    Their property their rules. I'm good with that. I think it was a weasel move to prevent employees from leaving firearms in their car citing the explosives and fireworks exclusion to state law however.

    The Mouse has too much political clout. And not just against open carry on their parks.

    The Mouse and the Florida Retailers Association are the two main villains in this story, besides the DemocRATS scum of course

    Well, actually, I did a few times, unintentionally.

    :oops:

    And I did teach most of the staff at the airport in PKB.

    I prefer to carry concealed.

    I love our Sheriff Ivey. Needless to say I will be voting for him.

    Who is "The Mouse"?

    Open carry has been legal in Michigan forever, however it's only been practiced for about the last 10 years. We've also had shall issue concealed permit for about 20 years. It used to be that if you exposed your gun however inadvertently you could get arrested for brandishing. That was until some OC advocates started OCing. They would get arrested (although it was legal) fight it and win. After awhile the police got used to it and people stopped calling the police when they saw someone with a gun OCing.

    Now you can fill up you car with gas while carrying if you aren't wearing a coat to cover your pistol without the police being called.

    OCing is pretty common in the more rural/northern part of the state. While I CC most of the time, when I'm up north at my cabin I will sometimes run into town and not cover up.

    The benefit to open carry is that it desensitizes the public to seeing guns. The streets didn't run with blood and it's not really a thing here anymore.

    In Florida, I can legally OC walking around my property and going to/from hunting and fishing. That's it.

    I'm not sure what you're actually doubting. Are you saying the Commission didn't take the action that the article claims? Are you saying Sheriff Ivey didn't make the comments attributed to him?

    This has been discussed ad nauseum. Lots of people have explained their positions on open carry. If you don't get it, that's fine, but don't try to tell other gun owners how they should feel.

    I don't care one way or the other, but I doubt it will pass.

    Yeah, but the only place I ever see it is in gun stores and pawn shops.
