The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)
Watch the evening news. How many robbery/assaults were by thugs wearing "hoodies"? Lots. Today it is almost a criminal uniform. I agree with his right to refuse entry to anyone he chooses. Everyone who wears one is not a criminal. But they do raise red flags for some of us when other signs of questionable behavior are present.

I'm guessing it's not about wearing a garment that has a hood but more so about wearing the hood in a manner that prevents ones face from being seen.
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 years ago.
I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.
Ignore this post - I was out of context on my response.

Even if the owner and customer had been armed, trying to draw against someone with a gun already out isn't a winning proposition in most cases.
Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

This I can agree with. Take off the hood. Hang around Ohio State and you will see everyone wears Ohio State hoodies. This is just how it is. I don't think all of us are criminals. Stores around here are cold in the winter time. You have to stay warm. I just got a hoodie for my 92 year old friend. I am sure she isn't a criminal and won't take the hood off when she goes into a store because she gets cold easily. They have no need to fear her. I hate to take the hood off because my hair is all messed up from the hood lol.

Sounds like you can wear a "hoodie" you just need to pull the hood down while in the store,you got a problem with it then take yourself and your hoodie somewhere else

Accuracy ALWAYS WINS! So carry what you can hit with.
If you find yourself in a fair fight your tactics stink.
Glad the long tooth is alright, sucks about the brain cancer. Based on the comments, there seems to be a lot of problems not being addressed in the general area.I found that one interesting, especially if there's any truth to it since one of them were reportedly a juvenile.The gun shop an upstanding citizen, AH! He sells guns to the same people who robbed him, and sold the gun to the idiot in Waterloo that shot the Waterloo officer in the face last winter. He may publicly be an upstanding guy, but ask the street cops who really know what's going on. These four guys had been in his store and bought guns from him before.From article. ^Police have arrested Brenton Ennis,18, Craig Whigum, 19, and Orlando Paschall, 21. Officers have also arrested a juvenile.
