    First gun bill of 2009 has been filed in the GA Senate

    From the latest GCO Update:

    Many of you know that Senator Douglas (R-17) was GCO's Senator of the Year in 2008 and that Senator Douglas is also a proud member of GCO. Senator Douglas got a jump on things and pre-filed the first gun bill of 2009. You may read SB9 by clicking here.

    SB9 will remove the requirement that one placing a revolver in the coat of his winter jacket use a holster or go to jail.

    I believe, after reading the law as it stands now, that's the law in GA now. Senator Douglas is trying to get that silliness repealed......

    In Ohio you have to use a holster if you carry in a Motor Vehicle. Even in a pocket.

    Only to conceal. One may open carry without a holster.

    Webster's Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary, which just happend to be the one closest at hand here by my desk, defines "Brandishing" as 1: to shake or wave (as a weapon) MENACINGLY 2: to exhibit in an ostentatious or AGRESSIVE manner.

    FEW states would consider the mere brief and unintentional exposure of a handgun as brandishing, but then SOME apparently WOULD!

    I MUST admit, however, that this business about open carry requiring the firearm to be holstered is unfamiliar territory for me.

    Yeah, but how do you open carry without a holster?

    You shouldn't have to legislate having a holster..............

    Stick it in your waistband Mexican carry style.

    Are you suggesting that one would have to have it in HAND if there was no holster and that would prove it was being "brandished"?

    I strongly believe EVERY legitimately concealed handgun SHOULD be carried in a decent holster of some sort, but I guess I'm out of my depth here as I've never dealt with state laws REQUIRING a holster for EITHER concealed or open carry.

    I'm not suggesting anything. I was just wondering how someone would safely open carry without using a holster.
