One must obtain a carry permit to either CC or OC - there is no separate OC law.What laws make open carry in public criminal in NJ?
Is open carry a crime in NJ?
I hear much about our restrictive laws but haven't found what makes it a crime here.
I've read the page here on oc.org but I feel something is missing
so OC is a crime because of requiring permits?
(The permit I've seen tales of and paperwork for is labelled as CCW. And they're nonexistent.)
That doesn't seem like enough to prohibit OC.
Permits are a joke IMO. Maybe ok for CC maybe.. but certainly not for OC.
so it seems like abuse by the legislators and legal system to me. I'll have to try to find and read more law on this...

OC is not illegal, but a permission slip/permit is required to do so.
The permit does not restrict one to only concealed carry.
Welcome to OCDO. Your thread is 3 1/2 years dead. Start a new one.
Thanks; it's about the most general topic there is though (and thus is not sensitive to time), and people may benefit from information already posted.
This is a public announcement. Brought to you by the AD council.I think that Nightmare's reply was meant as advice on how to best get the most numerous and the most reliable responses, not as a judgment on your post's appropriatness. Most people will not respond to a long dead thread. I am one of those. It is a sin to disturb the dead. Starting a new thread will not change the availability of the information here on this one and if a person wants to ask a question that has already been answered, it can be answered again. The newer answer may have changed or the new answer may be more accurate than the one from 3 years ago.
