I think they just need to ammend the CW law to NOT make it a crime if your gun gets exposed and you have your CW permit. If you have your CW permit you should be allowed to open carry if you want but I doubt most people would. Just to let anyone open carry would be a big mistake, there are a lot of people who can't get a CW permit for a reason and the wrong open carry law could put a gun in their hands if I'm reading it right.

If Im not mistaken the criteria for CCW is the same for owning a gun. So if they cant get a CCW then they legally shouldnt be able to own a gun so making that point is moot.

Also, when is the last time you heard a criminal OC? They dont. Hell thet rarely even own holsters period.

In my experience in a very OC friendly state, OC is nothing more than an added convenience for the few law abiding people that choose to do so. Oh yeah, it also makes it easier to sell a weapon in a FTF deal in a public place like a Wal-Mart parking lot.

If you have a permit you should be able to openly carry. There are certain times and places I would love to be able to carry a short 12 guage on my back like Michael Douglas in Romancing the Stone.

Not quite. The CCW permit requires a more extensive background check. including fingerprints.

I don't think we need a law to allow us to bear arms as we see fit! If a person chooses to carry open view, fine with me...

as for being a target, I hardly doubt that a vigilant person keeping his/her eyes peeled is going to make a good target.

Common thug sees a gun on a hip, he likely wouldn't choose to engage that person as likely as he would a seemingly unarmed person.

I can't believe so many people opine that their opinion should trump my 2A rights.

And I am 100% against the mental health "professionals" determining any american's rights...

The mental health INDUSTRY is 100% quackery! Hell every anti depressant drug has the possible side affect of causing depression and suicidal tendencies.

It's kinda a mixed feeling for me, I think that the thing about your weapon being seen by way of accident actualy being illegal is crap.

I agree that some Bad guys will see an opportunity to aquire a weapon if they think they can overpower the carrier.

The other thing is I would think that police officers would get real tired of seeing people open carrying and HAVING To ask for thier CCW all the time, how would they know who is legal and who is about to rob a store but nobody blinked at the fact they had a gun on thier hip in the open.

Modifying the CCW laws I think is the best option, Personaly I don't want people to know when I'm carrying, but I find it hard to side with any form of gun control , give an inch and they try and take your entire right, freaking Liberals...

all due respect, depends on how you interprut "bear." if you take it to mean "own" or "possess," your right is not effected. if you have your CCW it's not effected. i know you're all for the fundamental right without all the process that's required, but is it really that hard or difficult to go through the steps to get your carry permit?

as much as i'd like to get behind this open carry thing i just can't see more good than bad coming from it. i'm all for concealed carry. wish more people would do it. i carry myself quite often. that's what i consider my 2A right. but there are too many scenarios where a felon/criminal/insane person gets a gun from someone displaying their gun for everyone to see. those who have mentioned amending the current law so if your jacket comes open and someone sees a "concealed firearm" the carrier cannot be arrested - i am in agreement with that.

Due to the fact that I have to shell out a considerable amount of money to get a permit that allows me to exercise my right, I just carry my Buck 110 and hope for the best.

And to boot, I don't wear clothes outside my belt (folks taught me to tuck in and buckle up) so fast access isn't there for me anyway.

And finally, any gun I would consider for personal self defense wouldn't fit in my pocket or easily concealed.

So those of us that choose firearms for self defense are limited in barrel length, caliber or capacity because we are required to "conceal" it?

Me? I would choose no less than a full size 1911 for a semi auto and a .357 with 4-6 inch barrel in a wheel gun. I feel that every american that is not a convicted felon and over 18 should be allowed to carry WITHOUT A PERMIT!!!

If someone chooses to opine regarding proficiency or legal exam or testing, than I will say that ought to also be required before anyone exercises their 1A rights.

I am talking disqualifying factors. I cant think of any way you can legally own a gun yet not legally be able to obtain a CCW in Florida, can you? In other words, can you think of a reason why that a person who can purchase a gun from an FFL NOT be able to legally obtain their CCW?

I dont know exactly how they do your back ground check here in Florida but in Kentucky it was simply a NICS check.
