Best Defense: Right to Carry

The right to keep a firearm for personal defense is, as we know, protected by the Constitution of The United States.  In most states, that right includes carrying a firearm while in public.  While we all believe strongly in the 2nd Amendment, there are times when making your stand on principle may endanger your safety… even your life.

    Not the best picture of Rob Pincus!

    *BTW – I really like how you guys have been going after the “internet commando” mind set…. I chuckle each time I see Rob acting out what some of those clowns post on the Internet

    I consider the Right To Carry segment to be very much “real world” and I sincerely hope that some people that I know were watching and recognized themselves and their actions.
    The programming on Best Defense is very beneficial and I look forward to the program each week. Best Defense has very good coverage of pertinent information presented in an easy to understand format. Keep up the good work. Thanks.

    CC is not the main reason one would be confronted. I OC almost 100% of the time, and I have been confronted and ask to leave establishments before. After one leaves the business, as in the episode; I would recommend following up with the stores management.
    Furthermore, in PA the act of carrying a firearm does not give the police RAS or PC for a terry stop. Why help someone who is not there to help you? I would not recommend cooperating with LE more then required by law.

    I found your segment on cc video helpful to those cowboys out there who act in the same manner. I agree that when you are carrying you must act in a resonable manner and understand that you have a great responsablility to act accordingly. Not only to youself and the public but also to fellow gun owners. Your actions when carrying will reflect on gun owners and cc rights, the media and the uninformed public and also the hate guns groups look for and exploit gun owning and cc individuals who act irresponsibly.

    Great show as always, I think those of us that carry concealed should always be mindful of the fact we are carrying concealed and make sure it stays that way

    Open carry where I live might get you killed or seriously confronted by law enforcement. The laws for none CC handgun possession in vehicles in ND are so convoluted that even the DA would have a hard time explaining and justifiying how it works. The law changes at sundown and again at sunup. That is real handy isn’t it? They have the mentality that noone should have guns on them but LE. Concealed carry isn’t much better. CC is probably only a good idea in your own home around here. You had better have excellent concealment at all times and be very cautious about where you carry. There are so many prohibited areas that I don’t even bother with it at all. If you get killed because you don’t have your gun, so be it. It’s a lot less hassle than dealing with LE constantly, which you would be if you have a gun on you in public or driving around and get stopped. They tend to shoot first and ask questions later. If you did have a gun on you and attempted to thwart a crime or save someone’s life, you stand a strong risk of getting shot if the cops found you with a gun in your hands. LE frowns on civilian ownership of guns here, it’s frowned on from the top down. It’s a bit like a police state. I suspect that if you are a applying for a job at the local PD and you think civilians have a right to be armed, you will not be hired. I’m strongly looking at moving to AZ because of the aforementioned.

    The fact that concealed carry without a “license” is considered a crime in so many states ought to make you think about what you’re getting into and the mindset of what cops think about if they suspect someone is carrying a concealed weapon. You will likely be immediately considered to be a “bad guy” in a whole lot of places, especially non gun friendly places like I described above.
