Supposedly we have been able to carry in the open for years although you will get a lot of trouble for doing it. Its the "concealed" qualifier that gets you arrested.

now think about that for a minute dave. say you are sitting in mcdonalds with your little angel having a big mac fries and a kiddy meal and some mope walks in with his .38 special strapped to his hip. tell me your attention would not be fixed on exactly what he was doing with a firearm strapped to him especially with your daughter sitting there. i don't think it is that rediculous that law enforcement pays attention to people with firearms. it is also my resposibility to take my happy :***: home everynight to my family so trust me when i say if you have a firearm you have my undevided attention. have to respectfully disagree with you on this one brohter.

Hey Rat, I believe with the new CCW laws in MO, you can now legally carry a loaded handgun/rifle in your vehicle where ever ya want....

I used to have a copy of the statute, I'll have to look for it. Mebbe one of our lawyer types can expound on this. If I remember right, ya had to get past some real legalise to understand it....:bangin:

OK, here's the english explanation of carrying in your vehicle...

Looks like rifles aren't included.

Vehicles
Under the statute the right to carry loaded concealed handguns in one’s home is extended to one’s vehicle. This extended right is confined to persons 21 years old or older who lawfully possesses the firearm. This right only applies to “concealable†firearms (they mean handguns). It does NOT apply to rifles, carbines, or shotguns. It doesn’t have to make sense, it’s just the law.
The term "lawfully possess" means that the individual can legally own a handgun. Some persons have privately acquired handguns in Missouri without going through Missouri's mandatory, but lightly enforced, purchase permit system (see MISSOURI WEAPONS AND SELF-DEFENSE LAW at page 92). While these handguns have been unlawfully purchased this does not mean that they are unlawfully possessed.
The handgun may be carried anywhere in the passenger compartment of the vehicle. As in the home, one must be cautious about access by children. People have been charged with endangering the welfare of children by allowing access to guns, and certain prosecutors may take this as a consolation prize.

Mike i completely understand whacha sayin brotha'... I am at times only seeing things in my point of view... Im sure that if i was out and someone walked in I would fix right on him as well...

Why? For a few reasons, number one, even tho its our right, people walking around with guns on their sholders, hips etc is not happening in mainstream america. So, when it does happen you wander.. is he going to rob me? The store? Whats going on?

I dont blame you or anyone else.. I blame the thieves and crooks of america giving us law abiding citizens a bad rap...

Anywho, Mike... I do appreciate your point of view.... I completely understand :cheers:

I believe it is still lawful to carry an unconcealed firearm in the state of Mo. However some municipalities may have laws that forbid it.:banana:
