    is that legal?

    why would you do that?

    i've always thought it isn't safe to do so because there are a lot of people out there with no self control

    Yes, it's legal with a concealed carry license, so long as you don't carry it into certain restricted places.

    Why? Because I don't trust humanity and I would rather be able to protect my life and the lives of my loved ones than wait 10+ minutes for a blue and white to show up.

    It's because of the people with no self control that I carry. It's not as if someone will be able to make a grab for my pistol, seeing as it's rare that people know when I carry. I'm also naturally cautious of how close people get to me, what they're doing, what their possible intent is, etc. You could call it paranoia, but it's controlled. I just like to be extremely aware of my surroundings.

    Yes, if you get a CCW permit.

    Because the constitution says I can. Also because I have the right to defend myself, if need be.

    ditto with what Impreza said, there are some really nutjobs out there.

    I don't, but we don't have CCW in Ohio. I'm all for it if you can do it legally. What the liberals don't tell you is everywhere that adopted CCW, the crime rate drops. I'm not for it if you like to draw at any sign of trouble. Deploying a weapon is a last resort only.

    i have a permit to legally carry concealed and unless i'm going somewhere like court or out drinking, i normally have a weapon on me.

    Why would i do it? Same reason i wear my seatbelt....sometimes life happens and i like being belted in tight and ready when it does.

    You can carry one in Australia if you got the money to get a Queen's permit.

    I would really like to carry, for the reasons others have stated. But since I live in Canada it ain't going to happen. Stupid Canadian gun laws.

    Wisconsin is one of 6 states that doesn't let citizens get a concealed permit but we are fighting tough for it!!!! :) If McCallum wins govenor again, the bill will be put in place.

    I am getting back into the habit of carrying everywhere other than work, drinking, or in places restricted by law. It feels strange *not* to carry anymore.

    Thankfully in PA you can carry into a courthouse, but must store your weapon at an appropriate facility at the courthouse. If the courthouse you are in does not provide such a facility it is considered the fault of the courthouse, not the citizen.

    I think that the reason why Texas doesn't allow us to carry in court houses is because of the potential for a convict to get loose and make a grab for a gun...I think most courtroom guards now use tazers, mace, and the good ol' extendable batons :bigthumb:

    FL is fairly carry friendly. It's called a Concealed Weapons Permit (CWL) in FL. You can go to the state website and have the application sent to you here: http://licgweb.dos.state.fl.us/license/forms.html

    You want a Concealed Weapon or Firearm application.

    I hope WI does pass the CCW law.. :)

    on another note.. McCallum NEVER was elected GOV. He was given the seat due to Tommy leaving..

    Ohio currently does not permit the lawful carry of concealed weapons, whether on your person or in your car.

    :dunno: Couldn't say, i don't really follow OH politics. You'd need to get reps into office that would support an amendment to the state constitution allowing citizens to carry.

    Write letters to your representatives now and research which candidates would support lawful carry if elected next elections. Don't bitch about the law if you're not trying to fix it. ;)
