While I think open carry should be a given, they would be better off implementing a no license concealed carry, such as Arizona, Vermont(of all states)and Alaska have. I believe those are the three states the do not require a permit to carry concealed. All 50 states should NOT require a permit to carry concealed or openly.
I agree with you, concealed (or open) carry should be encouraged by the law instead of being allowed.
Still when I lived in Georgia, it was so easy (and cheap) to get a license that I could live with it quite happily.
They basically have to issue you a license unless you are a serial killer or something like that. The law needed a few kinks worked out and I have read that they indeed have corrected most of those minor points.

Amen. Our 2d Amendment rights should not be infringed upon by any state.
Plus, it should not require legal research to travel from one state to another with a weapon.
