I am mixed on open carry of a rilfe. I am sure there are reasons and support people excercising their rights. I realize going to friendlys it could draw unwanted attention. You would be more likely to have someone think you are going to rob the place with a oc rifle than a pistol on your hip.


Also a couple place I think many of us could agree you might need a hi cap rifle is in areas of Philadelpia and Chester. Wilmington is getting that way.

While this debate on OCing a rifle has been amusing to read. However, please keep in mind that Title 7 Section 708 effectively make OCing a rifle in the State of Delaware rather difficult, unless you plan to walk everywhere and not drive.

I believe, correct me if I am wrong, you can have an unloaded rifle on the trunk and the loaded magazines in the glove box for example.

Condition 1 is correct. This is also one more reason why I don't consider EDC of a rifle practical.

Incrementalism. The left has used it against us for years. You are witnessing it right now. A law to prohibit the carrying of firearms in public while intoxicated. Now who would be against not letting drunks carry weapons on the street? It sounds like a no brainer. And the public snaps it up. However, in getting that passed, what comes later? The source of the intoxication! So it is not a huge leap to pass a law forbidding guns in bars. The sheep once again lap it up. After that it is restaurants with liquor licenses. Now I can't get breakfast at Crossroads and many other diners because of their liquor licenses. Supper with the family at Applebee's is now illegal. This very scenario has played out in other states. So what does this have to do with OCing a rifle? Slowly, OC here is gaining in popularity with carriers and in acceptance with the populace and police. But the sheep and sheepdogs are still skittish. Spooking them does not help us. We are nowhere near the level of universal acceptance that we desire. So we carry just our handguns. We blend in with the sheep. WE are good citizens. It is happening, just slowly. OC will be mainstream and the sheep won't realize when it happened. When we OC, we demonstrate exemplary manners. Civility and courtesy are the order of the day. When pressed, the sheep won't have anything bad to say about us. In three years of daily OC, I have watched it occur. Waitresses comment that "the people carrying guns are the best patrons here." People walk right up to me and ask about my pistol. Conversation ensues, myths are displelled, fears are allayed and new friends are made.

Exactly, you can transport it unloaded.
Place unloaded rifle in your trunk
Leave the house.

Arrive at your first destination.

Then exit vehicle, handle the firearm to load.
Return to vehicle, handle the firearm to unload.

Drive to the next stop.

Then exit vehicle, handle the firearm to load.
Return to vehicle, handle the firearm to unload.

# of time the firearm was handled excluding getting dressed in the morning...4 times in just two destinations.

EDC of a Handgun...

Pick up holstered firearm.
Attach to the belt.

Leave the house....
Return to the house at the end of the day.

# of times the firearm was handled (excluding getting dressed in the morning)...Zero.

There is also the subtle psychological aspect of it as well. By creating such laws or restrictions, you begin to impart that "Guns are bad. When and where you may safely possess one must be regulated" deep in the subconscious minds of the people. Begin to associate a harmless glass of water with something negative and eventually the glass of water itself becomes a negative in people's minds.

It's the great hipocracy... "Guns are bad!" they shout from the rooftops, yet 40 to 45% of all homes in the United States contain at least one firearm. Think about that for a minute. That is almost every other house on your street... every other house in your neighborhood... every other house in your town and yet firearm ownership is already treated like it is some sort of deviant pornography.
