A few weeks ago I had to attend a professional conference in a nearby city. I arrived earlier than I'd planned (minimal traffic). I had to wait around for an hour in the lobby of the hotel hosting the conference.
While I was waiting, I noticed another group was also having a conference at the hotel: sheriffs. At least 20 sheriffs were waiting for their conference to get going.
Most of the gents (and one lady) were dressed in western-style slacks, western shirts, ties, and Stetsons. A few had jackets, but most were in shirtsleeves. Everyone had a prominently displayed badge.
Nobody had a gun.
Okay, one fellow had what appeared to be a gun butt poking against his coat at 4 o'clock. But of the 20+ sheriffs, he was the only one.
When I was in plain clothes you might think I was unarmed too. What you wouldn't see was the one on my ankle and the one tucked inside my shirt.
Concealed means concealed.
