I saw some stuff from the state of Michigan recently, which brings up the question: What defines OC? A marine is OCing, but has a CCW, which in Michigan requires the weapon to concealed at all time. One is open to arrest if it is not.
Totally completely WRONG SIR! First of all in Michigan there is no law on the books that prohibits OC. Do you know what the absence of a law that prohibits means? It means that if there is no law against it..... nothing that says it is illegal... then it is legal to do it.
In Michigan a permit to carry concealed is necessary because there are laws against carrying concealed... unless a person has the permit.
But having the permit to carry concealed only means a person MAY (is allowed to) carry concealed... it does NOT require concealed carry.
No law ='s legal by default... law prohibiting ='s a permit/license required to allow an otherwise illegal action.
There are so many different standard in this country that used be free. Right turn on red?
Yes.. each State has their own unique set of laws for many things. It is the way it is. But do not assume that the laws in my State, or any other State, are the same as the laws in your State.
OC is supposed to be legal through out the country, but so is LOC. According to the constipation.
And this simple statement by you tells me you are just another elitist leftist that doesn't like the Constitution... and all that it implies... the people's control of the government not the governments control of the people.
You are aware that the Bill of Rights is NOT a list of things the government allows the people to do... but is a list of things the people have told the government they will NOT allow the government to do? Once you understand that concept you will understand that the lack of a law that prohibits an activity means that activity is... by default... legal to do... hence no law against Carrying a loaded pistol in plain sight in Michigan... means it is legal to openly carry a loaded pistol in Michigan..... regardless of your misunderstanding of the law/lack of a law in a State other than your own.
But, what happens? People (non felons) are continuously harassed by local LEOs in all states on a continuing basis.
Get a life, LEOs - must everyone else can actually protect themselves, and you are not legally required to do so, else you all would have sued silly long ago.
Face it: You are a necessary component of civilized society, but your skill set is limited to that of the common man, who can (and must) protect himself without your mostly tardy assistance upon even tardier arrival.
By the way... I've been reading your posts throughout this forum and they all have an undertone of anti OC.
I personally am encouraged by the influx of new members spouting anti OC misinformation, opinions, and false data because it means the OC movement of quietly living up for the rights of the common people in the CONSTITUTION AND BILL OF RIGHTS is working.
