Anyway, when/if they do adopt open carry here, there will be a lot of folks that won't know it's been made legal, so you can expect a lot of stares, etc from some & maybe even some "he's got a gun" 911 calls. If you live in one of the liberal meccas, there will be harrasment from law enforcement because their mayor doesn't agree with the law.

On the other hand, it would be one more small step toward removal of the 'infringements' that our government has illegally forced on us over the years. For that reason, I feel that if we are given the opportunity, we should exercise it. Until it becomes widely accepted, those that are brave enough to do it will be catching it, but will be doing us all a favor.
This is my attitude on it. I open carry pretty often and yes I catch hell over it but I'm "taken one for the team" so to speak. Ill gladly bear that burden if it helps our rights in the long run.

Ive been reading alot of facebook posts this morning,and reading how quite a few people are against it. Even other LEOS are against it and talking about vigilante ignorance and wild west shootouts. REALLY? We have only had concealed carry here for over ten years now, what difference is open carry gonna make? If you cant see the gun its ok, but now a lift of your shirt tail over your gun is gonna generate shootings and raise vigilante behavior. It may be just me but i dont see the behavior difference.

Carry a revolver as a open carry if 6 ain't enough you can always carry an auto in your pocket

Here in Wyoming we have always had open carry. I have never known of a problem with it. The PD gets calls every summer from Low Country Tourist headed for Yellowstone. "OH" there is an armed man at the C Store.
