    In Indiana? Yes, as long as you have a permit. Ours does not specify concealed.

    Legal in PA. By which I mean there is no law saying you can't but no law saying you can. Around Philly I've heard it is VERY looked down upon. As is having a knife on your person without needing it for your job. Here in PGH PA you can open carry and have pocket knives lol.

    You only need the permit to conceal. You can open carry without the ccw. But once your shirt manages to get over that gun (or you enter your vehicle) your now conceal carrying, so getting the permit is always a good idea.

Gosh I like living in Kansas.
    They better get in touch with Overland Park.

    Is open carry permitted in your State?

    It is not expressly against the law here in NY. And I have challenged many to show me where and how it is.

    Open carry is allowed in Wisconsin, without permit......I never do, unfortunately.....I don't feel like being put down on all fours, by LE........2 different citizens in my area have been put down at gunpoint, while mowing their lawn, with a sidearm. Apparently, it doesn't matter too much whether it's legal or illegal, you'll get the same result.......since CCW passed in Nov. 2011, things have actually calmed down a bit.........wish I could open carry under certain circumstances, but it's just not worth the hassle......it's like LE is saying, if you're going to carry, we don't want to know about it...but, if you were to get pulled over, and you don't tell them that you are armed, you'll probably get screamed at for NOT telling them.......the stuff that comes out of the backs of bulls....

    But that is all illegal and against the Constitution, so in court, you will win all of those cases. But you do have to know the law and remain calm and consistent through the police encounter. If you can not do these things, you may end up in the situation of those previously described...

    That, sir, is a truly sad state of affairs. And it is a world apart what we have here in Virginia. Restaurants (yes, even those which serve alcohol for consumption on the premises), gas stations, banks, police stations... all are fair game for the open carrier. There are very few places where carry, open or concealed, is restricted in my state and when the local or state police see your sidearm, they pay you very little mind. And this is how it should be.

    It IS a sad state of affairs........I am sure, that in some rural areas, like up north, it's not a big deal, but that's hunting country.......If I would try that here, I would at the least, get someone freaking out, and calling the police...I am sure, that here, if I knew LE or they knew me, it might turnout a bit different, but we have too many Libs and soccer moms freaking out, when the garbage is picked up late. All I can do, is continue waiting for the carnage that was supposed to happen when they passed CCW, and hope that people will eventually come around.

    Of course it is, but unless you have a lot of cash on hand for an attorney, your stuck.....one of the guys mowing his lawn sued, and got $6500....doesn't even pay for the lawyer...they like to keep your firearm too, and make you fight to get it back.

    This is why it is of the utmost importance to record your conversations with LEO's. Also it is very important to simply STAY QUIET and do not answer any questions. They take your gun, it was illegal, a short battle in court will solve that.

    The reason people are stuck in legal battles for years is because they were TALKING during the encounter. The only words that should come out of your mouth are "Am i free to go or am i being detained?"

    I have been doing a lot of reading and have stumbled upon a LOT of conflicting information regard OC in California/Los Angeles...

    I just need a straight forward answer regarding whether I CAN or CAN NOT open carry in my area? With "AB144" being passed and all that?

    Any advice or help or answers will be awesome and greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Short Answer: No, you can no longer open carry. Long answer later.

    It is legal to open carry in NC, but we also have that ridicules Going Armed to the Terror of the Public law that can trump it if they donít like the way you look. Also anytime a big storm comes through and the governor declares a State of Emergency CHP and open carry is flushed down the tube. Although I havenít heard of anyone being prosecuted for it yet, the law is on the books and needs to be changed. Hopefully the upcoming new administration in NC will address that.

    We'll talk about it in the other thread, no sense talking in two different threads about the same issue.

    Has long been legal without a permit in KY. So is having a loaded handgun in your glove box, without permit, as long as it stays there when you leave the vehicle (yeah, right!). Concealed carry has been legal with license somewhere around fourteen years, I think. I've carried concealed since it became legal. Oddly (my adopted state has a lot of odd laws) if you have a concealed carry license and have the weapon off your person in your car, as I understand it it must be in plain sight. Weird.

    I would not carry openly because it attracts too damn much attention---I don't want law-abiding citizens afraid I'm a nut case and shying away, or kids asking to see the weapon, and I'm doubtful how much of a deterrent open carry would be to a bad guy. I'm older than the domestication of cattle and disabled. I'd rather not encourage thugs to count on my being unwilling to shoot them if necessary, or just decide to take my gun.

    Isn't worth the hassle.

    NC has no statute allowing OC, nor none that prohibits OC. Since very few laws are written to give, only take rights or freedoms away, the OC is not "against the law". Guess it's all about the LEO you cross paths with. Barney Fife type would probably try and make it a big deal.

    In an auto and without a CCW permit, the weapon must be in "plain sight", i.e. on seat or dash (and not covered by anything), or stored where the driver or passenger cannot reach it, such as in the trunk. To put it in your glove compartment, door pocket or under the seat you must have a CCW.

    OC'ing is legal in Ohio and has been for some time, they just too their time in getting around to allowing CC. Now that both are available life is good and the current administration just keeps making it better and better. Thank God for good representatives. I only wish the federal legislators were of like mind.

    Florida- You may open carry if you are in a gun store or something related too guns and also camping and private property without a license. Other than that you can carry in your vehicle in a console or glove box in a snap or zip holster without a license.

    With a license still no open carry except for the few things listed above but you do not have to carry in a vehicle like that when you have a license. There is actually a statute in Florida that states you cannot carry to a school unless they are hosting a program or fair on firearms then you may.... Thought that was a little different to hear. But since the shooting in Conn. they have allowed teachers in the Tampa Bay area to obtain there CCW and carry to school if theyw ould like too.
