Open carry is a right that has been infringed. I'll still Discreetly Carry, even if it is passed, strictly to ensure a strategic advantage.

I always carry two firearms. If the bill passes after it's rewritten I'll still carry two...one open and one concealed. I'm 100% for it!

I can't see many advantages to open carry but believe that there are distinct tactical DISadvantages to letting any potential threat know that I am armed. I am very much in favor of being able to do it even though I wouldn't!

I think that it is a shame that we have to "hope" that some politicians will "allow" us to do something that should already be our right.

Jeff I agree there could be some disadvantages, but there are advantages too i belive that at least make it a good option. Most potential threats are going to be career criminals and as such are going to be oportunistic and will most likely pass you by in search of easier prey. If you run into someone who is just a stone cold killer or sociopath of some sort it would be a disadventage, but those things happen most of the time when you are blindsided or aren't paying enough attention to your surrondings/or have wound up in a place you shouldn't be in the first place. As with anything there will be poeple who choose to and choose not to, I personally feel it would make you less of a target in MOST situations. Just my .02

On your second point I could not agree more it is a disgrace that there is a need to pass legislation to "grant" us a God given right!!!

When I lived in NC it was in a small town and open carried all the time. Same rules applied no carry in govt buildings and no banks although I did forget and carried in the bank once, Luckily the manager was a friend he just looked at me and said forget something. The tellers weren't amused tho. :shock:

I do wish we had open carry. Although i would not open carry very often, if ever, I feel the its very clear that we have that right.

The 2nd does not say "...bear arms as long as they are concealed and you have a State Issued CWP, and you follow the arbitrary rules that we have decided to write to appease the anti's while letting the peasants keep some of their rights to help us get reelected by playing both sides to the middle."

Side note-Everyone agrees that you should not drink and carry, but it is an absolute affront to our rights that I cannot enjoy chicken wings and diet coke while protecting myself just because there is the possibility to order a beer. Hell, there's the possibility that I can shoot heroin in my car while carrying- doesn't mean that I just can't stop myself from driving to the local heroin-mart and picking up a value size sack of dope.

I agree that not being able to carry "where alcohol is served" is seriously flawed. Not being able to keep a gun in my truck on campus disrupts my whole life as for carrying. I think I would still prefer to conceal carry just because it's my nature not to draw attention to myself. On the flipside if we ever get to open carry, I'd have to get that nickel plated Colt SAA I've always wanted. Or a polished judge.
