I've read a lot of threads on OC'ing and see you almost get the same debates every time. I know some are for it and for others it's just not for them. I respect everyone's views/opinions on this so this is not meant to start a heated debate. My question is for how you think(OC'ers/CC'ers) the public looks at OC'ers and the acceptance of it.
Back in the day, a ways back in the day, western days to start with. People (some/many good/bad) used to carry their guns on their hips/OC and it was just part of their everyday life. In history you have your outlaws (yahoos) that were shoot em all up but you just didn't hear about your average joe's running around and shooting each other or innocent people for no reason. Do you think this plays a part of how society looks at guns and people who carry them either concealed or openly? I would like to focus a little (all comments welcome either way) more on the OC part of this question.
I'm sure there are many more who CC than OC and thats fine ( I respect what people feel is best for them). In my opinion, and my opinion only, I think that if society is re-introduced to OC/(CC) by law biding citizens who present themselves professionally, no yahoo stuff, that OC'ing could be seen as just a part of everyday life. With what seems to be more people trying to or actually OC'ing do you think that we will ever reach this point? Being able to OC with out all the stereo-types, bad guy, tough guy with a gun, he's gonna shoot us all up, here comes trouble, wanna be cop, and so on.
