    Always state specific and even municipality specific, but in general you can unless your state or local government prohibits it. Your place of biz is treated about the same way as your home. That said, you need to check your own state's laws.

    I can't imagine any state where it woul be illegal to CC or OC on your own property. But I'm no lawyer, I'm sure California has some obscure law against it.

    As Hopyard said, this is going to be a state specific question. Your best bet will be search your state statutes, you can start here:

    Handgunlaw.us

    I would also guess Kansas has some type of RKBA group where you could check also. Remember, a answer you get from any type of group, you need to get a statute reference for.

    I believe Ohio used to prohibit CC even on your own property. We just passed some more reform last year and I believe this was part of it. OC has always been legal.

    I would guess that states would be more apt to make it illegal to CC then they would OC. Most places that don't have specific laws against OC, do have laws against CC without a permit.

    If it is, I would think it would be very few jurisdictions would prevent CC while in your home. As long as you legaly own the firearm, I think it is safe to believe you can CC inside your own home.

    As far as on property, as others have said, it is hard to tell. Call the local PD (non-emergency number). Not guaranteed accuracy, but they tend to know those things.

    NYC is the only place I've heard of where you need a permit to carry on private property.

    571.030.
    1. A person commits the crime of unlawful use of weapons if he or she knowingly:
    (1) Carries concealed upon or about his or her person a knife, a firearm, a blackjack or any other weapon
    readily capable of lethal use
    (3). Subdivisions (1), (5), (8), and (10) of subsection 1 of this section do not apply when the actor is
    transporting such weapons in a nonfunctioning state or in an unloaded state when ammunition is not readily
    accessible or when such weapons are not readily accessible. Subdivision (1) of subsection 1 of this section
    does not apply to any person twenty-one years of age or older transporting a concealable firearm in the
    passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, so long as such concealable firearm is otherwise lawfully
    possessed, nor when the actor is also in possession of an exposed firearm or projectile weapon for the lawful
    pursuit of game, or is in his or her dwelling unit or upon [business] premises over which the actor has
    possession, authority or control, or is traveling in a continuous journey peaceably through this state.
    Am I reading this correctly? It does seem that concealed carry without a license any place except inside of a vehicle is prohibited in MO. OC is however legal on your own property or business, the way I read.

    Way to many nor's and or's.

    Be careful open carrying. Even if it is legal I have seen articles of how out of control some police can get about it. If you are out in the country, I would not worry about it to much..

    I read that: subsection of 571.030 makes it a crime to carry a concealed firearm amongst other things. Subdivision (3) of subsection 1 states that Subdivisions (1) and more but omitted since they are not here of subsection 1 do not apply when: then goes on to state those conditions of which include or is in his or her dwelling unit or upon [business] premises over which the actor has
    possession, authority or control,
