With Mike saying the following...
"Folks - as many have asked, John and I have formally updated our main page to clarify the focus of OpenCarry.org: "A pro-gun Internet community focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life."
Long gun carry is a great topic for some folks to look into but distracts from our organizational focus here - generally in the law of carry rght now we have major restrictions on the right to open or conceal carry handguns in many states - and generally the law of long gun carry is much less restrictive - and for long guns the issue is mainly just "carry" generally, as concealed carry of long guns is not practical or in some cases possible anyway.
Please note - NEW RULE - #11:
11) This web site is focused on the right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life. Do not start OFF TOPIC threads or discussions such aspromoting the carry of long guns. Long guns are great! OCDO co-founders John & Mike and most of the folks on this forum own at least one long gun - but due to urban area issues of muzzle control, lack of trigger guard coverage, and the fact that the long gun carry issue distracts from our main mission to promote the open carry of handguns in daily life, we will leave long gun carry activism in the capable hands of the future founders of web sites about long gun carry."
There are a few questions I'd like to get some clarification on.
1) What about those of us that have long arms that technically, in the state of Michigan anyway, are considered and REGISTERED as a pistol; can we still discuss those?
2) Are those types of "pistols" going to be prohibited at OC meets, even if it is not an official MOC event?
3) If they are prohibited at events, what about if they are in a holster made for "said pistol"?
These questions are not ment to start trouble, or point fingers. Just something that in my opinion needs some clarification going forward.
