Course one thing to keep in mind, once you leave the USofA you leave the 2nd A behind so choose the country you flee to carefully. You can't concealed carry in Canada as in the story that started this, along with a whole host of other nations. What new country are you moving to that allows concealed carry?
    Pakistan and Saudi Arabia are the two I'm looking at currently.

    You say po-TAY-to, I say po-TAH-to. No real difference there. It gets the point across and the job done.

    Outside of Law Enforcement so few people open carry around people who don't know the pistol packer quite well to make the 'polite' phrase more than an empty utterance.

    (but that doesn't mean knowing the pistol packer makes you less leery of them, hell knowing them might make you extremely worried when you see them )

    Tigger- I have 'never leaving the country' in the pool so please keep us updated on your selection and leaving. I'd suggest Saudi Arabia over Pakistan, Pakistan is full of fellas who don't care if you have a potayto or a potahto.

    Regardless of "where" this occurred (even in Calgary) I don't see the question, "Have you been to the stampede?" as innocuous.

    If two aggressive punks asked me the question my suspicions to what their response would be to my answer would be to tell me my ticket was on the bottom of their boot as they kicked me in the head . . . Punks (at least the one's here in Philly) love using a play on words as the "icebreaker" before they proceed with the beatdown.

    "Stampede" is especially appropriate given the typical violent 'footwork" of current youthful strongarm robbers.

    Interesting some would call two boisterious young men in Calgary Canada punks and then compare them to Philly punks.

    Quite a stretch to say the least.

    Now funny Philly was drug into this, I have spent the last 9 years flying in and out of the town at least once a month. It is nothing like Calgary. There are parts of Philly that if your are not of that neighborhood it would be best you don't wander into those areas, but where tourists go in the daylight...

    Comparing Calgary to major American cities is like comparing a never been with his bright and shiny to a combat vet.

    Being asked a question about being to the stampede in a nature park, causes someone to wish that he was armed?
    So basically you set up this thread to beat up on an American police officer, who felt very uncomfortable in a place he was unfamiliar with.

    The poor guy, first he gets asked if he has been to the stampede, and now because of a letter to the editor he wrote, in which he mentioned that, and how he was scared and wished he had a gun

    He decided to make the situation public and if you read the link, he was bashing Canada, so truelly I dont think he is being treated unfairly

    According to Gawker the two guys were just handing out tickets to the rodeo, which is why they were asking him if he'd been there.

    Its human instinct and GOOD SENSE to become very concerned for your welfare and your wifes.
    No, good sense would be to say "No, I haven't been there" or "No, I'm not interested." Or if one is inclined to be a dick, then one could just do exactly what this guy actually did since he didn't have his gun: Make a rude comment and walk away. Pulling out a gun is NOT human instinct and is NOT good sense. I'm amazed that he actually had the audacity to write to the Calgary Herald about this, when this guy is a perfect example of a case where having a gun would have made the situation a lot worse.

    How did that man know they werent setting him up for an attack...He DIDNT...how did he know what their intent was...HE DID NOT KNOW....
    Next time your walking with your wife or girlfriend in an area strange to you...and someone comes up and gets in front of you and blocks your path and asks have you BEEN TO THE HOEDOWN yet....let me know if you dont get nervous...
    Do you pull a gun out every time you get nervous? It's not like his suspicions were justified and the two guys beat the crap out of him. Nothing happened! I'd be a lot more concerned about the wellbeing of those two guys if he had had a gun, than I am about this guy being nervous for ten seconds.

    This guy is a dumbass and deserves all the ridicule he's now getting.

    I really don't see much bashing going on, unless you call desiring to be armed bashing.
