    Michigan

    Michigan is an open carry state. Residents do not require a permit to open carry. Out of state resident do but that is do to being able to bring the gun into the state. Michigan recognizes all resident permits. It does not recognize not resident permits.

    2. Can a resident of another state legally possess a pistol in Michigan?

    If you are a non-resident of Michigan with a valid concealed pistol permit from your home state, Michigan will recognize your permit (MCL 28.432 & MCL 28.432a). However, you must carry in conformance with any and all restrictions appearing on the permit. You are subject to Michigan's concealed pistol law including but not limited to restrictions on where a concealed pistol may be carried. Without a CPL, a non-resident may not have a pistol in Michigan.

    West Virginia does not allow open carry for non residents.

    I'm sure WVCDL would like to know about it and get it fixed.

    Unless you can point out something specifically in the WV Code which states that open carry applies to only residents only then it does not. I couldn't find anything in the book with a specific State code that outlaws it for non-residents.

    It really doesn't matter what screwed up interpretations law enforcement has. The courts interpret the rules, not the police. The police only play by them....or not.

    It's the "or not" part that really bugs me. The laws have become more and more ridiculous, and the cops are far more likely to simply arrest people and let the courts sort it out these days.

    Pennsylvania is an open-carry state as well - with no permit. Unless, of course, you're in Philadelphia, in which case you need a permit.

    Summary
    Tennessee is not a traditional open carry state. However, Tennessee is a shall-issue state that issues a carry permit that allows both open and concealed carry.


    State Constitution Article I, Section 26

    That the citizens of this State have a right to keep and to bear arms for their common defense; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms with a view to prevent crime.

    Minimum Age to OC No Statutory Limit

    Preemption Complete State Preemption of All Firearm Laws except those ordinances that were in effect at the time preemption was passed.

    NOTE: Almost all states allow local regulation of the discharge of firearms

    Open Car Carry Firearms may be openly carried in cars only with a permit/license.
