  1. I’m from/in AR. There’s still quite a bit of uncertainty as to whether the new law actually allows open carry. Several among our pro-2A groups desperately want it to be so, but the LEO community will have to be dragged kicking and screaming to that interpretation. It may well turn out that we *do* have OC, but I sure don’t want to be that first guy that gets to eat dirt and go to court for it.

  2. Is it CC or OC, as K above suggests?

    My question will always remain why, in a nominally pro-gun state like our PA, the “Best Pro-Gun Legislators in The State,” some of which have no reservations at all about taking other controversial issues in their teeth, have not really gotten behind Constitutional Carry. Correct me if I’m wrong, but CC legislation to date has been introduced by newbies in the General Assembly, co-sponsored by tepid “me too” poseurs, and gone nowhere.

    Of course that is progress, compared to the decades when all those To The Right of Genghis Khan conservatives wouldn’t touch CC with a ten foot pole.

    1. You’re right, I should have been more clear. I had combined CC & OC in my mind and they’re really not the same thing. Sorry for the confusion.
      The way I’m hearing it explained here by our local groups, it’s Const Carry.

      1. Constitutional carry should mean you can carry any damn thing you want to, any way you want to, as long as you don’t use it for a criminal act.
        Robbing, assaulting, or threatening someone without cause, right?

  3. If the law does not specify OC or CC then it is both. Had a permit in TN and their law doesnt specify either. It is encouraged to go CC as not to make yourself the first victim in a dangerous situation.
