I live in Champaign County, but work in Dayton.
The car thing sucks, but only if you don't have a concealed carry (CC) license. If you have a CC, then you can open carry in your car.
For the last couple of months I've been open carrying whenever I'm out shopping, which is usually on the weekends. I haven't been hassled yet.
Courage, my man, courage. You know those Minutemen in 1775? Did fear stop them? Open carry is a cake walk compared to what they went through. If they had the courage to fight the Redcoats (wich was illegal, BTW), certainly you can muster the courage to openly carry a handgun (which is legal).id love to oc, but im scared of the cops more than anything.
Some quotes to think about:
He who lives in fear will never, in my judgment, be a free man. -- Virgil - "Epistulae" (c. 19 B.C.)
A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares about more than he does his own personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. - John Stuart Mill
