This map, who ever did it is giving false information with the map. It says Open Carry Required.
So, this information is false, but cause it is not required as one can carry concealed or open out away from cities which as also been discussed many times here.
Behind the power curve, I think not.
Well I'd say at least behind the curve - state preemption contains a number of exceptions not really acceptable. See below.
Further, the map referred to seems quite accurate -
Montana Code 45-8-328 Carrying concealed weapon in prohibited place
(1) A person commits the offense of carrying a concealed weapon in a prohibited place if the person
purposely or knowingly carries a concealed weapon in:
(a) portions of a building used for state or local government offices
and related areas in the building that
have been restricted;
(b) a bank
, credit union, savings and loan institution, or similar institution during the institution's normal
business hours. It is not an offense under this section to carry a concealed weapon while:
(i) using an institution's drive-up window, automatic teller machine, or unstaffed night depository; or
(ii) at or near a branch office of an institution in a mall, grocery store, or other place unless the person is
inside the enclosure used for the institution's financial services or is using the institution's financial services.
(c) a room in which alcoholic beverages are sold, dispensed, and consumed
I believe that parks are also restricted locations also.
If you have a cite that modifies the above, we'd like to see it.
