12. Becaused many people react
Viscerally to someone open carrying who is not wearing a uniform, or not working at their place of business. I'm pro-RKBA and even I react this way. CCW, I am absolutely in favor of. Open Carry, I still am trying to decide upon my exact opinion and feelings, and I use the word "feelings" on purpose. My opinion is if you can CCW why Carry Open? But that is just me.
