    TV test - Open Carry in Pa

    One of the Pittsburg tv stations ran this piece last week. When I heard the promo I was expecting the usual slanted anti video. Much to my surprise I thought it was reasonably balanced and showed both sides w/o making a judgement.

    i think they did a pretty good job getting both sides. i think they were definitely expecting more reactions from people. i think most people were just looking at them to make sure they didnt look crazy.

    I live in PA and I prefer CC, mainly because I prefer not to be noticed. I get enough of that with fingers missing off my left hand, an artificial left leg (from below the knee). I don't need to add an OC weapon to that list.

    I liked the one patrons comment "It kinda' makes you feel safe"

    As squid86 pointed out, if the OCer doesn't appear like a drug crazed lunatic, I rarely see a problem.

    I've mentioned before in this forum, in my job I dress well with dress pants, a polo or dress shirt; a number of people [assume] I'm LE.

    The old saying "Perception is reality" rings true for those of us who OC.

    I'd say if those two that OC'd in the video had on hoodies and baggy pants that whole experiment would have been different.

    Bares out what has been said here many times. Most people don't notice, and the majority that do don't worry about it. They understand that the BG's aren't going to openly carry.
