Hey everyone Names stefhan and just curious on the rules of OC in and around Newark.. I live near Christiana High School and often head into downtown Newark... Does Newark have laws against OC? Being 22 and covered in tattoos will not help me blend in esp if i have a glock .45 on the hip. Also does having a Mil ID smooth things over or will it be the usual.."Sir put your hands up get down and kiss the ground"
