Missouri: Open Carry Under Attack In Rock Hill!

Wednesday, August 24, 2011

Call Your Alderman and Urge Them to Vote NO to The Ban!

An ordinance was introduced at last week’s Rock Hill Board of Aldermen meeting which would ban the open carry of firearms in the city of Rock Hill.  Currently, city municipal code allows those who possess a valid concealed carry permit to also carry their firearm openly.  The proposal introduced last week, if adopted, would amend the existing law and put an end to the practice of openly carrying a firearm for self-defense in Rock Hill.  A vote on the matter is expected to take place at the next meeting on Tuesday, September 6, so it is very important that you contact your Alderman TODAY and urge him or her to oppose this proposed measure.

Concealed carry laws will not be affected by this amendment since, according to Missouri’s preemption laws, cities only have the authority to regulate open carry and not concealed carry.  However, it is still important to call your Alderman and ensure that your voice is heard by urging the Board members to respect your right to carry a firearm openly!  Contact information for the Board of Alderman can be found below.
