Jim is right. The late Bob Owens, a very respected gun blogger, sometimes referred to open carry and "stupid carry" because that's what it is. You are advertising that you have a gun and now the bad guy knows it too.

You can find many stories about CCW permit holders stopping bad things. You can find just as many stories about open-carriers in open or constitutional carry states who have had their guns stolen at knife-point or by an unarmed group of bad guys, who didn't have a gun before, but they do now. I am unaware of any incidents of a concealed carrier having their gun stolen from an other-than-dead body. Not saying it hasn't happened, just that the stories about it are much harder to find.


On a side-note, has anyone heard about all these people who are up in arms (haha) because you don't need a CCW permit to concealed carry a long gun in Florida?

I like it when things catch fire and explode, which means I do not have your best interests in mind.
