    OC'ing while walking on a sidewalk

    I am new to the OC ways of life and was curious what the laws were regarding walking on public sidewalks, is it legal if you are not within 1000 feet of a school or violating any other laws set forth?

    Welcome to the site!

    You would be correct regarding walking on the sidewalk.

    Where you can't carry...
    -Government Buildings
    -Vehicles
    -State Parks
    -Place which sell alcohol for consumption (bars, restaurants, etc)
    -within 1000 ft. of a 1-12 school on public property (streets & sidewalks)

    You have posted in the Wisconsin sub-forum.

    For state specific information, I suggest that you visit the Oregon section as that is where your profile indicates you live.
