And makes a good point for the “blood in the streets” crowd.
Case(s) in point: Vermont has NO LAWS whatsoever regulating the carry of firearms, neither does Alaska. Citizens can open carry in those states without any interference by way of the Government — at all.
When was the last time you heard of multiple street-corner gunfights in either of those two states?
In addition, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Arizona, New Mexico, Kentucky, West Virgina and Virginia already allow the open carry of firearms with neither permit nor licence required to do so.
I don’t know about y’all, but when it comes to running gun battles on street corners, South Dakota and Wyoming aren’t the first places that comes to mind.
Most states already allow some form of open carry. Texas is one of only six states that doesn’t.
