These folks are usually the ones saying "Don't OC, you'll get all our guns taken away!" They are the "chicken little's" of the gun world, as in "the sky is falling! the sky is falling!" They often overlook what history has shown to be false. Take Michigan for example - since 2008, when Open carry advocates started organizing and having gatherings - the complete opposite has happened. One could say accurately, that gun rights for all LAC's there have been boosted by OCer's not harmed. :thumbup:
I have heard many foolish things said about CC vs OC. The worst in my opinion is that CC gives one some kind of tacti-cool magical powers to engage a violent criminal who is already attacking. This is bunk, plain & simple. As Law Abiding Citizens (LAC's) we are always on the defense. To borrow from autosurgeon, why would one use a offensive tactic in a defensive situation? We cannot engage first, we must wait until after the criminal has made the first move. Why not discourage that first move by OCing & presenting a "hardened target" vs just looking like any joe average citizen, unarmed and easy to prey upon?
I have nothing against CC. I do it daily. It compliments my OC. My CC pistols are there should something go all "$hit hit the fan". My OC pistol(s) are there hopefully to help me avoid such SHTF events.
