Mississippi Supreme Court Overturns Open Carry Injunction

Posted on: 1:23 pm, August 29, 2013, by , updated on: 01:26pm, August 29, 2013


(Jackson, MS) The Mississippi Supreme Court has ruled a Hinds County Circuit Court judge erred when he granted a motion delaying House Bill 2 from taking effect.

That is the open carry law in Mississippi.

The judge ruled the bill was unconstitutionally vague.

The Supreme Court decided that decision was incorrect.

House Bill 2 would allow people without a permit to carry firearms as long as they are within sight. Concealed weapons still require a permit.
