    Is open carry allowed in NY, I live in rural upstate NY, Wayne County to be exact. I can never seem to find a clear answer if OC is legal or it *has* to be concealed.

    Thanks!!!

    New York State is a "red" banned open carry state. The licenses that allow you to carry off of your property (at least as far as private civilians) is to "have and carry concealed".

    Open carry is illegal in NYS. It is covered under NYS Penal Law article 265 which deals with criminal possesion of weapons.
    Concealed carry is allowed with proper licensing/permits. Upstate may be more likely to issue such a permit. Downstate counties, NYC, long island do not issue CCW permits without extenuating cirmcustances, such as if you were Robert Deniro and wished to have one.
