I live in PA, I was woundering if you can OC at a carnival? JW cause it is carni season lol
I wouldn't want to though.
Probably a good way to get it taken.
OC is a bad idea anywhere (few exclusions, hunting bears is a good reason to OC) especially a crowded place like a carnival. Carry concealed, do yourself and everyone around you a favor
All of these posts are correct as far as Im concerned.
Having grown up in Gibsonton Fla. I know Your not the only walking on the midway
They have seen it all a thousand times and dealt with it in there own way. most
likely a nice officer will escort you off fair grounds .
they are there trying to make a living and entertain a few people .
I would conceal it to keep idiots from trying to take it from you.
Why give up a tactical advantage of surprise?
ie: "Take out the guy with the gun first!"
Call the carnival and ask, call the police department and ask. What is with these questions lately?
Don't be a ***** and ask it straight up, this is the best advice you will get.
If you want to assert your manliness around carnival-goers, I suggest you find another way.
Yes OC at a carnival is legal, but unwise, IMO.
There is a time and a place for most everything. However, I think that OC at a carnival would be very upsetting to the Hoplophobes in attendance. They WILL notify either the police or the carnival committee, who will tell you to leave. The committee will put you on notice that you are not welcome there again with your sidearm. They might even ban you permanently. There goes your fun at that carnival forever.
I speak from personal experience on this subject. I was an exhibitor (with our local environmental group) for 25 years at the Harford Fair in Harford PA. It was, and still is a good old fashioned country fair. In those days I carried because of death threats from the waste disposal industry. I always carried concealed. I notified the security people that I was carrying as a courtesy, and so that if any other people told them that they had spotted my sidearm, they wouldn't have to respond. They even asked on some occasions if I'd be willing to be a back up for them if neccessary. They were good with my carrying.
One year the head of security requested that I OC. I did. The next year, they asked me to keep it concealed. Apparently they had received a LOT of complaints about OC by a civilian.
I still OC on some occasions where it's prudent to do so. Most of the time I CC because it's simply more convienient. YMMV
I would suggest growing a beard or driving a reaallllly loud motorcycle.
