    How Confusing/

    And, WHO is the Militia again?

    (3) LAWFUL USES.—The provisions of ss. 790.053 and 790.06 do not apply in the following instances, and, despite such sections, it is lawful for the following persons to own, possess, and lawfully use firearms and other weapons, ammunition, and supplies for lawful purposes:
    (a) Members of the Militia, National Guard, Florida State Defense Force, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, organized reserves, and other armed forces of the state and of the United States, when on duty, when training or preparing themselves for military duty, or while subject to recall or mobilization;
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state,
    the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    I believe 43 states have some form of open carry, either privileged or a Right.
    this is a canard put forth by the OC zealots. for example they'll cite that NJ allows OC once you obtain a personal carry permit, the problem is that it is next to impossible to obtain the permit in NJ

    Even with states such as ca and nj removed, the majority of the US has open carry. Would you be satisfied if I changed 43 to 41?

    Next!
    WA is the same.
    I know Oregon, wyoming, oklahoma, Montana, dakota, iowa, indiana, Vermont, Alaska, Arizona, Carolina, Idaho and several others are open carry states.

    Shoulda read ahead to see the graphic before trying to list states. Thank-you for posting that pic

    Does anyone know of a concise list anywhere online?
