    Whether one chooses to carry OC or CC, the point is the freedom to do either. Well done Miss!

    Congrats MS. Welcome to the world of OC.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    I dont see how states that dont offer free (No cost) CCP/CWPs get away with not having open carry without a permit. Anything else is infringement IMHO...Oh and CONGRATs by the way.
    Equality does not exist in the real world - it is a fiction to help the self esteem of those people who consistently fail to succeed.

    I support the right to open carry, but fail to see the advantage of it, in an URBAN setting. I would much prefer that the BG not know that I am carrying until/or if I choose to enlighten him.

    Some might say that the presence of one or more persons with "big iron on their hip" could deter a criminal from attempting his crime at that location. Maybe so.

    I prefer the element of surprise, or at least, the prerogative to present my weapon or not. Open carry would tend to "obligate" the carrier to use his weapon, for better or worse, losing the option to "avoid and/or escape."

    Seriously? This thread has nothing to do with OC vs CC. Can't we have one thread that doesn't devolve into a bunch of "CC is way better" rants?

    This is an excellent step forward in MS gun rights that corrected a long-abused misinterpretation of the old law. Part of the benefit of this dragging out is that pretty muh everyone not idling under a rock understands that OC is not legal on MS.

    I came close to calling WTVA because of the way the facts are distorted. HB 2 was not an open carry The Legislature can only make laws regarding concealed carry, not open carry. HB2 defined concealed carry as concealed-hidden from view by removing the clause "in whole or in part":. The effect of the law was that now a person cannot be harassed and should never have been harassed by Law Enforcement officers for doing so because in MS, the people already had the right to carry openly (without permit) according to the MS Constitution (Open carry shall not be called into question). The News Media distorts facts and those hearing that news report think that the law granted a privilege rather than a right already possessed since 1891. This distortion of facts in the news media keeps citizens ignorant of our rights.
