There are all sorts of people there, from business owners, to off-duty cops, etc. etc. He was sure if you walked into their lobby at any time during business hours, I would be amazed how many people are armed.
Brian D. wrote:Newarcher, is there really a need to call open carry "dumb"? I spent close to 20 years before licensed concealed carry toting a gun very surreptitiously under the "prudent man affirmative defense" clause of the old ORC law prohibiting same. This has made me a pretty good gun hider, I take some pride in this and have tried to share as much experience on this forum as my typing and linguistic abilities allow.
All that said, we must try to remember that a right not exercised may well be a right lost. On the relatively rare times I open carry there have been a few opportunities to educate folks on the matter, didn't mind taking the time to do just that. And also, there were at least a handful of days this summer that it was just too dang hot for wearing extra layers of clothes to cover up my firearm, so open carry was a wonderful option to have.
"Don't go around looking like a crumb bum* " when toting out in the open and most of the hassles shouldn't occur, or so my experience has been.
