Those would be the same bad guys that paint orange tips on real guns to simulate toys and those would be the same guys who have been known to conceal "guns" in flash lights and thsoe would be the same guys that have been known to conceal guns in "soft drink" cups? Sure.. they will never get them.... Anyways it's not what you wear but rather what you do and how you act that will determine if you get shot or not afterwards...It is for after the shooting. You put it on so that when the professional sheepdogs arrive they will see your status as a fellow sheepdog they will protect you. I doubt bad guys will get them. The bad guys don't even use holsters.
