Because we all know feelings will keep us safe.

We want our stores to feel safe & welcoming for all,

It's a sad situation with every store giving in to stupidity, at least thats another store I can check off the list. Even in the small town which I reside you can see fear in people's eyes while open carrying a pistol, one day they may make it illegal once again to open carry? Hope not

Notice in the linked article it includes a tweet from CVS stating "do not bring firearms into our stores." Doesn't say "not open carried firearms" it says "no firearms."

So there's that...

Don't know that it serves a purpose. It's just a choice. I've never open carried and never will. I have no problem with it if your the type of person that always tucks your shirt in, and I know some like that. But if you start tucking in just to open carry and show off that it irritates me. I hate a show off. I'm always untucked unless at a wedding or some function that demands it. If I'm untucked I'm carrying which is 99% of the time.

It serves the purpose of allowing me to leave my vest off for a few minutes while making a quick trip. I always carry OWB on my right hip due to too many years of experience reaching there for my firearm. For work and school, where I am not allowed to OC, I wear a vest to cover my weapon. OC allows me to not grab my vest when I run to the store or go to lunch.

It also allows everyone who carries concealed to not worry about if the wind blows their jacket open or if they are printing. I know the law allowed that by requiring an intentional display to be illegal, but we all know of people who were stopped or hassled because of an unintentional display. This problem was solved by allowing OC.

And, simply, carrying openly works best for me. You do you and I will do me. Seems to me that making public and derisive comments about personal choices is both rude and counterproductive.

OC didn’t cause this mess so please stop insinuating that it did. We all know you are not a fan of OC but it is a part of our RKBA and in some places it is an acceptable means and not an issue. You are surrendering your self to the lefty tyrants when you criticize something normal.

Why do people want to sneak around with hidden guns? Seems like something criminals do. Why are you trying to hide that you're armed? If it is legal to carry unconcealed or partially concealed, then that seems like the more honest thing to do, rather than hiding and concealing weapons. ;-)

I open carry 1. Because I can
2. Because it infinitely more comfortable
3. Because it makes the gun accessible without have to clear the covering garment.

:iagree:, "in some places it is an acceptable means and not an issue." Acceptable places are not; IMO, shopping areas, religious houses, sporting events, weddings, Hooters, schools, and other public gathering places. I have OC'd in Glacier NP, Rocky Mountain NP, Estes Park, CO, and other remote places in Montana, Colorado, and Wyoming just to see what it feels like. In a couple of those legal OC areas, I was asked, "what's with the gun"? I had no real answer.

You're right, OC just ain't my thing. Furthermore, in the current widespread, anti-gun atmosphere, I firmly feel that we 2A believer gun owners should not taunt our opposition with our 1791AD Second Amendment rights. There's a lot more of them than there are of us. "....out of sight, out of mind", if you get my drift?
