    hmmmm something must be going on here

    maybe the criminals who seek out open carriers to disarm and shoot first all had the day off today....
    The good news is...you didnt have to shoot anybody for cutting you off in traffic. We'll call this an all around good day!

    Because there aren't mass attacks going on in the first place.

    Good. She sacrificed her kids for her own political career. May that career now crumble to dust.
    Amen!

    So your theory about OC making you a target for attack doesn't really stand on it's leg then.

    Doesn't matter. Once a Democrat espouses any of their beliefs, they're selling out everyone.

    she made some incorrect statements on her campaign bio, which were seized upon by conservatives.... and then the critics began making assumptions as to why some details were incorrect, with the idea being she divorced her husband and left the marriage to abandon her kids.... it's a bit of a story to describe...

    Im so sick of those that think that people that OC are compensating for something or just wanting attention.

    Their are pros/cons to both OC and CC. Here are the reasons why I OC over CC.

    I carry larger frame and larger caliber guns and with the clothes I wear for most part means they are going to leave an inprint their at that point you might as well OC.

    I find OC for myself more comfortable then CC because my because gets a rash when exposed to lubricant on my guns.

    The draw from OC for me is more comfortable and natural then CC.

    Their is the deterrent of OC. In most cases if a criminal sees carrying a gun they are not going to attack you since they prefer soft targets.

    When I OC I go one with my business and do nothing like " look at me I have a gun" 97% of people that I come across when I OC never realize I have a gun on me.
