As the movement to restore Second Amendment rights has swept across the United States, those who push for disarming the public try to portray people attending the NRA meeting, or other events where Second Amendment Activists gather, as hypocrites for not attending the events armed.
Those days are gone.
There are now five states that ban open carry of handguns in most public places. They are California, New York, Illinois, South Carolina, and Florida. There are strong movements to restore open carry in Florida and South Carolina.

Mike - Illinois has not had OC in nearly a century. It is still illegal despite the fact that we have "limited" CC due to the courts.

strong movement to restore in SC?

surely you jest...the bloody state doesn't even have a viable grassroots anything, so unless there is an extremely strong incentive to the legislature to modify their CC profit center, there is no movement ~ unless they are going to do a Texas faux pas...permit to OC you might as well wish for an end to global warming!

Could you please cite the Illinois statute that makes open carry illegal.
Here are some links for your perusal.

http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/illinois.pdf (go to pg. 11).

OC is ONLY allowed when on your own property OR your "fixed" place of business. Any other location will get you a free ride downtown.
