I have had mine for 3 yrs. I think it is great to be able to choose to have one or not. I am a female an travel a lot. I took my gun with me before I got my licens but feel better now knowing I can take it with out problems. Have to watch the other state laws closely do to them all being different. Money well spent.....

That's what I think you should be able to carry them in the open if more people carried them where you could see them it would make bad guys think twice of doing stupid crap. If you walked into a restaurant planning in robbing it and half the place was packing you would think twice

Guns equal death. Having a firearm in order to secure food is one thing, having a handgun, whether for self defense or for selfish offense, its only purpose is to harm another human being.

Carrying in the open only allows the perpetrators to know who to detain or shoot first. I have my concealed license mainly to carry anywhere in my vehicle without being questioned as to the legalities. Who was it that said "speak softly and carry a big stick"? Not to mention that any educated tactician would advise to not let the enemy what you possess. In my opinion concealed carry is a better option in a public forum. And take this into consideration; as much as I don't like the anti-gun opinions, their voices are getting louder and paid attention to more and more. Open carry only throws it in their face and emboldens the extent of actions they are willing to take. You can say "screw'em" all you want but it is becoming a fight that is getting harder to win. Personally I think all citizens that can legally do so, should carry a weapon and I believe we would soon see crime decrease and politeness increase. My 2 cents.

Says someone who doesn't believe in the 2nd. Amendment right to bear arms. Had someone had a handgun in Colorado, less people might have been killed and a killer stopped. There was an incident in a church where a gunman entered and a person who was carrying a concealed weapon stopped that person from killing more people. Guns don't kill people but people kill people. I guess next you will say lets outlaw cars when someone hits a person and kills them. Shall we go for forks and knives also?

Guns don't mean death ... not every person that is shot dies, even though the world would be a better place with fewer lunatics running around with guns illegally. Sad that I feel the need to arm myself, though it is my right, simply because someone else with no concern for the law is armed.

If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself looking down a nutcase's barrel someday, I'm sure you would rethink your position on arming yourself.

You're an idiot. Guns don't equal death. Criminals with guns may equal death. Do forks equal fat? Can you be that stupid?

you are allowed to open carry, the problem with that is that it makes the average citizen uncomfortable and you will likely be asked to leave an establishment.

I can assure you all that you are much safer setting in a restaurant or shopping mall if I am present. You will never see my firearm unless the situation is eminent. The problem is not those ignorant of how safe guns are in the trained hand, the problem lies with media. The mainstream media only exploits the negative aspects of gun violence not the stories where the trained citizen helps the situation.
