    Injunction Granted on Mississippi's New Open Carry Law

    JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) - A state judge has blocked Mississippi's open-carry gun law from taking effect Monday. The temporary injunction will remain in effect until July 8.
    Circuit Judge Winston Kidd ruled the law is vague and an injunction is needed to stop irreparable harm
    LINK - Temporary injunction granted on open carry law - MSNewsNow.com - Jackson, MS

    Mississippi has always been an open carry state, sort of. The old law read that a weapon was in violation if concealed "whole or in part". The general interpretation of that law was that if it was carried on a belt in a holster, the part of the gun covered by a holster was "concealed" therefore making carrying a gun open on a belt illegal. The new law removed and cleared up the wording to some degree and made open carry legal. Now that it goes into effect on 01 July, some agencies and politicians are freaking out and got the above injunction. This is going to be interesting to watch. I'm a little uncomfortable with the open carry just because I know some eggheads that shouldn't be allowed to carry a spork in public will now be carrying guns. We have a very good concealed carry licensing system here. I wish people would just use that.

    We have open carry here. I stood in line at Subway on duty, in uniform next to a guy open carrying. Nobody cared. Except the clerk who wanted to know what kind of gun it was. It's nothing to see people walking around with guns.

    Remember when we had that problem years ago...there was that group that went around open carrying just waiting for citizens to call in and see if the police come in and violate their civil rights? The citizens freaked out...the rookies were responding by low crawling. It was almost numerous. I'd be like, umm I got this, you can disregard, really!

    Yeah we had some of that down south where I was but I never ran into it working nights.

    Everybody here has guns and everybody else knows it. Kinda nice.

    Open Carry. They still pop up from time to time...

    Though I did love the response of one of your supervisors a few months back. I had the radio scanning, and I'm not sure which of the bordering districts it was -- but the caller reported a man walking with a rifle. You're supervisor asked if he was doing anything else -- and cancelled the call since there was no violation of law.

    (Then there was the rookie in my department that was running code to a report of a guy walking with a gun. Not brandishing, not shooting... just walking.)

    When you get the call about the open carry guy, who knows he is not violating the law, and you find him waiting for you with a video camera, its best to move on or become a youtube star.

    I can remember back when I carried a 22 rifle to school to reattach the bolt handle to the bolt body and to fit a new stock. I was 14 then and had the permission of the school shop teacher. I rode the city bus to school that morning, the driver commented that it was a nice old Winchester bolt action, and worth fixing. The shop teacher demonstrated how to use brass or silver-solder and protect heat sensitive areas.

    People trusted each other back then. When the news media reports the armed citizen as a "shooter" and the dead felon attacker as a "victim".... well you know who the "bad guys" really are......

    Thanks, 111. I'd like to sit a moment with just that passage to consider.

    You know, nothing I can add other than everything around us is media now, or soon will be. #ThisWon'tEndWell
