I suppose you are correct. I should have said: "In parts of America, one of the below is perfectly legal and you are free to carry it into a Walmart and buy some tuna-fish."
You cannot walk into a Walmart with an AK rifle. In fact, if you buy a firearm inside the store you can't have it. They walk you to the door and then give you the firearm. Speaking from personal experience when I bought a rifle at the Wal-Mart in Aurora, Indiana.
In Mississippi the state constitution grants open carry.
Most references to Mississippi's open carry laws reference open carry of pistols and revolvers and don't mention long guns. I don't think that is meant to preclude open carrying a long guns. It only reflects the fact that concealed carry of an AK was never really an option. Further, concealed carry does require a license.
I should add at this point - I'm not from Mississippi and and I'm not here to hijack this thread with another gun debate. While I do have an opinion on the subject and would be happy to discus it on another forum, my point was that one is legal without license and the other is apparently dangerous to the extent that public hysteria is the only logical reaction.
Scores of kids are dying from football but reading the public newspaper you would think the greatest threat to humanity was, up to this point, perfectly harmless drones.
If you can't relate to my football injuries and deaths reference, pick something else. Here are some facts on ATV. http://healthresearchfunding.org/22...ent-statistics/
How 'bout skiing?
Are model airplanes really what is bringing the world to it's knees? Is it really front page material? Do we really need to apply Eagles to this (non)problem?
