A 34 year old man who legally owned a handgun carried it out in the open in his holster for protection. Neighbors say they knew he was always armed.So what can a person do if carrying a firearm out in the open isn't enough to scare and prevent someone from robbing you?
"It was kind of scary to just see him walking around all the time with that gun kind of just out in the open," said Shambria Mayham Autman. She lives near Teutonia and Good Hope and said they called him "the guy with the gun." "I think he was trying to scare people off like yeah don't mess with me kind of attitude but it didn't work."
But it wasn't scary for at least one person who robbed the "guy with the gun" at gunpoint.
The victim … believes, in his case, open carry made him a target and he will no longer do it.
He said his case proves gun owners should have the right to carry concealed weapons.Lesson learned?
The president of Wisconsin Carry, Nik Clark, says … I think it really does make the point that Wisconsin should have conceal carry along with open carry so that people who live in a very high crime neighborhood where criminals aren't deterred by firearms would have the ability to conceal carry to protect themselves. The two really work hand in hand."Oh yes, you can't have one without the other...Uh oh, did he just say what I think he said? If criminals aren't deterred by firearms, then WTF is the point of carrying guns, in the open or concealed?
Carrying guns doesn't do a goddamn thing to make people safe.
Their dirty little secret is out. What we have are immature grownups playing with the same dangerous toys that would have normally got them grounded if their parents found out. And when we see a guy carrying a gun, who doesn't assume he's got a small dick.
