Open Carry in Kentucky
i recently found out i can open carry. i have always known that i "could" do it, but have always heard if i did that cops would hassle me, people would freak out and basically it just wasn't worth the hassle.
but i know a guy that is a ccw instructor and after talking to him a while i got bold enough to carry openly in town. while i always have carried open around the house and at work to some degree. ignorance kept me from doing it in town.
so yesterday i open carried to walmart. walked around for a good half hour looking at various things. no problems of any kind. two old ladies did stare a little though.
while i knew it was legal, i didnt know i could do it and get away with it. i've always heard about people freaking out and calling the cops and the cops hassling me.
i did learn however that i can open carry into a place that has a no ccw sign, since it applies to ccw and not open carry. the kentucky bill of rights guarantees my right to do this and the only thing that can happen is i can be asked to leave. so i expect that im going to open carry a lot now.
