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.

Churchill Wisdom; On Guns

Winston Churchill, who appears not infrequently as a part of this blog, was known to carry a firearm on his person.

The above, a 1896 Broomhandle Mauser, was his military issued firearm.

According to British firearms author and historian Richard Law, knowing Churchill had been targeted by Hitler’s agents for assassination, Churchill always went armed, his bodyguards notwithstanding.  He kept a Thompson sub-machine gun, loaded in a rack within easy reach in his official limousine.  Discovering that his chief bodyguard carried a little .32 Webley, Churchill ordered a new Colt Government Model .45 for his him.  A short time later, Churchill asked the chief bodyguard how he liked the new pistol. The man replied that he was still carrying the .32 because the Colt was too heavy.

“Give it to me, then,” snapped Churchill, as he shoved it into his overcoat.   This became the great leader’s personal carry gun until the end of the war.
