I dunno SigMan...I think I have to disagree. And I dont hunt. But I also think that the public in general should not be shielded from reality. If they became more used to such things, they would become more normalized.

The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

Why is "Printing" bad?
Open carry and concealed carry are two distinctly different things. Both can be good but, they are two individual and separate modes of carry.

It would seem to me that if you lived in a State where printing is illegal it would be in your best interest to make sure there were no bulges showing anywhere that could be mistaken for a weapon. Lets say you are in such a State and someone notices a bulge caused by your cellphone, walkman or whatever and thinking its a weapon calls police. Then the police show up and find out that you are indeed in possession of a weapon. What then?

If all those "what ifs" came to pass, then it would probably be up to the police whether to charge you with anything or not. As stated previously, a bulge showing isn't necessarily printing. If the bulge came from a cell phone and not the gun, and the police saw that it was a cell phone....the fact that you had a concealed gun in another location should be irrelevant. However, since police are human also, mistakes happen.

It's up to each individual to know his state, his community, and the applicable laws.
