Thread: If it's legal to open carry, and concealed carry with a permit...

    According to what statute? The only state for which that is true, that I am aware of, is Mississippi:

    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. 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 said that a handgun in a holster is concealed in part, a License to Carry a Concealed Pistol or Revolver is required to openly carry a handgun in a holster in Mississippi.
    In most states, if the average person can tell that the exposed part of a firearm IS a firearm, it is considered openly carried.

    Missouri and Oklahoma are the only two that I am aware of. I guess I should have said COULD be instead of WOULD be.

    My bad.

    Someone should walk down the street with a handgun in their hand, pointed at the ground. Then when questioned, "Well, you guys won't allow me to put it in a holster because you butcher the english language, so this is how I have to OC it."

    Of course then they would just butcher "brandishing" and arrest you.

    Do the taxpayers in that state need to require a dictionary be in front of their judges and legislators?
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    that's hilarious, this guy really knows his rights. I'm glad that his actions are in response to such an asinine law. I can't believe there is a law on the books that you can't carry a gun in a holster.
