"As with concealed carry, there seems to be a lot of hypothetical rhetoric in regards to threat situations of 'what could happen?' versus 'what does history show us has happened?' Is there a heightened state of criminal activity associated with open carry versus concealed carry versus no carry (other than the obvious firearms violation for school zone or whatnot)? The answer appears to be 'not really.' Regardless of opinions or beliefs, there is not a spike in criminal activity associated with merely carrying a firearm. The same is true of concealed carry. It is always the intent of the person, not the firearm, that matters." (04/25/11)
