Open Carry

Is Open Carry legal in Minnesota?

Minnesota's Permit to Carry law does not require concealment of a firearm - therefore, the open carry of a handgun or long gun is perfectly legal - as long as a person has a valid Permit to Carry and is not in a prohibited place.

In addition, a person may open carry without a permit under a very limited set of exceptions. See MN Statute 624.714 and our page on firearms case law for more information.
