I'm surprised someone hasn't blamed OC on Global Warming.
Oh! That's right, It's been cooling for the last decade.
Ok, maybe they claim that OC causes the spread of VD.
Seriously though. It seems like some CCer's think that handguns OC'd standout like neon signs. They don't. BG's don't have X-ray vision that enables them to stand on a persons weak side and see their holstered firearm on the strongside hip. Nor can they see through another person that may be standing between you and them. Not all BG's thoroughly scope a place out before they carry out a crime. A holstered gun that has a slim profile isn't that easy to spot right away. (Look at Lori's picture at the top of this page. If her shirt were black, one might mistake her holstered gun and mag pouchfor an Ipod or cellphone.)
