I believe the US Supreme Court will force this ruling to be vacated.

"... does not impair the exercise of the fundamental right to bear arms.”

That is just rubbish.

The court hasn't been supreme without Antonin Scalia.

I don't know if this is the kind of case that SCOTUS will take. I think the battle should be within the state, to get the legislature and the Governor to address this issue. Florida gun owners should put pressure there.

I agree with Lucky#13 here. We folks in Wisconsin had to wait a long long time to get a friendly Governor who would sign into concealed carry even though our legislature passed it twice before. Walker signed it almost immediately after getting elected.

Point is, our state had to OK it - not the SCOTUS - and the same should hold true for open carry - IMHO.

The Reason that Open Carry is Banned in FLA is Tourism. We don't want to scare the Tourists, and loose Mucho State Income. Personally I'm quite content with Concealed Carry "Don't ask, Don't Tell".

But the 2nd does say to keep and BEAR, and rifles are kind of hard to BEAR concealed.

In Ohio we have open carry. Years ago I went in to a Burger King and a guy was open carrying his Glock. I thanked him for open carrying because if armed robbers came in right then he would be the first person they would shoot giving me time to pull my concealed M&P and shoot back. He left, never even ordered his food.

I'd say the right to keep and bear arms is a federal consitutional based right.
The right to keep it concealed or open carry is a state level consideration.

With that thinking, your federal constitutional based right of free speech, what you say and how you say it is a state level consideration?

Be carful what you wish for, GA is a free open carry state to anyone over 21 that isn't a felon. In order to try a get the law changed we has asshats walking around the grocery stores with rifles slung over their shoulders just to prove a point. No it isn't illegal
But it is stupid to take an AR to Kroger to get a loaf of bread.

Free speech at the federal level is guaranteed but it is a limited right.

IIRC the 10th circuit court of appeals a couple of years ago declared CA bearing of arms laws unconstitutional. What they said was that a state may ban either open carry or concealed cary but not both. It is my understanding that the supreme court has not decided on whether to hear this case yet. In CA open carry within city limits is banned by the Mulford Act (signed into law by then Gov. Reagan, yup, he actually signed it) and getting a CCW license is all but impossible unless you live in a rural county. The 10th circuit ruled that these two restrictions in essence formed an effective prohibition of bearing arms in the 2nd amendment.

Here in Mass-hole land open carry is banned except for sporting purposes but contrary to what many believe you can actually get concealed carry permits is Mass. Our real and present problem here is our current attorney general who by executive action banned almost all semi-auto rifles last July.

Badger

Floridian here. Not sure what to think. I support 2A and lawful carry but think concealed is best. I've been trained in weapon retention and practice it (infrequently). How many Floridians have training in anything gun, let alone retention? And how many will practice/train in it? It would not surprise me if legal open carriers became the new sport of thugs, "Yo, U say U wannabe, U gotta step up. C if U can get dat gun off dat dude. We B in the ride wait'n."

Thanks from High Hat
