    Actually only about six states flatly prohibit open carry. Most of the others have certain restrictions/requirements. The following states allow open carry without any preconditions; Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Alaska, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Virginia, Vermont and South Dakota.
    For all the skinny, check with opencarry.org. Vermont and Alaska also allow concealed carry without any preconditions such as a permit.

    Ohio is an OC state, but if your carrying a loaded gun in a car you better have a CHL. You can walk down the street and its fine, but not in your car basically, thats assuming you have no CHL.

    Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado are open carry states. I'm pretty sure Wyoming and Montana are, as well.

    Certain restrictions apply in each, of course, but they're limited.

    Kansas is generally OC, but some cities and towns have restrictions...

    That is assuming you have a carry permit. Other wise you are out of luck. Indiana does not issue concealed carry permits. They issue carry permits.
