Keep it Secret, Keep it Safe

Another good read for those of you that carry and I would venture to guess there are a couple of hundred of you on this forum that do, but just don't let it be known.
Anyway as always SAFETY & RESPONSIBILITY is of the utmost importance and that is the reason for these postings.
Please don't make this into something that it isn't

Good article. Until the whole legal mess is straightened out, Kansas, an open carry state has cities with laws prohibiting open carry. Even those of us with a permit are required to keep it secret in those towns. That being said the article makes excellent points. Not much help to others if you absorb the first round because the bad guy wants to take out any problems first.

Well yes... that is why we call it concealed carry.If you carry openly then everyone can see you have a weapon including law abiding folks who have no idea what you might do with it including myself and the bad guy may shoot you first.I do admit to have a CC permit but that is it.Maybe I have it on me maybe not.If you are a bad guy take your chances.If you are a good guy it is none of your business. I do not need the bragging rush.

If you're into bragging about carrying, you shouldn't be allowed to carry. As Rich says, "That's why it's called "Concealed Carry"".

Michigan allows both concealed carry (with the proper license) and open carry (no license required). Where things get really convoluted here is there are some limitations as to where a gun can be carried concealed that do not apply to open carry. For example, you can not carry concealed in a hospital, but there are no restrictions against open carry there, unless the hospital posts rules against it.

Then you have municipalities trying to make laws where and when guns may be carried (in either condition), and said laws are ultimately illegal under the state. An example, a few years ago, Royal Oak tried to initiate a ban against both forms of carry during an "Arts, Beats & Eats" festival. The state stepped in and told the city government they could not do so under state law. Many local parks have tried to do the same thing with similar results.

So if you carry in Michigan, you really need to take time to read the rules!

You are correct Tom and that applies no matter were you are. We work at Disneyworld and it is not allowed to have a weapon carry or open.period.
