    Open Carry of Rifles?

    Had a question and found this forum. Is there any law that actually forbids the open carry of rifles in Arkansas? The only laws I can find only reference handguns. Rifles aren't even considered a weapon under state law from what I can find.

    LONG GUN CARRY IS OFF-TOPIC: This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. We do NOT promote the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the members of this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry.
