    Wasn't bashing open carriers. Just a preference and food for thought I guess.

    A few opinions,

    Let me start by saying, that while, IMO, the "OC-gun-grab" scenario is unlikely to happen, I agree that it is a possibility, and could potentially happen.

    However, I must disagree that OC is as inviting as "flashing a big wad of hundred dollar bills."
    I have to imagine that *most* **criminals** would at least recognize a level of increased risk associated with trying to rob an armed individual, and the thoughts of being seriously wounded or killed while doing so would inevitably, if even breifly cross one's mind. (Read: If this doesnt work out, I will likely be shot. Or, What if he shoots me?)
    On the other hand, the odds of being killed or seriously wounded by a big wad of hundred dollar bills are significantly less.

    Seems like a person has a greater chance of getting killed by a flower pot pushed off a roof by a monkey....

    Well, at least in India.....

    A better target would be one that does not pose a risk to their lives. If you had to fight someone, who would you pick, Gandhi or the Rock?

    "Is it better for us to execute the criminal?" If you are really asking that question then you should not be carrying a gun.
    In case you did not know, carrying a gun does not give you the power to be a judge, jury, and executioner.
