Where did that quote come from?
Where did that quote come from?
I'll be honest, ten years ago when I did CC I would not have known what someone was talking about if they said I was printing. I guess I would have had a look of confusion. Honestly these CC only guys Wayyyyyyyyyyy over think carry.

"1) Even if it's not technically legally a problem in FL, the owner of a store who doesn't appreciate it can definitely tell you to leave. They don't need a reason to file trespassing, if they should happen to be a transplanted hippie liberal who hates guns (or a "snow bird").
2) Even if it's not technically illegal in FL, you've blown your element of surprise, and someone can make a grab for your gun. Not a fun situation to be in, no matter what state you're from. It could also result in (in an armed robbery) the bad guy shooting you on sight without reason.
3) Even if it's not technically illegal in FL, it can set up a dangerous mindset of complacency that causes you to get yourself in trouble in some other state, should you travel.
4) Even if it's not technically illegal in FL, what if said hippie liberal makes a scene? Everywhere you go from then on, people know you're carrying. You could make yourself a future target."
Problems with open carry (or printing) (according to CC only scrubs)
1. You might not be able to continue to patronize businesses that don't deserve your business
2. You no longer look like an average, soft, scrub
3. You can't be as careless as the deep concealers (lol) about crossing state lines where laws vary (note: be sure to flip the script here and say that carrying in the manner which allows you to more easily get away with accidental infractions of the law is less "dangerous"(?) and less complacency-inducing - they'll never see the backwards logic!)
4. You might invoke a complete mental breakdown in a hoplophobe, who will mark your forehead with the symbol of a handgun, so that everywhere you go from then on, people will know that you're carrying a handgun.
People really need to let go of the gun shame that's been forced on them, stop trying to force it on others who have already let go of it, get some self confidence, and be able to be proud, of the fact that they've taken their safety on as a personal responsibility, in the face of criticism from an ignorant public.

Righteous government, or the righteous lack thereof, is the product of a righteous society, not the producer of it.
So, why aren't the police up in arms with their Police Union representatives about being made into walking targets by openly carrying firearms?Originally Posted by radelahunt
What makes someone wearing distinctive clothing, driving a distinctively painted car and wearing a flashy bit of metal on their chests whilst openly carrying less of a target than I wearing nondescript clothing, driving an average car and without even any hair on my manly chest while carrying openly?
From having been a member in both, GlockForum ranks right up there with GlockTalk in the numbers of members without sufficient ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain to register on an electroencephalogram.
