OC opponents, your opinions are respectfully noted from other threads.
Is that a subtle attempt to say, "stay the *&%$ out of this thread?"
I don't think I recall any actual opponents though; at least not here. Maybe some that don't feel it's a big deal and won't be driving to Austin to march and carry banners and signs, like me, but no one that opposes it. I'd actually like to see it happen if done right, but I think it'll take some time and massaging. We'll see once and if it gets sponsored and introduced.
Unlicensed open carry doesn't have anything to do with concealed carry.
Concealed carry will still be licensed only, therefore as proposed, a person can legally carry open without a license but cannot legally carry concealed. Not sure that will fly and get support or if it'll be modified for now. Allowing open carry for CHL holders makes a logical first step but would require more laws to be changed in regard to concealed carry.
I think that for the most part is the same in most states.
Hell I'm just hoping that the new administration doesn't attempt to legislate away our right to carry AT ALL. I'll hang on to my CHL for now but who knows what'll happen. Apparently there's already work being done to reinstate some sort of AWB that is worse than anything we've ever seen.
