If you were in a public place .........

Would you feel comfortable with this man being ten feet away from you and your family? If not, what would you do?

Would you call the police?

....I am only responsible for what I say,NOT for what you understand.....

Criminals in your area carry a side arm in open view? That's kind of odd...

Quoting Debmomto2girls:

Where I live? I would get the hell out of there. Maybe in another area it is normal to see. Not where I live unless you are a criminal.

no and I would leave. 

His right to carry supercedes my right to feel safe apparently

Yes, that's absolutely correct.  Rights supercede feelings every time.


thanks... sooo.. I don't have a right to feel safe? awesome.. 

You have a right to feel whatever you want to until those feelings infringe on another's tangible right to bear arms.  Then you can leave.


So, his rights can infringe on mine, but not mine on his? cool.

Does it scare you to see a police officer with a side arm too?  I have seen defectives in dress slacks and a dress shirt with a side arm.

I wouldn't look twice. I'd be more worried about the shifty eyed guy hiding it under his jacket...

yup... I don't trust people... and everyone who says that their rights are greater than my own, simply make my fear of them worse. *shrugs* and my husband wonders why I barely leave my house.

No, I would not be comfortable.  I would not call the police, but I would probably leave the restaurant.  Ultimately the people affected by that would be the business owner and waitstaff.

Someone who is openly carrying their gun for all to see is probably not a robber :P He is probably an off duty officer and will PROTECT you.

I'm far more scared of the guns hidden away.

His rights are upheld by law... Same reason someone's racist feelings can't dictate who they hire.
