    City's that do/don't allow open carry

    What I am looking for is where you guys find your local ordinances to research laws in different cities that I may want to visit. I have my ccw but to tell the truth I have never experianced an "oc" time. I would really like to give it a whirl. Any Ideas where to find ordinances?

    Some cities like Kirkwood host their own ordinances on their website.

    Do not try to experience OC in Maplewood, MO.

    Most are on Sullivan.

    I just google the city name (along with state so you get the right one) and go to their website, then click on ordinances.

    There was also a list floating around here for a while.

If they say that it is correct and you know it is not, point that out to them, politely. Then, obviously, do not OC there, you will get "Maplewooded."
    LOL... Maplewooded... new word.

    Does it mean to get hauled in on questionable grounds and then embarrass yourself by saying dumb things on camera in jail? (sorry Lancers, it WAS dumb)
    I don't think I will ever be "Maplewooded"... I enjoy all of my rights, including the 5th...

    I wouldn't call the police, because I have done so before and have received personal opinion instead of law. If you are interested in what the law says, call the City Hall for the town in question and ask the city clerk to read the applicable "weapons offenses" section.

    Thats comedy. True and hilarious. I too have called the local PD and got personal opinion, but if you put your fist down verbally and say you want to know what the statutes say verbatim, then they'll usually give you a general area as to where to start your search, vague though it may be.
