The Constitution makes no distinction between the two - why try to now? Why does someone discreetly carrying a firearm scare you so much? Many of us carried long before CHL's became available - guess you didn't know that.The right to carry CONCEALED? Never saw that in either the State or the US Constitution! I am only suggesting the background check and training for CONCEALED carry NOT required for open carry.
As for smoking? don't ask don't tell
