Gun Ownership 101

You may feel at some point you are ready to move into the area of protection for youself, your family and your home. Your thoughts are progressing towards the purchase of firearms.

The great state of Mississippi is an open carry state. This means the only time you need a permit is to conceal(hide)your gun. You must be over the age of 18 to open carry, 21 to conceal carry and be a resident in the state for 12 months.Regardless of the fact if you open or conceal you may not have a weapon in the following places:

1. Courthouse
2. Detention or police facility
3. Polling place
4. Meeting of a government or legislative body
5. Public park
6. Schools
7. Colleges
8. Professional athletic event
9. Place of worship
10. Parade or demonstration
11. Premises posted “carrying of a pistol or revolver is prohibited,”
12. Where prohibited by federal law
13. It is unlawful to carry a firearm in any portion of an establishment licensed to dispense alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises that is primarily devoted to dispensing alcoholic beverages; any portion of an establishment in which beer or light wine is consumed on the premises, that is primarily devoted to such purpose
14. The passenger terminal of any airport, except if the firearm is encased for shipment.

You do not have a wait period to buy a gun. You have to be able to fill out the information on the sales form by yourself and be able to show ID.

So, you can open carry, you don't have to wait to buy a gun so lets jump in and go get one! Just kidding, there is more.....

"Guns made America great." That's not all I have to say, but it's a good start!

Guess the gunman didn't know you can't bring a shotgun into a courthouse. From FoxNews:

LAS VEGAS — DEVELOPING: A deputy U.S. marshal says at least two federal marshals were shot and a gunman was apprehended after gunfire broke out Monday in the lobby of a federal courthouse in Las Vegas, Fox5Vegas.com reported.

Chief Deputy Marshal Roxanna Lea Irwin said she didn't have immediate information about the condition of the marshals. The FBI agent said the gunman has been killed.

Irwin said it appeared a shotgun was used during the confrontation.

All surrounding streets around the downtown courthouse were reportedly blocked off following the shooting.

Um, what statute requires a person to reside in MS for 12 months to open carry??

Sorry about that Mike, I should have put age 21 for concealed carry AND be a resident of the state of Mississippi for 12 months per SEC.45-9-101 2a
