Re: “Beebe opposes open carry bill

I have a concealed carry license and I do carry. If open carry were to become law, I would still carry concealed, partly for the reason cited by Rzrbkgrl and partly for other reasons. HOWEVER, I would like to see open carry (by a concealed carry license holder) simply because under the current law your weapon must be concealed from sight to be legal. In hot weather (would like a little of that right now) it is difficult to keep a firearm totally concealed and yet readily available for use in an emergency. Open carry would allow carry in a manner that is generally concealed from view, but would not be illegal if it were inadvertantly revealed by bending, reaching, etc. by the carrier.

As for comments about the gun nut/crazies, I have much less fear of harm from people who have gone through the vetting process to obtain a carry license than I do from the thousands out there who illegally carry without a license. Would we all be safer if there were NO firearms in existance? Probably, in most cases, but that won't ever come to be - those people who don't worry about laws will always be able to obtain guns. They are really very simple to make. It is already against the law to kill people, and that certainly doesn't stop it from happening - neither will making it against the law to carry or own a firearm.
