Perhaps you think it's dangerous in the way carrying a handgrenade with a teflon pin might be risky. But after several years of carrying with a round in the chamber I have no greater fear than I do driving a 2 ton vehicle (admittedly with air bags) 70 mph on the interstate, in fact it's a LOT safer. Guns just don't jump out of holsters and go *bang*. (Research modern handguns and striker block safeties, for example).
Maybe if you're more specific as to how it's more dangerous? The chief danger is carrying in an area where the law enforcement community is reactionary, in my view. Being very non-threatening looking I mostly get kind looks and smiles from staties at gun shows.
