I plan to write all of Florida's reps, and try to get a dialog going, so I would like to hear from you first, about why you would prefer to carry openly.
2. Open carry is a detterent to crime. It shows criminals who NOT to pick as a target.
3. It lets police know where the guns are on sight. Ask any cop if they would rather see a holstered gun being carried openly by a much-more-than-likely law abiding citizen, or if they would rather find and be surprised by a concealed firearm. Criminals don't carrytheir guns openly in holsters, by the way.
