If it were as easy to take a gun away from someone as certain people are prone to claim, the response would be: just take it back. After all, apparently it is SO easy to take guns from people. (/irony)
Currently CCW permits require weapons to be concealed. If your weapon is properly concealed, a person will not know you are packing. If they don't know you are packing, how will they take what they do not know you have?
If they suspect you are packing, first they have to figure out where your gun is hidden. Belt holster under a concealing garment? Left side, right side, small of back, appendix position? Pocket gun? Which pocket? Shoulder holster? Does the holster have a retention feature like a thumb-break strap?
I teach this stuff as an instructor: teach people how to take guns away from others, and how to prevent others from taking their gun. It isn't as remotely simon-simple as some people try to paint it.
