    Exclamation What I saw this weekend

    My family and I took a 4 hour roadtrip in search of a 1970-73 nova for my son. While on the road a guy on I-65 in Alabama was letting the whole world see his Glock while weaving in and out of traffic on his bent over little rocket bike. I was a little surprised to see this but it was securely tucked in an inside the waste band type holster.
    His jacket and shirt had pulled up and the wind carried them up over his back...exposing his weapon.
    Thoughts?
    Concerns?
    Comments?

    Thumbs up Okay in Alabama.

    Open carry is legal in Alabama. One caveat is that, to carry in a vehicle, one needs a license to carry, whether open or concealed. Attorney General opinion here:

    Sweet Home Alabama! Yeah, we are pretty liberal in our ways of carry here. Just have to use some common sense when doing so. Would he get pulled over? No. Would he scare the hell out of Nancy Pelosi? YES!

    Carrying on a motorcycle is a *****, ain't it?
    Thoughts?
    So what?
    Concerns?
    None at all, open carry should be universally acceptable.
    Comments?
    Laws vary from state to state and all of them restrict our rights to one degree or another. This is too uncommon:

    My thoughts. If it is legal for him in Alabama to carry open then there is no problem if that is the way he wants to carry. Would I myself do it ? No because I would rather carry concealed as I would rather have the element of surprise on my side if I need to use it.

    EXACTLY. I have no problem with open-carry, but I would much rather not advertise to other folks what I have on me.

    Surely he could devise some type of mount where he could fire while riding. LOL.

    Sometimes, it seems like somebody else has already had every great idea:
