They wasted no time in going right to the point for open carry laws. The petitioners, Robert Nash and Brandon Koch, specifically point to the division in the appellate court regarding the right to possess firearms outside the home. I'm hopeful that this new Supreme Court will not only take this case, but decide it fully and satisfactorily.

Good read. I think they should have put these restrictions in context. The origins of gun control was racism. Also, by showing ‘special’ needs effectively means the rich and famous, which further leans against the poor. High fees for gun licenses are also economic barriers placed in the way of a Constitutional right against the poor.

The chances are better now for a 2A case to make it to the SCOTUS. The rumor is the case out of Hawaii will be heard regarding open carry outside the home. That would prevent restrictive states like New York and New Jersey from allowing you to open carry outside the home.

I'd be pleasantly surprised if we were granted the right to open carry in NY/NJ - although I would probably never do it.

New York has menacing in the CPL, that is the part of the law that can cause serious problems. A victim/complainant could have you arrested because you placed them in fear by the sight of you with a firearm.
I am not a fan of open carry. I see it in Pennsylvania, some of those people who open carry are not the perfect example by their appearance and attitude.

FYI Kevin Bruen was the Governors Counsel when the SAFE ACT was passed, and defended it (successfully) in Federal Court.'

That being said, I have spoken with him, and he does not come off as a total anti-gunner and admits that the wording of the ACT is horrible.

He won that case, I am surprised an attorney who was part of that case would say that to you. He’s no friend of the 2A. The bottom line is we need a pro 2A case to make it to the SCOTUS. The NYC residents are still stuck carrying an unloaded firearm in a locked box because the petitioners only wanted to go outside the city to target practice.

I have to play devil’s advocate here. What is the attraction of open carry. Aside from protecting you from an accidental display or concealment failure, I do not want anyone to know I’m armed. Specifically, the bad guys.
Are there specific occasions or locations where open carry is desirable? Not including hunting, competition, etc.

I would assume it is a step towards addressing restrictive laws in states such as NY/NJ and a starting point towards standardization of laws across state lines.  One could argue that faced with the prospect of open carry some jurisdictions might become less restrictive towards the issuance CCW permits.

 

I do agree that it could backfire and become a public relations challenge that will ultimately undermine the effort to support the 2A.  I would expect that those individuals who chose open carry will be labeled "gun nuts" and be used to argue that more restrictive gun laws should be enacted.
