Default Man Robbed of Exposed Gun

http://newsletter.alloutdoor.com/link.php?M=209538&N=247&L=15790&F=H

There are many excellent reasons to carry a gun, and almost no reasons at all for a citizen to carry one openly. After all, that’s what led to this open-carry guy getting his nice new pistol stolen from him. When your gun is exposed, people know that you have a gun. Why is that bad? Because it freaks out the watery-eyed wimps, yes, but more importantly because it makes you a target. So, do your best to actually conceal that concealed handgun so you don’t end up like this guy. “This guy” is a 25-year-old who strode into Wal-Mart with a Springfield XD 40 crammed into his waistband at the small of his back. Later, he shuffled out without it. His shirt only partially covered his firearm, so it was easily visible to a pair of miscreants. While one bad guy waited outside, another followed the victim into the Wal-Mart bathroom, where he clobbered the gun’s owner, knocked him down, and took away his pistol. Then he pointed the gun at its former owner and instructed him to leave. Afterward, bad guys one and two reunited and left in a dark van, according to video surveillance recordings. One of the two was arrested the next day, “loitering around the Jackson County Jail.” Nice. No sign of the other guy, nor of our victim’s gun. Keep your guns concealed, folks, and pay better attention to your surroundings than this guy did. - See more at: http://www.alloutdoor.com/2015/09/28/non-concealed-carry-gun-stolen-in-wal-mart-bathroom-because-it-wasnt-concealed/#sthash.OtecP5nq.dpuf

This is a good example of the mentality of some people.

There are numerous questions that could be asked, but it is a moot point now.

Training and situation awareness seem to be lacking here.

Not coming from America, i don't understand why someone would choose open carry over concealed carry where allowed. I know here it would not be allowed, and if it was no one would do it. I wonder what the different mindset is.

Let this be a lesson to all you policemen. Cover that gun up.

This needs to put into the proper perspective. How often does this happen? What are the numbers of open carriers? What's the percentages? How often does this happen to concealed carriers. What's the percentages? Basing an opinion on an isolated incident without knowing all the facts is what liberals do. Telling others they should do what you do is how liberals think. You are blaming how someone carried and not blaming the thief for anything. Does this sound familiar? The liberal brainwashing has really worked it's magic.

I'll tell you why. For instance, in my state it is perfectly legal to open carry and I don't have to spend 100 dollars for a class and 75 dollars for a permit. I find it repulsive that they say I have to pay them if I want to put shirt tail over my gun. I thought my right to keep and bear arms wasn't supposed to be infringed. How can they justify putting a tax on a constitutional right?

So you are doing it for monetary and political reasons, what other reasons do people open carry for.
