I don't care as long as it's open carry!!!
I think you should HAVE to have a permit
I don't support open carry
DAng it. Hit the wrong button. Not enough coffee.
Please subtract one vote from "I think you should HAVE to have a permit" (which, when one hasn't had a full cup yet, looked a lot like "I DON'T think you should HAVE to have a permit")...
And add one vote to "NO".
No permit to OC...ever...anywhere!
Best Regards from Minnesota,
I didn't vote as there didn't seem to be a choice which reflected my view.
Open carry should not be subject to a permit process PERIOD.
Actually, in my opinion concealed carry shouldn't be subject to a permit either but I've been forced by necessity to grudgingly play that game.

No permits for OC or CC!!
However, I do believe that if one chooses to carry a firearm, they should educate themselves and practice the craft... But that's just basic responsibility to me...

Maybe this warrants another thread
It is my hope that after some consideration and research that you realize that registration does give the government undo power over its citizens, needlessly infringing upon our rights without any benefit to society as a whole. If you like I would like to discuss the pros and cons of registration, maybe another thread or PM. We should be able to do that without making it too personal.
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
i wish we could open carry and not get harrassed but there always has to be 1 person to chime up
No matter what anyone says you can never own enough guns!!!
I'm torn- the rebel patriot in me says; "NO permit should be needed."
But, the sensible and wise side of me says; "I don't think everyone should be able to carry." (IMHO; Some people are just to STUPID to be trusted with a firearm.)
However; I fully believe that IF a person can get a "permit" for conceal carry, that person should be able to carry ANYWHERE and ANYWAY they choose!
The constitution didn't say you MUST buy a permit to exercise your Constitutional right to bear arms. Lawyers and politicians have figured out a growing revenue stream and they're sticking to it!
Now, as soon as they figure out how to tax Marijuana and keep the cartels out and public from growing their own . . . . . .
Personally Open Carry does not interest me, I don't feel the need to broadcast I'm armed and prefer the element of surprise against the BG.

I support no permit for either open or concealed carry. Keep the government out of it or it will be impossible to afford or achieve.

The way I look at it is the "Constitution" is the BAR! So in a PERFECT world NO permit should be required. (BUT! We don't live in a perfect world.)
I think if you commit a "crime"; you should do the time!
Speaking of crime & time; If you commit a crime and then you are found safe to re-enter society, you should have your "right" to carry re-instated.
The same holds true for the "Constitutional" Right to Carry, if you do something STUPID and endanger me or my family, OR if you violate my civil rights, YOU should be stripped of your "right" to carry. Otherwise "right to carry" should be "RIGHT" to Carry! (Again; the constitution should be the BAR!)
