Personal Carry: Open Carry Login/Join

The US 9th District Court of Appeals just overturned a ruling, and stated that the 2nd Amendment covers open carry (though states allowing open carry can restrict concealed carry). This was particular to Hawaii, where carriage is restricted, and will apply to states such as California, as well. This isn't the end of it, but the court ruled that the State of Hawaii violated George Young's rights by not allowing him a permit to open carry.

There's a lot of animosity here regarding open carry. I live in a free state where open carry is common; I see it on the street, in Walmart, grocery stores, everywhere. It's very common to see motorcyclists with a sidearm. There's a lot of concealed carry, too, but open carry isn't really a second thought, here.

There are states, however, like California, where open carry and concealed carry are suppressed in draconian fashion, to the point of quashing the second amendment, and in such cases, forcing the state to accept a form of carry, any form of carry, is more than a minor victory.

More important is the precedent, and the implications in future legal struggles.

I am not an OC guy in urban areas. Rural, fine, but around the masses, nope. I feel you give up any surprise advantage in most circumstances & unless you have the right holster & some open hand skills, you risk the gun being taken from you. If they can't see it they won try to grab at it.

BTW the recent ruling will not get OC allowed in urban areas. Try that I LA, they will arrest you for disturbing the piece if nothing else, just to send a message. It will likely though open up ccw for more people. Consider that Kalif is the largest pop state, 39.5M people & they only issued about 115,000 permits to date. One of the highest crime states too, I wonder why??????
