Packing Heat: PA's Open Carry Gun Law

I know the thread title is misleading, but that is the title that a local new outfit chose. I like that they went into this looking to cause a scene, but didn't get what they wanted in the end.

That Chief needs some education.

It's only a video, no story to clip.

I can't get the whole video to play but the premise of news stories like this is based on people actually noticing someone is open carrying. 99% of the time, nobody even notices. The majority of the time people have noticed me carrying, it was either a cop (never gotten more than a glance from any coo while carrying) or someone who is into guns. Regular people just don't pay much attention to anything outside their little bubble. If it isn't affecting them directly at that moment, they'll never notice.

That's exactly what they were going for, an overreaction. When they couldn't get it, they would move the open carriers around to try to induce a reaction. When they got none, they pulled the plug and went in for the interviews.

No one cared, except one lady who was ignorant of the law, and a cop.

Too funny they had to go out of their way to find anybody who cared.

This video is going to someone fucked. There of course was no clarification that OC without a ltcf is 100% on foot only. They made it sound, so long as the gun is visible it's cool....it's not.

FWIW, there is no open carry law in PA.

The ability to open carry is actually possible thanks to omission in PUFA's language which makes it legal.

The law makes references to licensing requirements for vehicle carry and declarations of emergency, and for Philadelphia. It ends there.*

(Anyone got any citations of PA C.S. to the contrary?)

One quote in particular bothered me, it was stated that you need a "permit" to carry in a purse but not in a holster. That is going to cause problems for somebody.

You are 100% wrong, you can also walk on your hands. Wink
