    I think if you have the owners ok it would still be legal. The owner can open carry as could any guest he had on his property. Private property rules differ from public area rules.

    There is nothing they can do if you are on your property. Who cares if someone calls LEO?

    It is not uncommon in my area for someone to call the police on a MWAG while a person is preparing to launch his/ her boat. It has happened to me twice and both times the officer did confront me, and apologized for his need to check me out. I live in a area where many people from the north east vacation between October and April which just happens to be our good fishing months.

    I don't see any "exemptions" in the statute for "having permission" to OC on other's property. Got backup for that statement? If you're going to reccomend something legally questionable, have some law to support it.

    I think the support is right there in the statutes.

    If the owner of the property himself can open carry then why would the law differ for someone invited onto his property? Its like working at a business. If the owner approves of open firearms carry inside his business, such as when I worked at a gun shop, all employees were able to open carry. Most any gun shop in Florida has all employees open carrying a handgun yet they do not own the property.
