However since living in this great state I have relaxed my ways. I OC everywhere I go there are no laws in this state of places you can not go except court houses. Federal laws says stay away from schools and post offices. Do not carry into court houses, and state buildings as of now do not permit guns it is not against the law, but you can be arrested for trespassing if you do not leave if asked to. Any establishment or business can forbid firearms look on their doors when you enter if a manager asks you to leave cause they do not want firearms in there establishment then you should leave because if not you could be arrested for trespassing. Again I carry openly everywhere, and have never had any problems a few nice conversations but that is it. Have Fun!!!I am a relatively new gun-owner and have been CCing regularly (I obtained my permit prior to even purchasing my gun). I heard about National Gun Control Protest Day today and, while I won't be headed to Concord to partake in any organized demonstration, I was thinking it would be great if even 1 or 2% of the population just exercised their rights at the same time ..open carrying all over the state. That would seemingly be enough for nearly everyone to take notice..not just the clowns in the State House.
I've not open carried yet (primarily because I haven't felt comfortable enough to do so yet), but would like to start. I've realized one of the primary reasons I've been uncomfortable is that I don't truly know where I am restricted and permitted. Are there specific places that I risk arrest simply for carrying? It seems clear that on all private property we are free to carry until/unless the owner has asked us not to. But are there any statutory restrictions beyond that? Can I be carrying in a bank? Town/City offices? When I stop to buy ammo/accessories/etc from the local gun shop (I noticed at one of my local gun shops there is a sign that clearly states "NO LOADED FIREARMS AT ANY TIME" ..is that law, or his rule?)?
