Here are the key points:

1.  Must have an existing valid CHL or the new LTC to carry openly.

  • If you open carry, it must be in a shoulder or belt holster.
  • If you open carry in a car or boat it must still be carried in a shoulder or belt holster.
  • A person can open carry where ever you can currently conceal carry with the exception of institutions of higher learning.
  • A current CHL will automatically allow open carry.
  • There is no additional training requirements before renewing a CHL and the new card received will display LTC.


2.  If a private property owner wants to restrict open carry, they will have to post the new 30.07 sign.
