without a fight, all the time being that OC is legal for me. Just makes no sense.

That is an interesting graphic. Look at the color blocks and think about what the different groups have in common.
