Indeed, similar regimes to the one contemplated by HB 2 currently exist in many states, with concealed carry generally banned but permissible with a permit, and open carry not per se illegal but subject to regulations governing prohibited persons, prohibited places, and prohibited brandishing or other threatening behavior.17

17 See Opencarry.org, http://www.opencarry.org/ (last visited 7/25/2013)(general information on status of firearms laws).

Unfortunately the document also gives credence to the once overturned (as a overreach on the subject of "interstate commerce") prohibition on carry in school zones:

...For example, federal law provides that “t shall be unlawful for any individual knowingly topossess a firearm...at a place that the individual knows, or has reasonable cause to believe, is a

school zone.” 18 U.S.C. § 922(q)(2)(A); See 18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(25) for the definition of a“school zone"...

Why the attorneys felt it necessary to mention the law is beyond me.

Good to see the support from NRA. Our local and National have been a no show on NVs open carry issues.
