    Do you support an open carry permit?

    I'm just curious how many support an open carry permit vs. no permit open carry. To me having to have a permit for something that is a constitutional right is a huge slap in the face. I think it's just as bad as having no open carry what so ever.

    Then why didn't you include that option in your poll? As written, none of the choices explicitly express that, so I didn't vote.

    I don't believe in having to have a permit to carry period but my opinion doesn't matter to our elected idiots. The constitution does not say, ''the right of the people to bear arms, as long as permitted, shall not be infringed''.

    I don't think there should be a permit for carrying a firearm at all. Do you have to have a permit to speak freely, to exercise your choice of religions, to assemble? Only under very limited circumstances. The idea of having to have a permit to exercise a right under all circumstances is wrong to me.

    I don't believe in permitting a right.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    No permit for carry, open or concealed. It is a RIGHT!

    I voted no because I don't think you should need a permit for open carry.

    The permit is already in place..........the 2nd Amendment
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    No permit open carry. I support if fully, and actively do so in my state.

    Like everyone else as long as you can legally possess a firearm you should be able to carry it without any permit

    Crap. I read it as "I don't think you should HAVE to have a permit"

    You shouldn't need a permit to exercise a right!

    I voted no. No permit to carry. I feel bad for you guys that have to have a permit to open carry. I feel even worse for the one that can't carry at all.

    Why do the people who voted otherwise not comment? In texas we can't open carry. It's been a no no since I think the 1800s I keep wanting to do more research as to why. I've heard it was originally meant for blacks and instead of nullifying it, it was expanded to everyone. I hope I'm not starting a rumor and I'm probably completely wrong just what I read somewere else.
