I don't understand why someone would want to open carry but even if the practice is banned bad guys would still rob good people, shoot good people and kill good people.
Why, because bad guys don't care about the gun laws. Only the good people do.
I read a story or two a week that spells out how a felon or a parole was caught with a gun. Didn't they know they weren't supposed to carry a gun and bullets? Of course they did. They don't care!
Bad guys in California love that good people like your son can't carry a gun to defend themselves. I think good people like your son should have a choice to carry concealed or not.
A MAJORITY of the states allow the good guys to carry. Has it turned into crazy bloodshed? No! Just the opposite. Good people are defending themselves and the bad guys are less likely to commit the crimes out of fear of not knowing if there potential victim is packing or not!
It's not rocket science. Pretend your a bad guy with a loaded gun and I tell you to pick a victim out of two candidates. Candidate A may or may not be packing. Candidate B is definitely not packing. Which would you obviously choose?
That was the simple version of interviews that have been conducted of criminals in state prisons as to what type of victim or home they would choose to attack.
In California, all you hear is bad things about guns based on what bad guys do but not how guns are used by good guys to stop the bad guys. Well here ya go:
Be sure and check through the NUMEROUS stories collected from around the country showing how good guys like your son, women, and many seniors have defended themselves month after month and year after year:
