A perfect encapsulation of why I, as a gun owner, say I see there effectively never being value to carrying a weapon in public. This gunslinger attitude so many carry advocates have, this belief that they will be able to go for their weapon and have it out and usable when faced with a situation… it’s just implausible. If I am a hostile actor and going to bring deadly force to bear against you then you’re not going to have time to go for your piece.
So what are you left with? You, the gun carrier, can pull your piece out at the ever so slightest possible possibility of problems… which statistically are going to NOT be problems that call for a gun. You can pull it out when you’re in an unnecessary heated argument over a can or corn or loud music or something. You can accidentally kill someone who didn’t deserve it.
Or you can have it taken away from you by that person who already had their gun out, or who sucker-punched you and didn’t have a gun before. Or or or or.
I think the cow’s out of the barn on guns being prevalent in America and I question the effectiveness of many gun control measures. But they are rarely as mouth-breathing stupid as open carry advocates and their little outings.
