re: #138 wheat-doggha — oo bird outside my window
For all the controversy about CCW, this illustrates an advantage. A concealed gun does not intimidate anyone except perhaps in a healthy way the CCW permitee.
Let just say we have an off duty or out of jurisdiction cop, or a guy that carries cash to deposit and did the whole CCW training program and then more and then more than that. Maybe has to carry a valuable item from one place to a distant one. He gets gas, he eats, he drives across that state, no one bothered at all by that little revolver out of sight.
That’s not a guy that wants to pose. He just wants to pass through on his own business. Posers are dangerous. They get in over their head. Fantasy then awful reality in some incident.
Again we have to see how different this is in town vs way out there in the remote areas of small towns separated by hunting areas. Like Alaska. Ya just can’t lump that in with Seattle. These idiots do exactly that.
