I probably wont reply to anymore posts on this topic, seeing as how its basically turned into a ******* match. I have been keeping tabs on these forums for quite some time for entertainment, ive read and watched plenty of these videos, ranging from some guy acting like a huge with his cell phone in some cops face. to some guy wanting to tote his ar-15 slung around his back... I think ill just keep my gun under my shirt and avoid some rookie blowing my head of for thinking im kidnapping my son...thanks for the insight and your opinions....i hope you all have peaceful encounters and stay out of harms way...
This is not a contest/match of any type. It is is where different ideas, opinions and experiences are shared. If you are not willing to keep an open mind, then you waste your time and ours.
Extreme behaviors or attitudes demonstrated by a small minority are not representative of the whole any more than one reckless driver is emblematic of all who are licensed.
Most here recognize that nothing is often settled favorably with having a roadside debate whether for a traffic infraction or for having a gun on your person, there is a better time and place.
When a LEA or individual LEO will not follow the laws first we try to educate, inform and seek their cooperation. When all else fails or when the act has been egregious enough, using our legal system is frequently the only means.
Surely, you would not suggest to this forum that capitulating or giving in to illegal demands, refusal by those in power to follow the laws or the like is beneficial to anyone - such perpetuates a broken system.
Most posters will tell you they don't care how you carry (OC or CC) as long as you do it responsibly. We do not attack CCers for their choice.
How much do you fear that if a rookie LEO sees your CCd pistol, he will think you are kidnapping your son and blow your head off? Really! Not only is that a cheap shot, it is garbage.
