Welcome Fast Ed. Perhaps you will indicate your hometown and state in your profile, please?
It is my opinion that concealed carry and open carry are incompatible as concealed carry is administered by shall issue States. To conflate (read together to make somehow equivalent) the two except as Alaska and Vermont is misleading because concealment requires a permit (an infringement) and a permit requires training (an infringement) and training is fee based - in the limit selling an exception to an infringed Right.
Now the NRA 'member' will trot out the exceptions that prove the general rule - permitted or mandatory concealed carry is an infringement.
Either we are equal or we are not. Good people ought to be armed where they will, with wits and guns and the truth. NRA *******
