    If this is the only code concerning carry of a firearm, then yes OC is legal.

    unlawful use of weapons


    This only applies if you plan on illegal activities.

    When codes like this were written, the concealing of a deadly weapon was perceived as an act of deception (dishonesty)that potentially led to other felonious acts. Theorically, honest people will always carry a weapon openly.

    This is why many states do not require permits for OC while they do regulate CC.

    I'll have to disagree with you. The fact that you have on your person any one of the listed weapons and it is concealed is the offense.

    It doesn't matter, under that code, that you have the purest of motives in carrying concealed. You are still guilty of the unlawful use of weapons.


    You say a list of weapons, i didn't see a list from the first post. But, you did say if

    you had any of the listed weapons andit is concealed......

    Is that from RsMO 571.030.1? It reads the same as the state statute if not.
