You Can Keep, You Can Bear, But Can You Conceal?

“I believe that the most interesting question prompted by Bruen is about open carry, and it may never reach the courts. I think that most people, including most experts, tacitly assume that the Bruen case is about concealed carry. It is not. Neither the Constitution nor the Court speaks specifically about a right to carry a concealed weapon. The right to bear arms does not necessarily include the right to conceal a weapon. So I ask, is there a right to carry concealed? In other words, if a state permits open carry, perhaps with extensive licensing requirements, can it totally prohibit concealed carry? I am confident that the answer is yes, concealed carry can be prohibited.” (07/24/22)
