    Concealed means concealed.

    Dumb all the way around, but I hesitate to try to string this guy up, because I can imagine my reaction if I printed and somebody tried to wrestle my gun away from me.

    Bad situation all around.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I certainly do NOT trust the media's account of what happened...I'll wait to pass my judgement AFTER the information becomes more clear. They'll sort it out...I hope the CCW holder does not give the rest a bad name...the media loves that stuff!

    I know in Texas it's not illegal unless certain criteria are met but in a city park it's legal

    No. You can carry open or concealed.
    With that hippie crowed I will never open carry and I will conceal my pistol very well.

    Washington has a law against carry at MUSIC concert ... don't know if that applied.

    WA also allows open carry in most circumstances ... tho' it may cause some hub bubb with some people (including LEO) in some situations.

    I trust almost nothing from the initial media report of a situation.

    i'm not sure why the weapon even cleared the holster, but i'm interested in finding out. this guy may be an idiot, or he may be a victim of the liberal media.

    bringing a bad name to CCW

    There was recently a shooting at the Seattle folklife festival in which I was no more than 50ft away from
    One man one shot in the hand and a woman in the thigh
    Scary stuff
    The police said the shooter had a valid CCW license

    What the heck is that guy on the right wearing??? What a bunch of weirdos. Sounds like this one might have been accidental. Stupid, but accidental. If the gun fell out of its holster and someone tried to fight the owner over, he's the one who should have gotten shot. All in all, I take 2 lessons from this: Don't go to where a bunch of weirdo hippies hang out, and don't carry in an ankle holster.
