    Please share your thoughts, for me neither idea scares me. The people I fear are the criminals that carry gun to s to rob stores and things and don't mind shooting people. Law abiding gun owners-concealed or not concern me not at all.

    Neither.

    What kind of question is this, anyway?
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.

    Trolling.

    Don't fear instrumentalities, but fear the evil man weilding the instrumentality.

    This is why the 'man shoots dog' thread goes on so. The responsibility for evil can be shifted and argued. Is the dog willful and is the man responsible?

    Which do you fear most, thunder or lightning, hate or ignorance, the demos or the elite ad nauseam?

    The conspiracy of ignorance masquerades as common sense.

    It doesn't "scare" me per say, but I would say that CC "concerns" me the most, because then I don't know who's armed. Which is a right (if you have a CHP). however if you don't have a CHP, then you aren't a law abiding citizen, and I would not feel comfortable, if I knew. But how would I know? I wouldn't. See, that's why CC "concerns" me, and OC I'm completely comfortable with. I don't think a "gansta" is going to OC, in a holster. Most likely he'll be CCing in his pants, with his XXXXXL shirt over it.

    +1 Out of your choices I'd say the last one is much more common on this forum!

    I'm tempeted to go after you for stating that CC is a right only if you have a CHP! But I think I'll just go easy and note that it's either a right or it's not...and there's no in-between!

    Guns in wrong hands scare me, those who hardly train are dangerous! regardless to whom or what. I am talking about scumbags, dirt bags out there. When I see my gf touching my weapon that scares me, law abiding citizens with CHP doesnt scare me. You know where I am getting at?

    Improper or dangerous handling of firearms.

    Know-it-all's which I would also refer to glory boys. You know.. the types that think they know everything there is to know about firearms and therefore can ignore proper handling technique and/or impart bogus information to the lesser knowledgeable types, thereby infusing all manner of crap in the minds of people who do not know any better.

    Sarge,

    Please tell me, what is "carny carry"? Never heard of it before!

    Israeli and Mexican carry, hillbilly speed loaders and sideways sights on ghetto Glocks I understand, but this is a new one on me!

    Many thanks,

    TrueBrit.

    not everyone has to be qualified by DCJS standard but if i give my weapon to somebody to shoot I make sure they are qualified and see some ID. Other wise they can get their own gun not mine.

    <sorry sigguy229, I couldn't resist either!>

    What exactly are the DCJS standards for handgun safety?!? Also, just out of pure curiosity, what are good does an ID do you? I mean it's not like you can run the person through NICS!



    If your girlfriend really scares you when she "touches" a handgun, then why don't you teach her the proper way to handle and shoot a handgun???

    This is an off-topic and unnecessary post in an already off-topic and unnecessary thread.
