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

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.

All indications are he will.

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. ; )

agreed.. plus conceal carry is more fun :) .. the look on their face when you pull out your piece .. haha classic..

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?

Standby 11-29-2010 11:45 AM

It would be interesting, but I doubt it.

Open carry would be nice, however, I would still conceal mine probably most of the time

Greg Evers crrently as an open carry bill in the works.

I totally agree with you here Matt! I did open carry in AZ, and it was a neat experience, but I knew I had to be aware at all times who might be able to come up behind me and grab for my piece, and keep myself positioned so that no one got the chance.

I think concealed carry makes a lot more sense. I had my CCW when I lived back in California, and look forward to getting one here too.
