Fundraiser to Support Delaware Open Carry!

We've come to that time of the year when our server lease and domain name registrations are coming up for renewal. In the past, many of you have expressed your generosity in the form of donations in order to keep the site running - I'm asking for your support again this year.

It means that you can open carry in Dover at your will. The Chief just won't waste his effort to issue a permit for something you can do lawfully anyway.

His office assured me that all of the Dover PD understands that their ordinance is invalid and that prosecution for not having a permit would never hold up in court.

Thank you for clearing that up for me...

I just received a call from the chief's office stating that Dover is no longer issuing permits as the ordinance was unenforceable anyway.

So does this mean you can no longer open carry in dover if you had a permit issued by the chief, or the no open carry in the city limits is not enforceable? Sorry for my confusion..:D
The law was unenforceable because it was not clearly written and seemed to affect open carry... hence the letter. Recently, the bad wording was scrapped and replaced by clearer wording, making open carry the same in Dover as the rest of the state. More info can be found here...
