AnomalousThe legal status of open carry is in dispute. Act 746 was intended to clarify the Journey clause, which states that travelers can carry a weapon when leaving their usual areas. Many interpreted this new wording of the law to mean open carry was now accepted as legal. Attorney General Dustin McDaniel stated that his interpretation of Act 746 was that it did not allow open carry. This has yet to be sufficiently clarified. Some local authorities continue to prosecute open carry cases under the pre-existing ban, while officials in other counties will no longer arrest individuals openly carrying without some other cause to do so. However, it is not illegal to openly carry rifles and shotguns.
