JACKSON, Mississippi -- A state judge blocked Mississippi's open-carry gun law from taking effect next week, writing in a Friday ruling that the law was vague and that an injunction was needed to prevent irreparable harm.

Hinds County Circuit Judge Winston Kidd scheduled a hearing July 8 to consider more arguments about whether to extend the injunction.

Hinds County District Attorney Robert Shuler Smith requested that the law be blocked, and Kidd granted the temporary injunction during an emergency hearing.

House Bill 2 clarifies that people in Mississippi don't need any kind of state-issued permit to carry a gun that's not concealed.

The bill's main sponsor, Republican Rep. Andy Gipson, of Braxton, said the law simply restates the state constitution's right to bear arms. But some sheriffs and police chiefs worry people could become trigger-happy and hurt civilians or law-enforcement officers.

sure because when you carry a gun on the outside of clothing, instead on covered by clothing, that’s going to turn people into gunslingers.

That’s insane. Pickups with racks holding uncased shotguns and rifles are commonplace in MS as are people shooting at the vertically cut loess along the highways. And they’re worried about somrone with a hawg leg strapped onto their side? What an idiot!

Is he wearing a colorful tie or a Superman shirt, peeking out from underneath that robe?

You should see Alabama’s new open carry law. It’s so convoluted I know can tell if we can open carry or not.

........perhaps you, or anybody else, can inform us about a state where a “wild, wild, west” scenario has ensued following passage of CCW laws..........

.......as far as I have been able to discern in my reading, violent crime has, statistically, an inverse relationship with CCW..............meaning the higher the gun control (D.C., Chicago), the higher the crime vs the LOWER the gun control the lower the violent crime.............

I think the Southern Poverty Law Center is showing its true colors. They are afraid of what freed men will do with guns if they can carry them out in the open. If you could wall in Jackson and test things . . .

Unless you’re active duty military, you are a civilian.

The police are civilian law enforcement.

Racist judge residing in Jackson “Mogadishu” Mississippi. Want to know what his culture can do to America... visit Jackson... but do not go in unarmed and NEVER at night. Our Governor lives in a compound in the middle of a war zone. We will defeat this communist and you can bet on that as fact!

Look up the stats on states that have implemented open carry and you will become enlightened. I carry with a permit. THIS law was enacted because the only state rat elected... hood the AG... said that if any part of a weapon is visible on a CCW carrier that he will prosecute that person for illegal open carry. I despise dims and hood is in the top ten.

“It’s so convoluted I know can tell if we can open carry or not.”
“Did you write it?”

If I wasn’t laughing so hard your comment would have really pissed me off. Let me try again:

It’s so convoluted no one I know can tell if we can open carry or not.

How’s that?

That is correct, just like it has in the other 44 open carry states! /s

Someone posted on Facebook that this only applied to Hinds County. Has anyone else heard this?

I find it interesting that a county judge can issue a warning for the whole state but what do I know? There does not seem to be any common sense in politics anymore and that goes for both parties.
