Here in RI your right to have a concealed weapon is strictly
controlled by the Attorney General's office. And our current AG
Patrick Lynch while in support of gay marriage, is a stickler when it
comes to not issuing carry permits.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: What if it is an _unconcealed_ weapon?
Suppose you simply walked down the street with a gun strapped on your
belt, like an oldtime cowboy? You are not attempting to hide
anything. PAT]
