    You are entitled to think what you wish, that is what is really great about this Country! The biggest benefit to Open Carry is the same as why Police conduct Patrols and that is deterrence via visibility. Except for the truly hardened criminals, the sight of openly armed people is a deterrence, so if by my walking around carrying openly, I can deter someone from committing a crime, then I have saved someone the anguish of being robbed, raped, mugged, whatever.. and that makes me feel better. Being that I do not walk everywhere I go and I drive, I could not realistically Open Carry while driving.. that would be concealing.. So, I have a Concealed Carry Permit (CCP), which allows me to do both as I need to and I do not worry what others think about how I carry when. Would I feel better not having to spend the money for a CCP and then having to remember to bring it with me. I would much prefer for Constitutional Carry to be the law of the land where as long as you have not had any criminal background you can purchase and carry a firearm how you please.

    Of course, coming from Texas where people are so afraid of the sight of a gun that they have laws against open carry.

    There is no more perfect time for....... BOXXY!!!!

    Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman. Amerika: a place where the serfs are afraid of the action the police may take against them for perfectly legal behavior.

    OMG here we go again

    Once again there is no "element of surprise" in a defensive reaction.

    Surprise is an offensive tactic
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

More than likely, running a serial number without RAS is not legal in states where people have not had their rights stolen from them. So raise a little hell and make their lives difficult.

    The key is.. Know the laws in your State and if you know you are not doing anything illegal, do not let anyone tell you that you are.
    Though in that case, if the Manager would not accept my carrying legally, then I would have gotten all of his information, removed myself from the establishment and complain/bring action later.
    There is a Starbucks here just a couple hundred yards from the City Hall and many of our Police and Municipal Court folks visit there. When Starbucks sponsored an Open Carry Day.. There were many in the Law Enforcement fields that got an education at that Starbucks.
    When I inferred that covering it up could be an option, I did so with the presumption that one would have a conceal carry permit. Obviously if one does not, then one would not want to do this. Although WalMart IS private property and if a manager "invites" you to conceal your gun, there is nothing the police can do about it.
