I tend to agree with you Jerry. There is a tactful way of trying to explain why we OC. If we come on too strong we run the risk of highly offending this type individual. I have not yet had a negative experience with OC to & from work. I do have the odd reaction from kids occasionally. But as to adults, I have had no problems with negative attitudes toward OC.
When it does eventually happen I'll try and be as tactful as possible based upon the degree of attitude this person has about handguns. There is no point in giving the public at large that we handgun owners are rude, crude and obnoxious. We should be trying to convert them to seeing our point of view as best we can.
But that's IMHO!
