Good info! I OC all of the time because at 5'4" and 130 lbs kinda hard to find a place to truly CC. But then again I am from AZ, and being the Wild west and all, lots of people OC. I am certainly not John Wayne, nor am I making a fashion statement (well my holster is pink, does that count?) but I do believe in my right to protect myself if need be. I hope it never comes to that but then again over the last month there has been a shooting in a WalMart, 7-11 and last night an armed robbery of a grocery store so I never EVER leave home without it.

Guess I would rather live and explain to the police how I was in fear for my life and was forced to defend myself than lay there dying or raped wishing I would of had it.

To each there own, I see people carrying their guns and they look like they have no earthly right to own a firearm, but then again I see stupid drivers everyday too but they still have a car and are driving it. I get asked regularly if my gun is a Glock 40 (no it is a Beretta 9mm) and said person will go on to tell me about their buddy's Glock, I just smile and move on.

CO is unique in that the state constitution specifically prohibits CC. In 1876 only the 'bad guys' CC, real men 'wore' their guns!!!

Ohio's constitution is the same plus municipalities can't make gun control laws that violate the Ohio constitution.

Thirty-one states allow the open carrying of a handgun without any license or permit, although in some cases the gun must be unloaded. Thirteen states require some form of license or permit in order to openly carry a handgun.
Not quite true about Florida. Open carry is permitted going to, from, and during the following activities unless otherwise posted:
Range trips
Camping
Hunting
Fishing

Printing is no longer a major consideration and inadvertent momentary exposure of the firearm is no longer an issue.

Your website is over one year out of date. This is the danger of getting legal information off the internet. Laws change on a regular basis. If you're going to carry you need to know what the law is, not what the law was.

Default Open Carry Laws

I wish all states had constitutional carry. As it only makes since to me. Why do we have to pay for our right to carry guns concealed? Oh I know, $$$$$$$. By the way I mean loaded guns. I hear of states passing constitutional carry laws for unloaded gun which is about as useless as boobs on a boy


Never enough guns or ammo

Blanket statements like the could be described as stupid... My friend.

I CC every day, everywhere. All of my time is spent between WA and OR and should I ever feel threatened Id have no problem removing my cover garment to let aggressors know that attacking me is the equivalent of starting a gun fight.

OC deters attacks... It's why uniformed LEO's open carry.

Given your statement, I officially challenge you to find documented cases where citizens OCING guns were targeted by criminals.

Tack

so you feel it's alright to restrict someone's rights simply because of your opinions about OCing?

gee i am sure glad they are not allowing you to make laws.

there is no telling what you would do the 2nd amendment.

Default Open Carry Laws

I don't know! How we carry is as opinionated as what we carry! I do know this, if I'm Mr bad guy, robbing a convenient store, bank or any other place of business, I'm taking "Mr Responsible citizens" that has a big 1911 strapped on his side for the world and me to see out first. Personally, I think CC holds more advantages or gives me a better chance to survive a threat than OC! To me, the element of surprise, far out weighs any advantages OC might have! OC Just puts a big bullseye on our backs! Why mark or flag priority targets for BG? Remember, similar to the way we train, they are going to take out obvious targets that poses the biggest threat to there agenda. Hunting, fishing and the 1805 Wild West is great for OC! But 2014 urban America? I'm not feeling it! Just my opinion!!


Like guns, love people!!
