    Question Licensed to Carry/Armed Decal

    I found this "Licensed to Carry" armed decal at at Armed Decal.Com. By the way, I have to note that it is a registered trademark so please do not copy it and... do the right thing. I have no affliation with this organization but I did purchase mine.

    I guess this is supposed to be the recognized decal, created by law enforcement, for law enforcement officers to easily recognize. I was wondering if any body has seen these around and if there are states that prohibit them.

    I for one would not post anything like that on any of my vehicles. Many on these forums have opened my eyes to the fact that posting any kind of GUN decal on your vehicle is just inviting trouble..I tend to think that it could be very plausable. If I am pulled over, I will wait for the officer to ask for ID and then he/she will know that I am armed..thats just me

    +1 I think the decal will benefit BG more than LEO. JMHO

    for not displaying a decal. I don't see any benefit and can think of many negatives.

    No thanks--bad idea.

    Question

    Interesting... I somehow thought it would be a very good idea, especially for alerting BG's and for placing on my home doors, sort of like an alarm deterent sign. It says- "Don't break in here this house has an alarm on it and the owner will be armed!" I was thinking the same would be true of my wifes vehicle and my own.

    I am really very interested in hearing the detailed reasons behind all of your opinions on this, would any of you share?

    Putting the decal on your home is worse than putting it on the car. Your average "gun guy" has more than one gun. Most folks carry only one gun at a time. Having the decal on your home tells the BG that you have firearms in your home at some point. It would be a great motivator to encourage the BG to break in to look for said firearms while you're not home.

    Ditto about giving the BG info about your car. There are 'no-carry' places in this country--meaning you had to leave your weapon in the car at that location. Also, in a state where anyone can have a gun in their vehicle, such a decal indicates which vehicle should be robbed first.

    WOW!!! Very Good point... although I have pretty big gunsafe it may make my home a target for BG's to comeback and try to break into that safe. Never thought about that, although it is a rare occassion that somebody is not in my home (wife is a telecommuter) and our neighbors are very close friends that are appropriately and appreciative nosey with a housewife in one case who is ALWAYS home.

    Please don't think I am tearing down your advice, I am stacking pro and cons. So far your point trumps my thinking becuase my reasoning in not applicable for every persons situation and your thinking is applicable in most to almost all cases.

    Indeed, once again another fabulous point!
