No, this does not merely occur with the younger and dumber among us. Pit bulls and guns make little people big, they think. Personally, I keep it quiet, and have no reason to brag or to show off or to be bold, now being sixty years old. Other people have got me beat up, before I grew up.
    I don't associate with these kinds of folks, so it's not a problem for me.

    Over the past fifty to sixty years, the American public have been 'sensitized' to firearms. Only police officers wear handguns openly in public. Anyone else is suspect.

    It is simply training, either intentional or unintentional. People have been trained so.

    So, what to do about it? Other than showing up armed and not making a big deal of it, not much. Again, if one is going armed openly, one should do one's best to look calm, competent and 'ordinary'. Clean, neat and respectable.

    I concur. This is what the OCers in Minnesota have adopted as the tactics to counter the "evil" image of guns - make it natural part of life.
