I think it's a bad idea. concealed carry gives you time to address the situation, identify how many are involved and gives you the element of surprise. with open carry if your not alert 100 % of the time you could easily be the first target.

I actually think it's kinda funny... does our friend fireman REALLY believe that just because a person CC's that a situation will actually develop more slowly and give him the time to analyze the situation.... ? I wonder if anyone has explained that to the bad guys... "yeah.. fireman in CC'ing, so please move slowly and ensure that he can identify all targets (other than himself) so that he can draw up a plan on how to use the firehose to repel down from the roof and take out all the bad guys with one bullet.."
I think someone has watched one too many TV shows... (bad one's at that...)

There all drinking the koolaid that the person OCing will be shot first. Does that mean all cops or security guards are the first person shot first every time.

Yes, but it's not because we have a gun, it's the uniform. Not all security guards carry guns, but depending on the area, some people always assume that the guard does have a gun, even when he doesn't.

I've walked around town OCing for over 3 years. Not many people notice my pistol when I do that. But walk around town in my security guard uniform? EVERYONE sees me then.

Everyone is entitled to their opinions, even if they're wrong. :wink:

Texas has a proposed bill to change the concealed handgun law reportedly to simply strike out the "concealed" part to effect an open carry law. My only concern with is, will those of us who would still choose to carry concealed now be violating the law by concealing our weapons. Open carry is fine for certain situations and for others I'd rather conceal. I want the option.
Thanks,
Charles.

I would think, if the law doesn't specify, then either would be allowed with a CHL, which would likely be changed to something like PA's LTCF (License To Carry a Handgun).

Ok so the right to carry open in wisconsin is lawful. I think it should be.
But with open carry comes a responsibilty to protect that gun too from abuse and you should not have your hand on the grip walking around looking at everyone. walking like you want someone to draw.
the truth of the matter is it's your right to carry open but if i am a badguy thinking about robbing a 7-11 or any store and I see you in the store walking around with a gun on your hip i will probly not robbed that store unless you could not be a cop cause your 75 years old and you walk with a cane and have glasses and one hand. then I might think if your not looking around if i can get behind you and get your gun and use it to rob the place. so it could happen of course the goodguy could be a marine combat vet and throw me over his hip and shoot me in the head. but the fact that i see the gun gives me the idea to try and take it.
so guard your gun every cop knows he has too, cops get killed ever year with their own gun. look it up.
bank guards and armorcar guards get killed cause it's easyer to kill them right off the bat then take them alive and still armed it has happen. see "armorcar robbery chicago"so be careful of who is around you and control your gun thats what open carry is all about it a right that has responsiblitys too.
so carry and be happy but be careful.
and be nice your drunk hillbelly banjo playing cotton picking firefighter haters. LOL

( Is there a town name that i was just kidding. ) so be nice firemen are people too and what job do you do cause i can find people in your job who don't like milk too. or open carry.
