    Another New Guy Here.

    Found a link on Missouri Carry and really enjoyed reading some of the posts here. I am on the Beretta forum, Cast Boolits, and the Pulaski County Web. Totally Pro 2A and interested in open carry.

    The only time I have done it was by accident. Went to Hi-Boy's at Blue Ridge and 40 in the KC area on the way home from visiting my Mom, who lives on the NorthEast side, and had it on under my shirt. Took the shirt off and went back inside. No comments or raised brows.

    Anyway looking forward to participating. Thanks....

    Best to all

    Chalk up one more new guy.
    Just learned about this site last night, but I'm interested in participating in anything that protects our 2A rights.
    However, I live in Florissant and I understand OC is a big no-no here.

    Welcome! Always glad to have one more strong 2A activist!

    BTW: Where do you come by this understanding?

    I understand it's perfectly legal with a CCW.

    http://codes.sullivanpublications.com/codes-slp/

    Florissant Municipal Code

    ARTICLE VII. OFFENSES CONCERNING WEAPONS
    SECTION 210.380: WEAPONS -- CARRYING CONCEALED -- OTHER UNLAWFUL USE
    A. A person commits the offense of unlawful use of weapons if he/she knowingly:

    1. Carries concealed upon or about his/her person a knife, a firearm, a blackjack or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use;

    2. Sets a spring gun;

    3. Discharges or shoots a firearm;

    4. Exhibits, in the presence of one or more persons, any weapon readily capable of lethal use in an angry or threatening manner;

    5. Possesses a firearm or projectile weapon while intoxicated;

    6. Carries a firearm or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use;

    7. Carries a firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, or any other weapon readily capable of lethal use into any school, onto any school bus, or onto the premises of any function or activity sponsored or sanctioned by school officials or the district school board.

    B. Subparagraphs (1), (3), (4), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to or affect any of the following:

    1. All State, County and Municipal Peace Officers who have completed the training required by the Police Officer Standards and Training Commission pursuant to Sections 590.030 to 590.050, RSMo., and possessing the duty and power of arrest for violation of the general criminal laws of the State or for violation of ordinances of Counties or Municipalities of the State, whether such officers are on or off duty, and whether such officers are within or outside of the law enforcement agency's jurisdiction, or any person summoned by such officers to assist in making arrests or preserving the peace while actually engaged in assisting such officer;

    2. Wardens, superintendents and keepers of prisons, penitentiaries, jails and other institutions for the detention of persons accused or convicted of crime;

    3. Members of the Armed Forces or National Guard while performing their official duty;

    4. Those persons vested by Article V, Section 1 of the Constitution of Missouri with the judicial power of the State and those persons vested by Article III of the Constitution of the United States with the judicial power of the United States, the members of the Federal judiciary;

    5. Any person whose bona fide duty is to execute process, civil or criminal;

    6. Any Federal Probation Officer;

    7. Any State Probation or Parole Officer, including supervisors and members of the Board of Probation and Parole;

    8. Any corporate security advisor meeting the definition and fulfilling the requirements of the regulations established by the Board of Police Commissioners under Section 84.340, RSMo.; and

    9. Any coroner, deputy coroner, medical examiner or assistant medical examiner.

    C. Subparagraphs (1), (5), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section do not apply when the actor is transporting such weapons in a non-functioning state or in an unloaded state when ammunition is not readily accessible or when such weapons are not readily accessible. Subparagraph (1) of Subsection (A) of this Section does not apply to any person twenty-one (21) years of age or older transporting a concealable firearm in the passenger compartment of a motor vehicle, so long as such concealable firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed, nor when the actor is also in possession of an exposed firearm or projectile weapon for the lawful pursuit of game, or is in his/her dwelling unit or upon premises over which the actor has possession, authority or control, or is traveling in a continuous journey peaceably through this State. Subparagraph (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section does not apply if the firearm is otherwise lawfully possessed by a person while traversing school premises for the purposes of transporting a student to or from school, or possessed by an adult for the purposes of facilitation of a school-sanctioned firearm-related event.

    D. Subparagraphs (1), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to any person who has a valid concealed carry endorsement issued pursuant to Sections 571.101 to 571.121, RSMo., or a valid permit or endorsement to carry concealed firearms issued by another State or political subdivision of another State.

    E. Subparagraphs (3), (4), (5), (6) and (7) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall not apply to persons who are engaged in a lawful act of defense pursuant to Section 563.031, RSMo.

    F. Nothing in this Section shall make it unlawful for a student to actually participate in school-sanctioned gun safety courses, student military or ROTC courses, or other school-sponsored firearm-related events, provided the student does not carry a firearm or other weapon readily capable of lethal use into any school, onto any school bus, or onto the premises of any other function or activity sponsored or sanctioned by school officials or the district school board.

    G. Any person knowingly aiding or abetting any other person in the violation of Subdivision (9) of Subsection (A) of this Section shall be subject to the same penalty as that prescribed by this Section for violations by other persons.

    Seems O.K. to me. Therefore:

    Per the Muni code for Florissant. It is only legal to OC if you have a CCW. I do and in the past few months I have spent hours and hours Open Carrying in Florissant.

    Florissant OC

    Thanks, guys.
    Maybe I saw an earlier version of that chart (or maybe my eyes were crossed so Florissant appeared to be in the wrong column).

    Anyway, I've had my CC for about 18 months so it looks like I'm legal.

    P.S.
    Maybe the wrong forum to ask, but does anyone know of someone local who makes custom leather holsters?
