Title: Open carrying in car
Post by: elkingrey on August 08, 2014, 10:18:08 pm
Does anybody know what the penalty is for open carrying a loaded firearm while driving, without a CCW?

I like the idea of open carrying.

I don't like the idea of getting a CCW.

I don't like the idea of having to unholster a firearm and unload it every time I hop back into my car.

Thoughts?
