I posted this in "Texas" but figured I would put it here to see how it works in other states.
Please forgive my ignorance on the OC subject, but I have been a CHL holder for over a decade now. I have a question regarding "OC" and its actual legal definition (or at least what is being proposed by the bill being drafted).
I understand the arguments that OC is a basic right, that 44 other states allow it, and that CC in the TX heat and humidity is hard on equipment and body.
What I would like to know is how the proposed OC rulas and CC rules will blend so to speak. Say for example if I am wearing jeans and a polo type shirt. If I have my shirt tail untucked and carrying in an OWB holster that CAN be discerned as a handgun by a reasonable person, yet the gun is actually covered....would this onlybe a violation of CC law,...or OC law as well?
Is it possible to write (or have, in the case of states other than TX)legislation that would seamlessly meld the two together? Would it be feasable to enact something along the lines of a "Defensive Handgun Permit" that would allow handgun carry in whatever manner the bearer sees fit?
just bouncin stuff around in my head....feel free to smack it back my way
