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 agree with your opinion, BTW.

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

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

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.

I don't think a person should have to have a permit, period. Here in Montana we can OC without a permit but a permit is needed to CC within the city limits. I hate it. I don't know when I go from exercising a right when I OC to needing to ask permission when I throw on a coat or a long shirt that covers it or anything that hides my pistol from view.
The Second Amendment states: "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The necessity of a permit is infringing on my right to bear arms. When did the Constitution and the Bill of rights become a suggestion?! It's like the Ten Commandments, they're not multiple choice so why then is our Constitution?

I don't think you should need a permit to carry CONCEALED.

Ohio doesn't require a "permit" to open carry and doesn't need to.
