My state is an 'open carry' one at the State level. We don't get CCW permits, It reads Handgun Carry Permit on the card. I spoke with the powers that be at the Capitol and they told me that all local Firearms laws supercede the State ones. Oh Well. The past few days, I have walked around town, in and out of restraunts, stores etc. With a Handgun on my side. Haven't been seen by a LEO yet but no one else seems to stare at it. I plan on adopting an open carry policy until I am told otherwise.. OH, I did leave it in the Truck on Friday while walking into the Bank. We'll see where this leads. I'm assuming that if I am violating a City ord, I'd just get a "Put it away" from the local Law. It's a pretty rural spot. If I get Shot, You'll know not to cruise through East TN with a sidearm!
