I'm a student at WMU!
If you're interested in open carry, check out the threads that are stickied at the top of this forum. You can learn all about how to stay out of trouble with the law by getting familiar with where you can and cannot legally OC. This can be found in the OC Information thread here:
Also memorize the "Wash, Rinse, Repeat" thread, found here:
To correct your terminology, CCW is the felony that one would receive for carrying a concealed weapon. The license to carry concealed is a Concealed Pistol License (CPL), which prevents you from getting a CCW charge. Many people here are real sticklers on that, so I thought I'd let you know.
Welcome to the forum! There's a ton of knowledge to be had from the people here - it's truly a great resource. I hope you stick around to learn and discuss OC and other topics with us!
