If loose gun laws are good for criminals why do criminals support gun control?
I wear what I feel like wearing. I don't let "possibilities" dictate my wardrobe, and mommy quit picking my clothes out around the third grade.
If my Marine shirts/hats that my son gave me offend someone, tough tacos. Same with the Navy garb I have, and the gun related stuff. I dress for my own comfort, to heck with anyone (including BG's) else.

I lean towards the firearms advertising making BGs hesitate and avoid you. It's the same as being self-confident and aware versus timid and afraid -- which prey does the predator choose? I just finished reading "Armed" by Gary Kleck and Don Kates. Lots of dry reading, but it presented convincing information about the benefits of gun ownership (and absolutely destroyed much of the often-cited gun control propaganda). One deterrent was when BGs *think* there is chance of an armed citizen.
