    Anyone open carry in Milwaukee?

    I live in Milwaukee. I have my CCW and sometimes CC, but have never OCed. I feel like people would freak everywhere.

    Anyone here ever do it in MKE?

    You gotta be kidding. Everybody would freak, including your local LEO. Best to keep it concealed in amongst the libs there in Downtown there, huh?

    well that's obviously my thinking--just seeing if anyone does and what the reaction is.

    I saw someone open carrying in Tosa a few weeks ago, but since it was for the Walker rally, there wasn't any eye rolling. (except from the occupiers surrounding it)

    Thats why I got my pemit. Milwaukee is not a good choice to OC unless you are trying to make a point. The guy in West Allis made that point a couple years ago. I believe he got over $30,000 from West Allis once it was done. Don't know if he ever got his gun back.

    Agreed with GoPackman. Wisconsin people overall are not going to handle it well. The conceal thing is going great! An now you can get your permit very fast. Matter of a couple weeks. Just go with the conceal. If I lived in in Alaska I would open carry my 44 mag or maybe even rural northern WI. We have plenty of bear up there in the woods.

    Before I OC, I think where I'm going to be. Milwaukee is not ready for it they would freak out! I have no problem CC. Milwaukee & Madison to LIBERAL! It would draw way to much attention.

    Might open carry if I had a tree to plant! I could use an extra $30,000.

    I think you guys are looking for the words "unenlightened to gun rights." I happen to be very liberal and I love seeing people open carrying. And I know plenty of right wingers who would flip if they saw a gun anywhere near them. If you are going to talk know what you are saying.

    @SandWMandP, I agree, I know some liberals here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, that carry right along with the rest of the people. On the other hand I have seen die hard conservatives cringe at the sight of someone open carrying.

    I will say this in defense of the OP, Milwaukee PD and Madison PD are way out of control, and have violated the rights of many because of an exposed firearm.

    @OP, CC, and keep it there in Madtown and Milwaukee, a lot less hassle.

    @mel: I'm sure they are bad, I have heard some bad stories out of NH and ME and they are supposed to be super gun friendly. I just hate these automatic labels that get thrown around. Most of the time the problem with the police is a complete lack of training and knowledge of the gun laws in that state.

    I lived in Milwaukee for five years on the East Side. Definatly too liberal to OC. I could see people freaking out if you walked down Brady St. with a Glock on your side. Probably best to keep it concealed.

    there is certainly a pattern that's silly to ignore when it comes to liberals and guns...

    In regards to the quote from Chief Flynn, "WOW! This guy is a nut job! Maybe somebody should give him a physc evaluation and see if HE should be allowed to carry a gun!

    What was just as disturbing are several of the comments in the comment section from the link to the article. I guess there really are a lot of Anti's in the Badger State. Hopefully the responsible gun owners there can eventually show these people that we're the good guys.
