    I found both of those links before giving in and posting a thread and I couldn't find anything, I searched for every key word I could think of. Gun, knife, weapon, firearm, as well as combo searches including words or phrases like carry, or open carry.

    If there is no ordinance specifically stating you can or can’t open carry, than it’s legal per state law.
