I will totally agree with you on that statement. There are many people who are confrontational about it. I have gotten stopped in stores and asked about my gun if I am OC and I be as polite and nice as possible about the situation and will give them my permit showing that I have the followed all legal suits. I have I been asked to leave also due to open carrying in which I do abide to their request and just go out and conceal it if they state that will be ok.
This has happened to me before too
It's legal to Open Carry, without any permits, in my state
I was doing so (before I got my concealed) in a gas station/convenient store;
the cashier lady got all worked up and asked me to leave and a guy in line went nuts on her about how it's my right and all...
I left as the two of them argued about it. haha
