Do you have to have a permit to open carry like you do to conceal carry?
No look up your local state laws
All depends on your state law on open carry. where ru from?
I'm wondering about Colorado laws
No credential is required to open carry in Ohio.
In Pennsylvania, no credential is required to open carry... EXCEPT in Philadelphia. One must have a PA License to Carry a Firearm (LTCF) in order to carry AT ALL in Philadelphia.
There is a licensing procedure for security guards. That is the only formalized O/C licensing.
Otherwise O/C is just a fringe issue that has ballooned from the Old West days, mostly applicable to woodlands or deserts or your own private land now.
I doubt that any business or person wants you on their property in O/C mode. That's why CCW mode is superior where available, LIKE IN COLORADO. Jeeze just get the permit and be done with it.
You're lucky you don't live in NYS, NYC, DC or ILL.
Urban Dictionary: shoobee
Usually derogatory. A tourist at the (New Jersey) shore. He can often be identified by his pasty palor and inapprpriate clothing, e.g. black knee-socks with bobos (inexpensive footware), plaid shorts, and a shirt emblazoned with "I'm With Stupid." Etymology: said to derive from the "shoebox" in which shoobees once packed their lunches. Alternative etymology: from the refrain of popular Philadelphia music of 1950's and 1960's (example: "shoobee doo-wop"). Often shortened to shoob.
"Why do these ********** shoobees have to brake at every ********** intersection??"
"Hey, check out the shoob!"
a derogatory term for tourist because tourists sometimes wear shoes at the beach
dude a: look at that friutcake wearing shoes in the sand!
dude b: ya what a shoobee!
Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman. Amerika: a place where the serfs are afraid of the action the police may take against them for perfectly legal behavior.
The actual truth is..
Whether or not open carry is legal in the State you live in depends on the laws in your own State... and laws differ from State to State. And since laws differ from State to State, open carry in some States... like Michigan.. is legal in public and in many businesses without a permit!. It is not limited to woodlands, deserts, or your own private land. Please do not listen to those on the internet trying to pass off their anti gun opinions as factual law but do a search for the actual firearms laws for your own State.
As for businesses not wanting folks open carrying in their businesses... some do not but most have absolutely no problem with it... and that is something NOT limited to just one State. For example... if you would like to see how open carry is accepted in Michigan please pay a visit to:

One other thing ...
"the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" means the government .. shall not restrict the right to bear arms. And when the government requires a person to ask permission to be given a "permit"... then the government is in control of who can, and who can't, bear an arm unless they have a "permit". That means those "permits" are the exact infringements that "shall not be infringed" refers to. The infringement of the government being in control of who is "allowed" to carry a gun.
So... those who defend, recommend, and espouse, that everyone should just "get a permit" are actually defending governmental................ gun control.
