Open Carry Legal In Mississippi.

It’s official. Mississippi is an Open Carry state.

Online pics of persons open-carrying look SO happy!

In an Order issued today by the Mississippi Supreme Court the gun law roller coaster has pulled into the station.

The bottom line was that the MS Supreme Court held that the Circuit Court erred when it ruled House Bill 2 was vague and therefore unconstitutional. The Court also stated it was error when the Circuit Court found a “reasonable person reading the bill could not discern what the law allows and what it prohibits.” The Supreme Court dissolved the Injunction which means that the State Law allowing Open Carry is valid, in place and is the law of the State.

  1. I am an NRA instructor and possess an enhanced carry concealed carry permit…. that said – It scares the crap out of me to think some of these folks I have shot with are now able to legally carry a weapon in this state… I wish they would now legalize Kevlar for the common folks….

    1. Thanks for your comment. Of course the biggest concern is that citizens will carry responsibly.

      I personally don’t think everyone will be open carrying tomorrow or that there will be a shoot out. Well, at least not because of the law anyway.

      MS just joins about 40 other states that allow forms of open carry.
