Florida Vying to Become 46th State to Allow Open Carry

There are only 5 states that prohibit open carry all together. Although "open carry" is legal in Tennessee IF YOU HAVE A CARRY PERMIT, doing it will bring angst with local and state police. Most Carry Permit Holders will not carry openly as a result.

Editor’s Note:  But Tennessee continues to kill it in committee year after year.  If you want Open Carry in Tennessee we need an ARMY of Constitutionalists to show up, en mass at every committee meeting on this and other Constitutional Issues.  Not only being there but taking names and notes, and blogging the tar out or it.  Every State Bordering Tennessee, EXCEPT GEORGIA, has open carry.  No one opposing Open Carry in Tennessee has yet to provide ANY SUBSTANTIATION to their FEARS they associate with Open Carry.

With the Texas open carry law set to go into effect January 1, 2016, there are now 45 states with open carry laws, and Florida is vying to be number 46.

The open carry push is separate from but simultaneous with a campus carry push moving through the Florida legislature as well.

Ironically, this is exactly how open carry and campus carry both succeeded in Texas; they moved through in separate bills but during the same legislative session. Texas became the 45th state to pass laws allowing the open carry of handguns in May, and Abbot signed open carry into law on June 13, 2015. He signed campus carry into law that same day, and it takes effect in August 2016.

I can almost hear the tums bottle being cracked open by the cowering lefty momunists. So, when FL becomes #46, will the other 11 states ever pass such legislation? :>}

Seems to be working fine here in Michigan. There is a learning curve for cops to learn that they don’t need to hassle open carriers but they are learning.

I carry openly on my property as it is just way easier.

However, after open carry passes, I will continue to carry concealed whenever I’m out in public—Keep the bad guys guessing.

All of the predictions of gun fights in the streets if we had OC seem to confine themselves to Detroit and Muskegon Heights…which is where they’ve always taken place.

What?

There are seriously 45 states with OPEN carry?

I could hardly believe there are that many with “concealed” carry.

Is this really true? Then why all the talk about CCW?

The heads of the liberal pukes infesting Austin must be exploding.
