    and as we know the 2nd A says, .......the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, except for people who do not know how to carry them; or for anyone who has not trained according to what the Government says is necessary

So while some consider it "common sense" I consider it a mute point. If a state has no requirements for a person to accomplish prior to being able to do it... then how can we (as a group) say anything about it? Going along with that is the multiple posts about wearing a certain type of clothing while OCing... just gets my goat....
    It is very difficult to tell what the "infraction" was without actually having been there. Then again, it may have been an old, worn out holster that had some meaning to the wearer (gift from G'pa) or it could be all he could afford. It could also be that the guy was just cheap and it didnt matter how he carried the weapon. It is hard to say. The thread took on a tone of "gossip" like folks standing around talking about how screwed up other people are. Just wanted to let you know I read it the same way you did.

    Wow, that's not how I remember it. I read it on the internet though so it must be true.

    TN requires that a person take a handgun safety course that teaches weapons handling and you must pass a shooting course to get you carry permit.

    That's true, but once you have the permit, you can pretty much carry in any manner that you wish. If you want to tie the gun to a rope and wear it around your neck, you're pretty much within the law to do so. Personally, I would rather not see people do that but I'm sure that I do stuff that people don't care for also.

    nailed that!!

    cause we share the same goal, many have a less than a 'trained' for manor.
    they would agree that having a guitar does not make you a player-in-a-band
    yet not see the relationship of gun and usage.

    if it were possible to tie the having of a gun for carry with a (small fee) class of
    4 hours --call it 'beginners carry' and it is optional but there would be an incentive/reward
    for having taken and passed it.
    perhaps the certificate would be in evidance in your favor in court if you should ever find yourself there.
    though the DA would not treat you like a LEO, they would grant you status better than a 'naked' citizan.

    Sounds like that guy needed someone to explain to him the right way to carry a gun.
