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
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.
An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life. - Robert A. Heinlein
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''.
For as the lightning comes from the east and flashes to the west, so also will the coming of the son of man be. Mathew 24:27
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.

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.
Good people do not need laws to tell them to act responsibly, while bad people will find a way around laws. Plato
The permit is already in place..........the 2nd Amendment
Helpful hints on pushing back and strengthening the 2A:
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

You should be able to OPEN carry WITHOUT PERMIT!

If you carry a gun, some will call you paranoid. If I carry, what do I have to be paranoid about? -C Smith
An unarmed man can only flee from evil, and evil is not overcome by fleeing from it. -J Cooper
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.
