I doubt I will OC and I know there is another thread on this but just wanted to remind all and say Happy New Year !! Be safe everyone however you choose to carry !
If we all open carried A LOT of people would be arrested because only 3% of the Texas population has a carry license(that statistic is based off the 2014 numbers on the DPS website). I get what you are saying though.Imagine if everyone that could open carry, did. Who would be the target of the bad guy in this scenario? Is it possible if we all opened carry, the bad guys would feel outgunned and never attempt mayhem? Maybe the best outcome of a firefight is to not have a firefight to begin with. Why do we never hear of mayhem at gun shows and firing ranges? Could it be from the visual of the firearms in the ready? How is an armed society a polite society, if no one open carries? How polite would it be if everyone were to open carry?
