"Most who carry aren't looking for attention.  I'd rather not be the first asshole shot at when some crackhead knocks-over the local Stop-n-Rob.   Open carry should be legal.  But, personally, no thanks. JB"

Steve replied to Louis S's discussion Tucking In Your Shirt

Regular Joe replied to Louis S's discussion Tucking In Your Shirt

"Does that include the police? If not, this may simply be a case of hoplophobia. Easily treatable by hanging around with responsible gun owners and ignoring media presentations of gun owners as Neanderthals."
