    Question Intro with a couple question

    Hello everyone, My name is Brandon and I was referred here sometime ago by McX. I try to OC as much as possible seeing my work requires us to How ever due to me being of the youning generation and history with some local LEO's I sometimes refrain in certain places. That and the stainless slide on my XD seems to catch everyones eye

    I know the basics on places where you can and CAN NOT OC, Which leads me to my question....

    What is the OC "law" on Private property that you do not own?

    Example: I live in a fairly large apartment complex downtown, Am I breaking the law by OC-ing through out the building or to and from my Apartment to my car? The building I live in has no posted signs or notes that would lead me to believe that it was, Though the looks I receive while doing this does worry me of a DC charge.

    Thanks
    ~B

    i would think it as the same as renting a house you pay money to live there so it is your home and your home just so happens to be on the same property as many other homes if itsnot in your lease that you cannot carry give'r heck and carry on

    You say if its not in my lease.. So if my lease states nothing on the standpoint of "Open carrying" then it's legal?

    Yes I do have a lease, though I do not remember reading anything on firearms. I will reread it shortly and reply with the standings

    Do your research to see what restrictions your landlord can put into your lease. Once you step outside you are probably no longer under the provisions of the lease.

    stay safe.

    I open carry in my apartment building every day. I see the police here 2-3 times a week so i feel there is a need once when the fire alarm went off I counted 3 people with home arrest ankle bracelets on. Just the other day the cops where here cause another tentant beat up his girlfriend. go figure it would be that way at a building that charges 650 to rent a single bedroom with a loft.
