No Open Carry Yet

by wfgodbold

The bill was killed in committee. Looks like the state police, North Little Rock PD, and sheriff’s association were all against it.

The ‘do not pass’ motion was made by Kim Hammer (R), who according to his campaign website is ostensibly pro-gun.

If I were cynical, I would say that they rescheduled the committee meeting from Tuesday to today so that people wouldn’t be able to show their support; with record-setting snowfall in parts of the state yesterday, making the trip to Little Rock would have been quite a chore.

Tennessee and Mississipi have open carry without any issues; does crossing the Mississippi River magically make people unable to responsibly carry a firearm unless it’s concealed?
