Debatable? Are you serious? It's a simple exercise in ergonomics of bringing a weapon to bear w/o having to dig for it or wear excessive clothing to 'hide' it. Hide it from whom? Do LEO's normally carry concealed? Of course not. LEO's carry for self defense... under the same Constitution as everyone else and for the exact same reason. Many of your post Disney 'Florida citizens' are Yankee transplants from states where the 2A is denied by local tyranny. They bring this culture with 'em. No 'law' allows you to open carry... or carry. Laws don't allow... laws restrict, regulate or deny. Y'see that avitar pix? That's a Winchester .30-30 in hand... with a 1911 holstered on my left side. There's no 'law' allowing me to do that. It's a Right. I don't need permission. Nobody should.
