While that is a benefit... our OC law was copied from Oklahoma. Sen. Estes even said as much on the floor during debate.nightmare69 wrote:I thought the holster requirement was for gun safety and keep someone from carrying gangster style.
Oklahoma has the "shoulder or belt" holster requirement, and the reason that was given from their legislators who authored the bill was that they did not want someone carrying a pistol in their hand at their side and calling it "open carry" and scaring the sheep... because, haven't you heard?... that is becoming a huge problem in the other states where OC is legal and there is no requirement to have it in a holster.
I agree that the best thing to do would be to strike the words "shoulder or belt" every time and just make it so that it says "Must be carried in a holster".
