"Arkansas is not a traditional open carry state. They issue a concealed carry permit, so it is our understanding at this time that open carry is not allowed even with a permit."

We'll find out as soon as someone gets prosecuted for it. The law says it's only illegal with criminal intent, so I'm guessing we soon will be. The new governor will certainly sign legislation that makes it so in early 2015. BTW, the permits are for reciprocity in other states. Vermont issues them as well, even though within their borders they are constitutional carry.

Although I am for open carry I feel that it is insane to open carry in any of the states that allow it. I say this because the cops and most of the people in these open carry states are ignorant or not aware that there is a law that allows people to open carry. It just seems like a good way to get a cap busted in your ass because of someone elseís ignorance of the law.

As for me I will still carry concealed until the United States gets its shit together and educates the people and police.

Also, Oklahoma has recently allowed open carry but I have yet to see anyone use the privilege and I spend most of my day in Oklahoma. Smart people!

I'll add one more thing to what you said. I don't want people to know that I'm carrying. If they know they may cap me just because they can see my gun. I like that good ol element of surprise. When they know it will be to late for them.

that is not a god given right ( if it was it would be in the bible. it is a right that was given to us by our country's founders. If we want to fight for our rights we have to reframe from comments like god given right that make us sound uninformed when people see that you have your facts straight they pay attention but if they see you blurtting out stupid crap they laugh and don't respect you view. Most of the time the messager is as important
as the message. That is why the republicans are having such a hard time so many of the people we have to speak for us are uniformed tp a point that they look and make the rest of us look stupid.

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one. Luke 22:36
Remember that a sword was the pinnacle of military technology at the time. Self defense is a God given right.

Read it where Jesus told His decouples to sell a cloak and buy a sword. If you would take the time to read God 's Word you would know these things. I am glad you asked, that shows your interest.

It is in the bible, as the above posters pointed out, but the bill of rights are referred to as natural rights. That means that they are basic rights granted by humanity itself rather than granted by a government. In actuality, the intent of the framers was that the government didn't grant the people anything, but rather the people gave some power to the government and that was the limit of their power, barring an amendment to the Constitution.

And I will raise by saying this; it would be really hard to try and protect my family from all the different types of bad-guys we have out there if I chose to open carrying and got shot the day before by a confused cop or citizen who didnít know the laws.
For now, Iíll just keep my protection out of site.

I'm with you, though I see the advantage to open carry as not having to go through the expense of a CCW license. Possibly also for people in certain jobs.

As far as legal matters in America go, the bible isn't the proof that courts look for.

I would encourage you to read the Declaration of Independence, and pay close attention to the clause that says "all men are created equal and endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights". Our founding fathers recognized that as self-evident truth. I guess you flunked 7th grade civics class.

Then you should google District of Columbia vs Heller and read the Supreme Court decision that confirms the 2nd Amendment is an individual right.

So, like I said, I don't need my government's permission to exercise my God given right to keep and bear arms.

Yes, it is. Read the Declaration of Independence.

Bullshit. If you'd read some history, or even the two recent Supreme Court cases (DC v Heller, McDonald v Chicago) you'll find that the 2nd Amendment merely recognizes a right that was already in existence long before the founding of our nation.

Government doesn't grant inalienable rights. It is prohibited by the Constitution from infringing upon them.
If we want to fight for our rights we have to reframe from comments like god given right that make us sound uninformed
I'm merely quoting what the founding fathers wrote in our Declaration of Independence - "endowed by their Creator with certain unalieanble rights".

"Endowed by their Creator" means they come from God.

It's not people like me claiming that rights come from God that sound uninformed. It's people like you who are ignorant of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. history. You sound like an ignorant fool.
when people see that you have your facts straight they pay attention but if they see you blurting out stupid crap they laugh and don't respect you view.
Exactly, which is why you look like a damn fool. You're ignorant of the topic at hand. You have internet access. Read the damn Declaration of Independence. Read the damn Supreme Court cases. Stop blithering like a damn fool and embarrassing yourself.
so many of the people we have to speak for us are uniformed tp a point that they look and make the rest of us look stupid.
You don't need anyone to help you look stupid. You're doing a fine job of that all by yourself.

Do your homework dumbass.

Agreed on the cost of CCW license, I think that money should be spent on taking some advanced self defense classes. The first thing I realized after getting licensed was that, just because I was packing a gun did not mean I knew how to handle all situations.

As of know I have been to three gunfight/self-defense schools and looking to take a knife fighting school.
I truly believe that when you are going to be in a gunfight a knife might save your life. In other words bring a gun and a knife to a gunfight.
