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.....

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


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


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.

LOL

You are joking about your kids right? 

Quoting romanceparty4u:

If concealed or open carry were allowed, I would not think a thing of it. I'd not call the police, but I would sit far enough away that my kids couldn't attempt to disarm this guy too. I'm for concealed carry, not open.  Curious kids can always sneak up and turn a good situation into a bad one.

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


Can you show me your Constitutional right to feel safe? 


now, that depends on how you interpret it. I take 'promote general welfare' as such. however, you are making yourself look like you only care about yourself...

I'd probably be a bit scared, but for personal reasons. Totally understandable if he had some type of law enforecement job or something like that. I'd try not to make eye contact, lol.

I would be extremely uncomfortable...but that's because this guy looks exactly like my ex-husband...the same one that held a loaded gun that looked very similar to the one in my picture to my head when I was 9 months pregnant...this picture wasn't taken in Omaha, was it?

 I agree.

I was once in a cab in another country with my hubby.  After we got out of the cab, my hubby told me he could see the handgun the cab driver carried (I hadn't seen it.)

Knowing that made me immediately uncomfortable.  There's no way I would've gotten in that cab if I'[d known he had a gun. 


Quoting kidlover2:

I find this post intriguing because we are using this picture and intuition to make our judgment calls. The man looks relaxed and minding his own business. If the picture was different, we might be coming to completely different conclusions on our feelings of safety.

Where I live, you'd be very safe if you did. Those that do not have a gun on their hip are in great danger, day and night. We are pushing for concealed carry----

Quoting Debmomto2girls:

Omg.. No. If I saw someone in the city with a gun on their hip, I would either assume they are an off duty cop (though they normally
Do not carry that out in the open) or a criminal. Most people do not carry guns in their hips where I live.


Quoting DestinyHLewis:


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 offense but by your own testimony, you have issues. I don't think we can base our rights as citizens off of the irrational feelings of some people. KWIM?

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.

I always heard that when people start with no offense but... they usually mean the opposite. 

*shrugs* oh well... thank you for calling me irrational.

that's fine.. just makes some people seem selfish.. eh, I gave my opinion.. apparently, I can't do that either. 

Quoting kidlover2:

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