    Question about Florrisant

    I have been wondering, is it legal to OC in Florrisant?

    Depends on whether you accessorize properly. Carrying in chiffon or denim is an open question, too.

    (Sorry, I couldn't help myself. When I saw the thead title, I asked myself, "Now, just what in the h(ell) is a Florrisant?" )

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    You are good to go at last check.
    If you pull it, you use it. If you pull it and you don't use it, you've done some thing wrong and you might not get another chance. Think about it before you pack it!

    Chapter 210 - Offenses, Article VII - Offenses Concerning Weapons,
    SECTION 210.380: WEAPONS -- CARRYING CONCEALED -- OTHER UNLAWFUL USE

    Go there.

    My view is that the city code is vague and provides a path for a LEO to charge you if the LEO is so inclined. I have no evidence that suggests that FPD LEOs are so inclined to hassle or charge OCers. I avoid locations east of the "Big Muddy" unless compelled to transit on my way to/from White Oak.

    6. Carries a firearm or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use;
    Concealed is specifically addressed in paragraph 1.

    My experience is limited to open carry getting out of my vehicle on the street and walking to the front door of my mothers house. Her neighbors have seen this and know who I am. No phone calls or visits from the police.

    Walking down the sidewalk on Lindbergh might be a different answer. I don't know. YMMV.

    There is a subscriber to this site who has had contcat with LEOs there, no problems, he has told me he was witness to the apprehension of felons, no problems from LEOs while was Ocing during that encounter. I and others hace OC'd there without problems.

    Well I live in Florissant MO. Unless my memory serves me incorrectly or some changes have taken effect that I am unaware of. OC in Florissant w/ a CCW is acceptable but, doing so without you may find yourself in a bad situation.

    6. Carries a firearm or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use;
    D. Subparagraphs (1), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to Sections 571.101 to 571.121, RSMo., or a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another State or political subdivision of another State.

    However REMEMBER that you would be in STL county which in general is off limits if you intend to open carry here you need to very carefully research EVERY muni you are going to be in. IN that area the rules change very quickly merely crossing a street!

    Correct. I live in Florissant also, and a CCW permit is required to legally OC.
