NYTs calls Open Carry of Rifles a "little-known priviledge"

I have come to expect the New York Times to denigrate America's gun culture and the second amendment at every opportunity.      It is interesting that they fail to note that Texas is one of only six states that have banned the open carry of handguns.    This small and shrinking minority of states (Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Mississippi recently changed their laws to recognize the constitutional right of open carry), which consists of California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, South Carolina, and New York, does include the state where the New York Times is located.

There are strong legislative challenges to the bans on open carry in Texas, Florida, and South Carolina.   I would not be surprised if five years from now, only California, Illinois, and New York still have such bans.  Even Illinois carries a bit of uncertainty, as the Supreme Court there has recognized the right to carry outside of the home.

It shows progress that the ultimate paper of liberal fascists felt compelled to cover the gathering of those who wish to restore the second amendment to the consideration given it before the Kansas Supreme Court created the "collective right theory" in 1905.

To call NJ a "licensed open carry state" is like saying that North Korea is a workers paradise. Try to get a carry permit in NJ and you will likely die before any court even hears your appeal.

It is very, very difficult to obtain a NJ permit. However, if you do get one, it is legal to open carry with it.

Contrary to the map, Mississippi does not require any license for open carry.

I believe that you are correct, but I do not control that map.
