Still is stunning how casual people are with concealed carry. Just goes to show, for every opportunity a criminal has to get a gun without much of a hassle, they will go for it. The victim is supposedly an off duty cop, but couldn't find any story about this to verify it.

The problem with that incident wasn’t because of the way she was carrying other than her complete and utter lack of situational awareness and exposing it for everybody to see. The key word in the phrase concealed carry is “concealed“ is what it means. When you carry a firearm for protection it’s equally important to protect it as much as anything else and even more so IMHO. If carrying anything exposed you need to have some form of security holster to carry it in so people just can’t snatch it.

Don’t let them know you have it. Especially when walking through the badlands.

Open carry without positive retention and non-stop situational awareness, just stupid stupid stupid.

If she had any situational awareness, she'd have stepped aside and let the black dude go to the counter first, regardless of if she was haphazardly carrying a gun on her ass or not.

If she wasn't an off duty cop then she must have been some sort of elite democrap, this being nyc and all, it's a felony to posses a handgun unless you're schmuck schumer or something....

More comedy stylings from the Open Carry Crowd.


When he stepped out of the store, a 31-year-old man held a pistol to the back of his head, according to a probable cause statement, per the NBC affiliate station KSDK. He then stole the victim's jacket and gun, the probable cause statement said, KDSK reported.

*
The victim fled with his rifle while the accused robber, who had been shot several times, remained on the scene. A third man then also shot him, police said.
