Can a person legally carry a loaded air gun in public if it is not concealed? If not, can they carry it unloaded?

Carrying an air gun whether it is concealed or not could get you into trouble. You could be in violation of the Criminal Code because police officers cannot determine your intent and can't tell if it is loaded or not. Carrying a weapon of any sort can be perceived as disturbing the public peace.
You may also want to check with the city in which you reside because there are often by laws related to the discharge of air pistols/rifles.
