I got into a discussion with some friends a while back and we had a difference of opinion on the legality of carrying firearms visibly (not concealed) on your person and/or in vehicle without a concealed carry permit.
I told them I had always been taught as long as it wasn't concealed you have the right to carry a firearm in any state as long as you are 18 for long gun and 21 for pistol. Even loaded. They disagreed.
Of course, not in buildings forbidding (school, banks, etc) such, not if you are a felon or fugitive, etc...
They said they didn't think it was legal in all states to carry a pistol or long gun in a vehicle, even if it was visible or visible on your person in or out of vehicle.
I thought the 2nd amendment still guaranteed us the right to carry in ANY state???? Am I wrong?
Good grief, when I was in high school you could always find a few pickups out in the parking lot with gun racks in the back window with a rifle or two in them..... If it was warm weather the windows would be down too!!!
