Thread: Have you open carried?

  1. #211
    I do realize after the fact I should have said "my state does not attempt to limit my right." I think I'm still a bit jaded from having lived in NYS for 20+ years, where if I wanted to exercise my right I had to not only hold out my hand and beg for permission but also my wallet, I also had to allow them to probe almost every aspect of my life and then turn around and wait 6+ months only to be turned down because some failed lawyer (judge) is having a bad day. I suppose I'm just still in awe at how inane NY's laws regarding the Second Amendment really are now that I live in a free state, whether it be the AWB or their limiting use on almost every type of firearm.

    Although I realize you can never technically lose your right, living in a state such as NY, IL or CA, it surely feels like you are not allowed without restriction the same rights as the rest of the country. It truly feels like I have moved to a different country and I only moved 30 miles.

    Have you open carried?

    That's why here in Vermont, it is called "Constitutional Carry". Our state Constitution affirms that it is our Right to carry as we see fit.

    “That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the State -- and as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they ought not to be kept up; and that the military should be kept under strict subordination to and governed by the civil power.”

  4. I open Carry EVERYWERE, unless its posted On PRIVATE property No weapons permitted unless LEO.

    Ive opened carried in bars,grocery stores, party stores,banks,hospitals(which they didn't mind or ask me to leave), Pretty much where i Went the gun went.

    Ive had new CPL carriers approach me asking if ive been harassed by OC. Police here dont harass you if you follow the law.

    I live in Socialist held Territory... Illinois. Ten minutes from Wisconsin and I love to Open Carry there. I use a Military type Thigh Holster, very comfortable and easy access, no matter if I'm sitting, standing or whatever. I have been to Milwaukee and had no issues with the LEO"s, one asked where I got the Thigh Holster. I think he just wanted to make conversation and see where my head was at, I enjoy talking to people and it is diffenately a conversation starter with the guy's who are CCW. I have a Arizona Non Resident CCW License, so I sometimes Conceal Carry in Wisconsin, like at the Harley Museum. That was cool, but I prefer Open Carry.

    Last night we went out to eat a a very popular Mexican Resturant. There were Six of us which included mymother who is 86 yrsold My sister who lives in Boston Mass. My daughter and her son and my wife and I. A man probably in his Mid 60s wilth long hair and a beard sat at the table next to us and as he began to sit down he removed his jacket exposing his side arm. There was to attempt to hide the weapon on his part and his holster was in no way designed to be concealed. Everyone at our table noticed the weapon. Only two people comented on it at our table. My sister when she said "what's this do you live in the wild west" and my grandsons response to her " I like it it makes me feel safer". Everyone in my family knows that I carry concealed and they forget about it. My sister thinks I'm nuts, but everyone else excepts it. I think its all in the area in which you live. Here in Misssouri most people don't think anything of or about open carry or concealed carry for that matter. If your from Mass, Ill, or Calif guns make your nervious. No one else in the resturant seemed to notice the open carry gun.

Currently we are lobbing for Constitutional carry as well as Disparity of Force to be passed.

    Also the term firearm under Title 18 of PA Code, Uniform Firearms Act, 6102. Definitions are as follows: "Firearm."Any pistol or revolver with a barrel length less than 15 inches, any shotgun with a barrel length less than 18 inches or any rifle with a barrel length less than 16 inches, or any pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun with an overall length of less than 26 inches. The barrel length of a firearm shall be determined by measuring from the muzzle of the barrel to the face of the closed action, bolt or cylinder, whichever is applicable. Long Guns under Pa Law are covered by the PA Game/Wildlife code.

    I personally don't care how another carries, because they are as concerned for their safety as I am concerned to me and my loved ones safety. I am however an OC Activist because it is an clear expression of our Freedoms. I open carry because in 1984 I got caught up in my cover garment and ended up getting stabbed because I couldn't clear, still I survived he didn't. A lesson I do not want repeated.

    Ed, what's an Oath Keeper?
    Does it refer to an organization?

    Oath Keepers » Oath Keepers – Guardians of the Republic
    Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like-minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God.
    Our Oath is to the Constitution and never expires.
    I took my oath in September 1974 when I went in the Corps 3BN 1MR. Some took theirs when they became Police Officers, others were elected to an office, and some just took theirs for the country, etc...

    Have you taken the Oath?

    Declaration of Orders We Will NOT Obey
    1. We will NOT obey any order to disarm the American people.
    2. We will NOT obey any order to conduct warrantless searches of the American people, their homes, vehicles, papers, or effects -- such as warrantless house-to house searches for weapons or persons.
    3. We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.
    4. We will NOT obey orders to impose martial law or a “state of emergency” on a state, or to enter with force into a state, without the express consent and invitation of that state’s legislature and governor.
    5. We will NOT obey orders to invade and subjugate any state that asserts its sovereignty and declares the national government to be in violation of the compact by which that state entered the Union.
    6. We will NOT obey any order to blockade American cities, thus turning them into giant concentration camps.
    7. We will NOT obey any order to force American citizens into any form of detention camps under any pretext.
    8. We will NOT obey orders to assist or support the use of any foreign troops on U.S. soil against the American people to “keep the peace” or to “maintain control” during any emergency, or under any other pretext. We will consider such use of foreign troops against our people to be an invasion and an act of war.
    9. We will NOT obey any orders to confiscate the property of the American people, including food and other essential supplies, under any emergency pretext whatsoever.
    10. We will NOT obey any orders which infringe on the right of the people to free speech, to peaceably assemble, and to petition their government for a redress of grievances.
