    well it's kinda funny, actually... What you can technically do isn't always a smart thing to actually do.

    For example, open-carry is legal, but a cop can still arrest you for menacing.

    Yeah, I know. "Legal" doesn't necessarily mean "good idea." I know that the local Black Panthers carried long-barreled weapons during a few demonstrations in Dallas about 15-20 years ago - evidently without incident.

    There was actually an incident here in my hometown where the manager of the shooting range I go to was hassled for openly carrying, IWB with no cover garment. The officer was going to arrest him for inducing a panic?? Fortunately another officer showed up and corrected him. A month later an official letter of apology was sent to him... it made the news :) I'm pro-carry... everywhere.

    i'm pro carry everywhere here too. but unfortunately even with a CCL its still a felony in my state to carry it in churches, parks, schools, meeting places of any governing body of any governmental entity, state capitol, etc.

    Only if you actually are menacing. The whole "they can say you're trying to cause a riot, brandishing ect is bs.

    " [FONT=&quot]§ 5503. Disorderly conduct.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](a) Offense defined.--A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if, with intent to cause public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk thereof, he:[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]1.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]engages in fighting or threatening, or in violent or tumultuous behavior;[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]2.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]makes unreasonable noise;[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]3.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]uses obscene language, or makes an obscene gesture; or[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]4.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act which serves no legitimate purpose [/FONT][FONT=&quot]of the [/FONT][FONT=&quot]actor.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]ADVISORY NOTE: Though this section does not deal with firearms, due to the nature of this code, this law has been cited by officers to suppress or discourage lawful open carry. Since a person who is not licensed per §6109 or exempted by §6106(b) MUST open carry their firearms on foot in order to avoid criminal charge, nor is there any duty for anyone licensed to conceal their handgun, open carry is not disorderly conduct. The open carrying of firearms is not by itself threatening, nor does it cause a hazardous or physically offensive condition. There are also two cases that that specifically state that a person may carry a firearm openly: Commonwealth v. Ortiz and Commonwealth v. Hawkins.
    [/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]§ 2706. Terroristic threats.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](a) Offense defined. A person commits the crime of terroristic threats if the person communicates, either directly or indirectly, a threat to: commit any crime of violence with intent to terrorize another; cause evacuation of a building, place of assembly, or facility of public transportation; or otherwise cause serious public inconvenience, or cause terror or serious public inconvenience with reckless disregard of the risk of causing such terror or inconvenience.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](e) Definition.--As used in this section, the term "communicates" means conveys in person or by written or electronic means, including telephone, electronic mail, Internet, facsimile, telex and similar transmissions.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]ADVISORY NOTE: As with disorderly conduct, this code section has been used to suppress or discourage lawful open carry. “Convey” means to communicate, either orally or by written or electronic means. Because the open carry of firearms is not a communication as defined by this section, it cannot be terroristic threatening.[/FONT]
