  1. I agree with this proposal but feel for everything you create that is more restrictive there should be something equal on the freedom side of carrying. I would propose specific wording to open carry in CT to state ,” Probable cause shall not exist for the purposes of Breach of Peace/Disorderly Conduct for the mere open carrying of a firearm in public.”. this for the purpose of protecting legal carriers from over zealous police officers from stretching the verbiage of BOP or DC to suit their personal purposes.

    • The BoP law already basically says it does not apply to any act which you are licensed or privileged to do.
      If you have a permit, and are following all other laws, you are licensed to open carry.

      • You know that… I know that… I just don’t want to see things stretched to suit law enforcement when granny says she was upset cause when I reached for the cereal on the top shelf she became alarmed when she saw my 40. I know what’s supposed to happen but don’t feel like being a test case. We are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty but that is not reality in the publics eye unfortunately.
