What do you think of open carry here in KY and do you or do you not do it?

I think it is a great deterant to crime, Ive seen many small business owners who carry open and would like to think that the criminals will move on looking for easier prey. I am permitted to carry concealed so I dont carry open very often, but still do on occasion. Would like to see more states follow suit and allow the citizens to open carry.

I love open carry, concealed too, when people carried guns more there weren't as many shootings. Guns weren't as big a deal, just as little boys had pocket knives so did daddies have guns. But fearful overprotection has ruined this formerly historical American social fact. If more people had guns not only would there be fewer shootings, but they would also be less fatal because there would be someone to shoot them already there, no need for police officers to drive like bats out of hell putting innocent drivers at risk also. Not to mention the stories-accurate or not-of people saying the police took their time...

Just seems like it would be an all around tighter security net for us all, we just have to really crack down on background checks and mental/physical evaluations for would-be gun owners to make sure ony those law abiding and able bodies citizens may carry such power and reponsibikity

I have open carried a couple of times, but other than that I carry concealed. The rate of gun crimes committed b y concealed carry permit holders is less than one tenth of one percent. You're much safer around a concealed carry permit holder than a cop. You are far likelier to be shot by a cop, even if mistakenly, than by a concealed carry permit holder.

Remember that shooting in New York a few months ago? Two NYPD officers shooting at an armed killer on a sidewalk, almost at point blank range, managed to still accidently shoot nine innocent bystanders.

I routinely spend time at the firing range. I know how to handle a gun, and I am a damn good shot. I am a medical professional and a wife and mother. And I am a firm believer in the Second Amendment. I will NOT register any of my weapons and I will not permit them to be confiscated.

If I give up my guns will I somehow mysteriously get a real life, hmm this sounds like a scam to get rid of my guns so you can come take from me whatever you want that's mine without fear. If you had a life you would be thankful for the people that own guns legally. Now with that being said, I welcome you to come to my home and try the home invasion craze that has hit so many country's that have confiscated guns of all types. Don't be scared. I'm only going to throw a lamp at you or something. But you as a criminal make sure you bring your illegal firearm. That way you can have your way with my family. Yes my lifeless friend this happens, if you don't believe me look up the crime rates in the country's that have taken guns away from law abiding citizens. It is real.

This argument is old and tired just like you. When my house was robbed I was at work, go figure they were smart enough to wait till I was gone, then they stole my gun to commit even worse crimes. But that's beside the point, I don't care if you have a gun, just shut up about it. You're making a big deal out of nothing no one is taking away your gun. It seems as if you missed that point of my post. You want to rant about your right to own guns while owning guns and its STUPID. I get it, you love guns as much as the criminals, maybe more, yay for you. Own 100, a 1000, make the gun companies richer than their wildest dreams, I couldn't care less but ffs shut up

When I see someone open carrying a firearm in a holster I think they are paranoid.

It's a deterrent, criminals are less apt to commit a crime with a gun in plain view, like a pawn shop owner etc... I see no harm in it if you choose to carry, depending on the state it would be your right as a citizen. Unfortunately that is what this world may come too. If preventing crime means I have to carry my concealed weapon(if i were to carry)on my side in the open to make sure my town stays safe then hey, maybe I will.

It's actually been proven that people who carry guns are more likely to get shot so yeah I'm glad all you gun fanatics are totin pistols :)

"Overall, Branas's study found that people who carried guns were 4.5 times as likely to be shot and 4.2 times as likely to get killed compared with unarmed citizens. When the team looked at shootings in which victims had a chance to defend themselves, their odds of getting shot were even higher."

Brana's study also says that "While it may be the type of people who carry guns are more likely to get shot,..."This puts a big question mark in that study bud..
