Open Carry w/ Rick Scott

If Rick Scott wins do you think he will legalize open carry?
If so, how long before he does so?
Thanks
-Jason

Open carry in Sunshine State

I also agree it'll never happen here. When the original CC legislation was passed it provided for open carry along with revised shall issue provisions. It was quickly, I mean quickly revised to disallow open carry. Things were a lot different back then, I truely don't see it happening. Do wish it would though. Ct.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Hooray civics: governor can't legalize anything. He can certainly pressure the legislature into doing something, but I don't imagine any governor would take on OC as a pet issue. That being said, if the legislature actually passed a bill legalizing it, I doubt Scott would veto it. Fingers crossed here too. ; )

I dont know if open carry is as good as concealed.

with open everyone knows you are carrying.
When you stand in line at a restaurant or convenience store you will have people behind you who can see your gun and can make a grab for it.

I think it is better to keep it hidden, especially from a tactical sense.

My kids live in Arizona, get to visit often. Open carry took a little getting used to seeing at first. Mostly older men and bikers. Flew out in mid October pre scanner, TSA was awful then, can't imagine what it's like now! Ct

I agree with MattBatson on this topic. We don't need to create targets for criminals.

What would be Scott's motivation to push for open carry?
