AZ, another open carry state. Best time to open carry is in the winter when the snow birds flock from Chicago and Boston. They always call 911 when they see someone with a gun. Typical conversation.
"Yes hello, there's a man with a gun walking down the street!!"
"Okay maam, calm down. Is he threatening anyone?"
"No, he's just walking down the street with a gun in a holster."
"Maam, this is Arizona. The open carry of a firearm is legal here."
It's amazing how few criminals want to try to rob a person with a Glock on his hip. I typically conceal because I would rather surprise the crook than give him any warning about the sever pain he is about to enjoy.
Shoot to stop, not to kill. Less legal issues. Two to the chest, one to the head, bad guy stopped.
Reminds me of a joke I heard a while back. Warning *** Temporary Hijack ***
Are you a Democrat, Republican or Southern Republican?
Here is a little test that will help you to decide.
Question: How do you tell the difference between Democrats,
Republicans and Southern Republicans?
The answer can be found by posing the following question:
You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small
children. Suddenly, an Islamic terrorist with a huge knife comes around
the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, praises Allah,
raises the knife, and charges at you. You are carrying a Glock 40 cal
pistol and you are an expert shot.
You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family.
What do you do?
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question!
Does the man look poor! Or oppressed?
Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
Could we run away?
What does my wife think?
What about the kids?
Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of
What does the law say about this situation?
Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it?
Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does
this send to society and to my children?
Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me?
Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound
If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while
he as stabbing me?
Should I call 9-1-1?
Why is this street so deserted?
We need to raise taxes, have a paint and weed day and make this happier,
healthier street that would discourage such behavior.
This is all so confusing!
I need to debate this with some friends for few days and try to come to
