This is a discussion on My New Hampshire Open Carry experience. within the Open Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; You're welcome. PM inbound....
Why is it that when someone has an issue OC'ing on this site that so many say "well conceal carry then"? He has a perfectly legal right as do I in my state to OC. I think the OP should follow suit and have some words with the police chief for violation of his right to carry openly and not be harassed.
How many people do you see OC'ing in an OC state? Why is it an issue? Is it so rarely used that those who do, do stand out? And put unjustified fear in other residents, who should know the Law of the land.
If I go to a nudist resort for business (which I do) and see naked people walking around, I don't call the cops.
And if I did would they show up? Or would they ask if said naked person was brandishing in an aggressive matter towards me or others? And I said No. Shouldn't they say, There is no reason to do anything at this time, everything being done IS lawful, And I should realize where the Heck I am.
The areas I tend to get stopped are around areas that are common for out of staters to visit or use as a stop over heading to the north country. Out of staters who come up from a liberal MA, NJ, NY who don't know the laws see a gun and think "OMG he's going to kill someone" and probably call. I haven't bothered doing an FOIA request to try to acquire any 911/call information.
I've walked into the State House without a problem open carrying.
