Thread: OCing and CCW Badges

  1. #21
    For Utah the Utah Bureau of Criminal Identification states that permit holders should not possess or display badges. This is what was presented to us in Instructor training: "U.C.A. 76-8-512(3) A person is guilty of a class B misdemeanor who: displays or possesses without authority any badge... or a reasonable facsimile... with the intent to induce another to submit to or rely on his pretended official authority..."

    If someone wants to wear a badge they should go to the police academy.

    Incorrect. Let me clarify: I was asking if OCers that go to a city or state where OCing is prohibited (but CC is legal), would they go ahead and CC but wear the CC badge in order to let people know that they're packing. After all, isn't that one of the primary reasons for OCing - to deter crime by making it known that you're armed??

    Example: John Smith OCs all the time in his home state. One of the reasons he OCs is for what he perceives as a deterrant factor. He's going to Florida where OC is prohibited but his CC permit is honored. Mr. Smith will CC while in Florida and, in lieu of having a visible pistol on his hip to act as a deterrant, he'll wear a concealed carry badge in plain view. His reason for doing this is so that potential BGs will see the badge and, knowing he's armed, walk away.

    Get it? The badge acts as a substitute deterrant.

    Similar to how the CCW Cape works.

    Personally I think the badges are a bit silly. I just want to know how so many OCers can ridicule somebody for displaying something that basically says "I'm carrying a gun" while their (the OCers) actions tell the world the same thing - "look at me, I'm packing". The methods might be different but the intended result seems to be the same.

    Because concealed means concealed.

    This whole thread wreaks of b2's "common sense logic"...

    Maybe he missed the 5 posts that said badges represent authority not a firearm.

    Oh no, the badge bashers are at it again.

  11. Because the more money I spend on CCW badges, the less money I have to buy reloading components. I would rather reload more than have a CCW badge to wear.
