    Since these two cases, the law enforcement agencies in CT have been briefed that open carry is totally legal in CT.
    If I remember correctly, the Second Circuit Court affirmed probable cause for arrest in the Goldberg case. Goldberg sued, lost in district court and lost again in circuit court. Not sure where the win is here.

    "...We have considered plaintiff’s remaining arguments and find them to be without merit.Accordingly, for the foregoing reasons, the judgment of the district court is AFFIRMED."

  3. I don't see any reason to open carry. I feel comfortable when carrying that if perchance my weapon is flashed or printed, I won't be reprimanded. Of course, carrying around my property is a different story. If too much attention is given to open carry, our incompetent lawmakers (Malloy, Blumenthal and Murphy) will surely attack this 'right' also. I have seen the up and coming bills which make the existing laws pale in contrast. Lets not add this to the mix.

    You don't have the right to open carry if you're to afraid to exercise it.

    But you did see a reason to resurrect a thread that had been dead for over 1 year.
