I guess as a side note, I OCed for several hours in and around the University District without anybody freaking out. No stares, no shocked comments, no frantic 911 calls at all. Honestly, though, I think relatively few people even noticed. I'm beginning to realize that many of my peers are very inattentive in public...
And yes I think many people are very inattentive in public, but I think a lot more notice than we realize.
Case in point, OC'd for the second time in Last Word Books the other day, was wearing my revolver. While I was ringing up was chatting with the guy behind the counter and he mentioned he had seen me OCing a few days earlier.
Now this person was not freaking out, in fact was happily taking my debit card for a purchase, nor had freaked out before. I wonder how many people see OC and either dredge something up from the corners of their minds that it must be legal, or simply assume a person acting normal carrying a gun must be legal because, well they are acting normal and nobody would do something as crazy as carry a gun while acting normal unless it was legal. People see things out of the ordinary and try to fit them within certain defined parameters. Therefore OC is legal, guy must be a cop/security guard/whatever, guy must have a special permit for this, or OMG, guy has a gun, must call cops, oh no he has cookies too! RUN!!!:what:
Fortunately very few seem to fall into the last category.
Haven't been to the U District in about a year, should stop by there sometime again...
