Open Carry Court Challenge - Update

Good news for open carry proponents! On Nov. 18th (yeah, I'm way behind on posting)...

"The case was dismissed after the guilty verdict was appealed to the circuit court in White County. Richard Chambless was arrested in August 2015 for illegally carrying in a Bald Knob McDonald's. Police were concerned he had "intent to cause harm." However, after going from guilty to dropped charges, the open-carry debate is open ended once again.
"I'm very happy for Richard and gun owners in Arkansas," said Shane Ethridge, the defense attorney for Chambless." [link]

It looks like it will be challenged in court again, but this case does set a precedence for future court cases. It ain't over yet....


Keep Right On Prepping - K


  1. We have started to open carry anywhere that does not prohibit it. Just so people can see that not everyone with a gun is crazy.
    Take care, be safe, and God bless you all.

  2. Open carry is the way to go IMO. I don't go much in for all the hooplala on CCD's as it is written into the Missouri Constitution as well that concealed is not allowed. Carry it open and let the world know IMO.

    Glad he got the charges dismissed and open carry society is a polite society.

    1. "A polite society" would be nice for a change.
