While I do not OC in most cases, this came to mind-
Armed robber entered store, shot clerk, and was dropped by a customer that was OC'ing a single action .45.

Seems like it doesnt matter now anyway as this has become more of a pissing match thread and seems to have strayed from the point. I was interested, not so much now. But i tried

You'll see that a lot. It happens. Sometimes the thread calms down, sometimes it gets so bad it gets closed. It's no biggie. Check back later and see what the climate is like.

I think it sort of depends where your at. Where I live, "small town" Oc is fine.

I guess you think it's OK to ask permission form your overlords to exercise your right. ...Others do not. Simply put when toiy agree weith limits to the 2A you are agreeing that limits are fine for a right that is stated shall not be infringed.

OC allows people to have their rights and use them without asking permission form government. It never stops amazing me how many gun owners are OK with that.

I did a Google search. This is the ONLY case I could find where a OCer was targeted because of his gun.

It can happen, but it very rarely happens. You're probably much more likely to get hit by lightning than be targeted by a criminal for OCing.

Manta, to be totally honest, i really don't care what goes on your country, nor your laws or what hoops you have to jump through in order to own a firearm
That's up to you when I see bombs in Boston and children being shot in schools in America I do care what goes on in America and other countries even tough they don't directly effect me. You might only care what the firearms laws are in America I am interested in what they are in different countries.

I'm an old salt and I've never heard of a civilian O/Cer getting his firearm forcibly taken from him and used against him or somebody else...but open-carry isn't common among civilians. It is common for LEOs and I have heard of incidents where a LEO gets shot with his own service weapon, or has his weapon wrested away from him in a physical confrontation. I'm not offering an opinion here on open-carry. A civilian open-carrier is not likely to be confronting law-breakers on a daily basis.
