However, I did have colleagues who resented the fact that "civilians" (they mistakenly believed that they were not) should not be allowed to carry weapons at all.

    While I believed that I derived my authority from the badge on my chest, and chose to exercise that authority with great care, there are many who rather believe that their authority is derived from the tools of coercion on their belt (pistol, tazer, cuffs).

    Trust me: Bad guys DO NOT wear their guns openly. Also, 99.9% of bad guys DO NOT have permits.

    We never got a MWG (man with gun) call that did not also have some concurrent criminal activity involved. I am sure that, were we to receive a MWG call with no other information, the dispatcher would have notified the reporter that open carry of a firearm was not illegal.


    I wished alot of others felt that way about law abiding citizens.

    I hate one of my first posts here to be cannibalistic to my fellow 2a'ers, but I am having a hard time squaring those that question open carry with them being 2A supporters.

    Ok, so some feel it is a tactical advantage. I get that. But isn't the greater argument here the right to CHOOSE? While some may not "get it", the ability to choose which carry option you prefer means a hell of a lot more than simply having one or another.

    Not to mention, living in TX can be downright brutal this time of year. Open carry would be a great relief during the summer months.

  7. I think that a person needs instruction in current state laws and safety. That being for the carriers and public.
    I have taken numerous NRA classes and I feel that has helped me in many ways IMHO.
