    In my experience 90% of the population have such poor situational awareness they do not spot printing, let alone OC.
    On the rare occasion that I do OC most people do not even notice.

    You called it fir what it is. A poorly written opinion piece. I also think staging photos to illustrate a point is bad journalism. It is fake. Nowuf the writer had real life photos taken on the street it might have made a point. I am very observant when our abd about, and I can only recall three times when it was clear the a person had a concealed weapon on them. Well, they have to make new content to get the hits on the site.

    Most of the stuff written today is drivel mixed with opinions. Which, I suspect is more for the purpose of having something for general public to indulge in than anything of real substance.

    You can interest children with fairy tales and bedtime stories.

    The 90% aren't the problem.

    I don't think this article is totally wrong. There are some good points here. I think more people notice than we think.

    I think I mentioned this before but the manager of the apartments I live inmade me because she noticed the weight ofmy M&P Shield in my hoodie. She's not gun people

    I think it would be easy to conceal around complete strangers. The more time you spend around people the more chances you have to be made. DR

    When I first read the title of this thread "Shoot Me First"
    I thought it was about what I tell my wife when she asks me to go clothes shopping with her

    I walked into a cigar store yesterday and spotted a skinny older guy open carrying what looked like two S&W Shields, one on each hip. I spotted his pistols when I walked in the door - he was talking to a sales person at the counter with his back to me the whole time. I walked up behind him and did my business at the register with another cashier. He never turned around and kept Blabbing with the salesperson. The lady cashier saw me eying his pistolas and winked. Geez, if I were robbing the place, I would have shot him in the back of the head and he wouldn't have been the wiser.
