So, outside of those four reasons, are there reasons why you choose to OC without holding a CWP?
For the record, I have no problem with those who choose to only OC. It just seems like it would make life simpler and give you more options to OC with a CWP. That way you can cover up if you want to. You can go into schools (at least in my state) and you can keep a round chambered if you want and two extra if it's a revolver.
Again, not an attack, I'm just sincerely curious. Thoughts?
Why not have a CC permit also?
Based on most people's comments here, I think the most predominant reason people who OCdecline to get a CC permit is that they objectphilosophically to the ideathat a government would requirea permit to enjoy a natural and protected right.
Another, much less discussed reason, is that some OCers will eschew a permit becausethey wouldn't be eligible for a CWP and would be rejected for same (age, criminal offense, drug/alcohol misuse, etc.). So, OC is the only way for them to carry.
