My take on the New Haven incident is that if the lawyer was open carrying his pistol, everyone would've seen it, openly displayed a total non-issue, my bet is no one would've even called. In my opinion it was his poor attempt to be sneaking around with his gun i.e. concealed carrier, when he didn’t have to, that led to this whole incident. If the lawyer was in another state that mandated concealed carry, the inadvertent showing of his firearm would've constituted some type of state sanctioned penalty, luckily he was in the Constitution state and broke no laws, that I am aware of .
To each his own, Lead, this is an open carry thread, if you want to go sneaking around with your pistol go right ahead, that’s your choice, but is not state law in any manner, concealed carry along with poor imprinting and occasional flashes to the public that are inadvertent, cause alarm not open carry. Most individuals usually only get spooked, when they catch a glimpse of someone who's concealed carrying, at that point they think they've discovered some kind of illegal activity, like there some vigilante gun spotting detective, and then call the police.
Lead for the record what is the name of the business that denies axcess to legally armed citizen's
