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

I've met 2 gang guys (my friends said they were in gangs and one guy told me about his gang connections) both of they saw I was armed and said they don't mess with anyone who can fight back. One friend said the gang guy was scared of me. He was a police informant too who tried to get my friend to buy him guns illegally. I avoid these "friends" now.

Only time I open carry is when I buy or sell cars to flip, tactical holster with it safely secured. If im dealing with more than 1k cash I want them to know what to expect if they think I'm an easy target. Other than that I keep it at home as self defense.

Truth

I heard a person say that "if you're afraid of open carrying your weapon because people might get scared and ban open carry there's no use in having the right anyway."

i don't disagree with you... and i know this wasn't the intent or underlying message of what you stated
but, i think there's a common misconception that if a person isn't open carrying it's because they think "people might get scared and ban open carry", or they're afraid of offending people, or they're some kind of sally... or this or that...
i don't open carry because i freaking hate the attention i get when i do it. period.
some people, including myself, are just private/introverted people and don't like getting stared at, having random strangers start up a convo with you about your gun (even if it's a pro-gun one), etc. etc.

I would like to remind everyone that political discussion is off limits

If you would like to discuss open carry then by all means, but do so without the underhanded political jabs and statements about losing your rights and whatnot
