If you were in a public place, would you feel comfortable with this sitting 10 feet away from your children?

If you were in a public place, would you feel comfortable with this sitting 10 feet away from your children?
  • Considering the amount of training and certification you are required to obtain before you “can” carry around a firearm. I say yes.

    • None, Mathew; that’s how much training and certification you need in most open carry states…none.

    • Absolutely not true Ben… Where do you even come up with this junk?

    • Without proper fact checking I cannot be sure but on my opinion I would have to disagree with you Ben Hardee

    • Here in Texas, as a prime example, you must first pass the concealed carry class and then apply for your open carry permit.

  • Yes I would. It is the unseen, unlicensed, hidden ones carried by ignoranimous’ that concern me. And yes, they are all around you-you just don’t see them. That is why the guy in the picture is a comfort to me; he is letting the world know that he is legal, trained, and prepared.

    • Agreed!

    • you make me cry for the human race, both of you are discusting

    • Why does the truth disgust you? There are many (unlawful) people walking around with guns hidden on their person. You unknowingly brush past them when you go into public. You see the results on the evening news.

    • Miles Hoffman you see what you fear in yourself, without fear, the gun should be no different to a salt shaker, nothing to fear.. people are trained for open carry, id rather responsible carry up front, than a meth head with a hidden gun. the pro-gun ones taking a loaded ak47 into macdonalds and calling it open carry, are another story..

    • Brett Maxfield a “salt shaker?” Without fear, you would have no reason to carry.

  • Yes.

  • yes i would as matter of fact would give me a sense of security knowing that person is licensed and more than likely very trained in the use of that weapon

  • I sit next to a police man all the time, I don’t see the difference…

  • Yep.

  • Yes I would.

  • Yes

  • Depends on what part of the State or country I’m in. I think it’s unnecessary, but it’s not up to me to force my views on others, and vice versa.

  • No!!!

  • yep i would

  • absolutely i would feel safer

  • Yes.

  • Yes.The fact being that if I were to have children they would be Aware of firearms and the respect they deserve.If he can do it so can I and THATS what America is.Thank you.lol.

  • No, I would not.

  • Yes I would

  • Yup, the double denim look went out in the 90’s…Wouldn’t want to give my kids any ideas.. Fashion Faux Pas!

  • No.

  • Yea. My children would already understand the ying & yang of guns.

    • “Yin and Yang of guns?” If you were one with The Tao, you would have no need for guns.

    • You understood that. Good.

  • Yes most likely because if something happened he would be prepared to defend the situation, which might be to everyone else’s benefit.

  • Hell yeah.

  • id be comfortable.

  • Probably feel safer knowing that there were now two of us if it hit the fan.

  • Yes

  • Only a bollix would parade like this with a firearm!

  • Yes

  • Yes, yes, and Yes!!!

  • Yup..

  • A child would disarm him, not counting him going postal!

    • If your child thinks it’s ok to take something of a stranger’s belt, it’s not the child’s or gun owner’s fault. You’ve failed as a parent.

  • Yes

  • WHY HELL YES

  • Absolutely!

  • Yes

  • you bet

  • Yes absolutely

  • Louie Espinosa

  • Depends. In Denmark yes. In the US nope.

  • Yes, my children’s grandma (my mother) carries 2 fire arms and I let them sit with her.

  • Yes !

  • What’s the problem? He’s not waving it around.

  • Yes

  • If u got ur council weapon license u dont be needing to be showing ur weapon so everybody see it. Thats stuped. But their some ignorant ppl out there. That they do that

  • Yes

  • Yes

  • You could knock him out and take his gun, he should atleast hide it.

  • comfortable – absolutely not !

  • Why not. It isn’t Joe or Julie citizen you have to fear. It’s the Devon Droopy Drawers and his hidden illegal gun.

  • God love ye Antonio… But you lack perception!

  • I have seen this. Many times here in MO and it doesn’t bother me one bit. That being said I would never open carry mine because you have now become a target to someone that is planning to do something bad.

  • Yes.

  • An armed society is a polite society.

    • Tell that to Dodge City, Kansas, circa 1880…

  • Hell yeah. If the shit goes down that means that at least two of us can fight back now.

  • Absolutely

  • Yes I would feel safer than if a Muslim bitch in a burka was sitting ten feet from Mexico!

  • FYI anyone who says that they don`t, police have the same thing..

  • Uh yeah! And I would be more comfortable if everyone sitting next to me was carrying.

  • Yes because if a person with bad intentions is gonna start shooting up the restaurant then they aren’t gonna have their piece exposed to the public.

  • He looks ok to me

  • I would feel safer knowing most of us would carry…. Please carry… As I would do the same…

  • Yeah

  • I do I live in Ga and this is a everyday sight !

  • Yes!!

  • yes!

  • If Kay runs out of lead on one, she has a back up.

  • yes as long as it was securely fastened in its holster–would not want some child or idiot to try to remove it as a joke–that could get ugly.

  • only a responsible gun owner would open carry, it’s the criminals with hidden guns you need to concerned with.

  • Yes. He is a law abiding citizen.

  • Nope at all

  • Nope, it’s not needed. Cops should not have Automatic weapons either! It blows my mind that people are alright with this, yet can’t keep to them selves when they pee…

  • Yup

  • Now a days… Yes.

  • It really depends on who is holding it.

  • Yes

  • i prefer everyone to open carry

  • NO WAY!

  • As a Canadian – I look at this, and shake my head. GUNS. Why is America armed to the teeth?

    • Because we are paranoid.

    • Because Americans Tom are not naive like Canadians who think that making guns illegal protect the public. Restricting guns only keeps guns away from law abiding citizens who are unable to protect themselves in a serious situation. There were 35 shootings in Surrey last month alone.

  • Yes

  • No problem at all with it, used to be that way, if you’re registered to carry a firearm, you should be able to carry it in public places. Used to take my shotgun to school on the bus, keep it in my locker go to sportsman’s club an after school program that was ran by physical education teacher. We didn’t kill each other, REMEMBER BACK WHEN children had respect for their elders? I was one of those kids. Mine are too, they know Dad don’t tolerate rude behavior.

  • no

  • Yes

  • Yes

  • if kids are living in a gun culture, they should be familiar. i’d rather them live in a responsible gun culture, than one based on fear of the imaginary

  • Absolutely

  • yes!!! absloutely

  • Yes

  • I was raised in the southern US gun culture; I have owned and shot guns ten times the national average. I now choose not to…I met too many “law abiding gun owners” and I found us to be paranoid, delusional and generally neurotic. And yes, I AM qualified to use those words. The statistical odds of shooting yourself or someone you love is considerably greater than your odds of ever using your gun in self defense.

  • How about if he looked like this?

  • Definitely

  • Yes

  • Yes, because legal gun owners who have their guns showing are mostly (not all). Well trained shooters with proper licenses. These are the people who have been helping fight against hate crimes and terrorists. .

  • Yes

  • Yes

  • That’s the guy who will save us if a psycho decides to attack.

  • Wouldn’t bother me a bit!

  • I don’t think a lot of people would, with all the crap going on in the world. But there was a time when I would.

  • Yes

  • It would bother me. Who knows what kind of kook is on the other end of that gun.

  • yes

  • Yes… I’d rather see open carry than concealed carry and I’m licensed for concealed carry.

  • yup, but i prefer concealed carry. it saves a lot of problems all around.

  • If he was black or hispanic would you all feel the same??

    • YES I SEE NO RESON THAT WOULD HAVE ANY BEARING ON IT , I THINK WE NEED TO GET OVER THIS RACE thing thats an old point i am wight and most places I am the minority . Please stop playing the race card that game is a different subject . PEACE !

    • I look at the color of someone’s ‘soul’ ; NOT the color of their skin.

  • Yes, I feel like I would feel safer actually.

  • I would feel safe because i would have my AK 47.

  • Yes because i carry also

  • If you are properly trained,and licenced. I see no problem. It’s like having a condom. I’d rather have it and not need it. Than need it and not have it. opinions will always vary.

  • I’d feel safe not just comfortable

  • Ban all guns … use fists and batons. Guns are for weak faggots … you want to hunt .. use a trap or bow

    • Idiot

    • Tell that to everyone that gets shot up around the world .. and stop thinkingbof your self

    • You like shooting idiot

    • Yeah .. but its a sacrifice id make if it ment taking guns out of idiotic peoples hands

    • Guns don’t kill people ,

    • I know thats why i wana see people fight with swords bows and battons

    • Meth is illegal but people still get it. The only people that would follow the law are citizens not causing any problems anyways. Why would you want to force people to not be able to effectively defend themselves?

    • More then Half you shootups are from people that have there gun licences… people have bad days .. and who are you defending your self againts ? … can you not defend yourself without a firearm? Are you sacred of your government? … maybe the problem is your false sence of security? .. you know when your government turns on you they wont be using foot soilders right ? … no they will use the drones that you happily applause when they test there might on other civilians…, .. its only target practice for whats too come

  • YES
    If someone tries to rob that place or shoot the place up then I can feel confident then my child will have a second chance to walk out of this one alive.

  • YES and that’s why I love the South everyone is armed lol

  • Yup!

  • No!

  • Charles Dixon

    A hard case holster with lock so no one can just grab it shows a level of firearm safety, dress and appearance is someone who prides himself, so I should infer he has a level of skill with the weapon. So yeah, I’d feel much safer with him there.

  • Yes I would. I actually might feel safer.

  • I am always aware of my surroundings. I pay more attention to the body language and behavior of those around me. I’m not looking for the presence of firearms. It could be a coverup. Or not.

  • why wouldn’t i?

  • For one thugs don’t open carry do they? And second I always have mine. Yes I would feel fine about it.

  • Sure. There are psycho ‘ s in blue uniforms that scare me more

  • No, but I’m Canadian

  • Of course yes,its not safe

  • gee i don’t know,,,,a few thousand raped, molested, sold and murdered children aside..would you??And by that i mean the for by and of the paedophiles running the place and those very establishments that are there to supposedly protect children that actually act as centers and funnels for these atrocities..and thats just on home soil….

  • No people not in control to carry unless officers in suits.

  • Why knot , don’t kid yourself this is part of the world we live in now . And when some nut job comes in thinking about holding the place and the people in it up . they might think twice about it . Don’t get wrong I don’t like what guns can do to people good or bad but there not going away .I am more worry about what we teach are kids about FIREARMS !

  • 110% yes

  • yep

  • It doesn’t bother me as long as I can see it. It’s the ones you can’t see that cause problems.

  • Have to be this is America not scholastic China

  • Of course yes!

  • Feel more safe,

  • People do you just can’t see them ?

  • Not a problem. I would shake his hand.

  • Ya, I would

  • Yes totally comfortable.

  • I don’t know??

  • Hell yes we would!!

  • Sure

  • Ya I would

  • Damn right I would – I even carry my own………

  • I would be siting next to him

  • yessss

  • I would not mind. It would be the same if a police officer were sitting there having lunch. He has a right to carry it. He would not be carrying it like that if he had an illegal firearm on him. At least I would know he had it. How many other people sit in a place of business concealing a weapon that is not legally purchased for them to be carrying. There are more important things to worry about.

  • Absolutely. Then I know theres at least one other person who will defend every one if some tries to rob the place.

  • As jy weet hoe om m vuurwapen te gebruik kan hy maar enige plek sit Is jy werklik enige plek veilig

  • Yes, my children know

  • I feel like the. Way the person carries their self and dresses, should be took into account.
    As it is is this picture, yes! Very comfortable.

  • No those keys should be in his pocket

  • Sure

  • Yep!

  • Actually, so would I, and my grandchildren as well.

  • Absolutely!!

  • Oh absolutely! 2nd Ammendment allows this!

  • Heck yes I carry my gun not just for my family but for your as well

  • I have one in my purse. Why can’t he have his on his hip?

  • Feel a lot safer if he had one of these

  • He probably save my life and everyone else’s If shit went sour

  • Absolutely. I’d be right along with him

  • Hell no! What if everyone in the room didn’t have a gun, would you feel comfortable? We do here in Australia!

    • That would really suck when someone walked into the room with intent to kill with a gun…

    • Bloody oath Eryn! Thank god it doesn’t happen here in Australia as much as it would in the States.

    • You silly fool. Your media has lied to you. There’s very few cowboys left in the us. Fewer victims too which your country has become.

  • Hell yes! I’m guess the way this is asked it is from some airhead who wants to scare people.

  • Hell yes, Australia has a very high crime rate, I wonder why? Well, only the criminals have weapons. I have a concealed carry permit, you can bet your sweet ass I will use it.

  • Oh hell yes

  • Ummm…..yea….I’d rather a law abiding citizen have it out in the open other than a criminal hiding it b

  • The disrespect…. Who the hell still wears fubu….

  • If I carry I don’t show it !

  • Absolutely.

  • I carry but its concealed

  • The only people who wouldn’t feel comfy is likely a criminal or Hillary or Bama the kind of people who want to destroy our Constitution.

  • Never

  • Yes, and I would be caring. Thank God and my training!

  • No those sneakers look like they belong to a child molester. Thank God there is an armed citizen ready to take him out if he tries anything…

  • I don’t know, men wearing jean jackets are pretty frightening

  • Absolutely, I carry

  • Totally safer actually

  • Absolutely !!!!

  • Damn right, always have mine but hidden

  • Absolutely!!

  • Not a problem.

  • Yep. Don’t see nothing wrong with it

  • Fuck yeah!

  • Why not

  • Yes I would because then I would know if somebody tried to rob the place my kids were safe and that man with that gun may give them a chance at Living

  • Its called teach your kids gun saftey

  • Not at all. Are my kids going to grab it? No! Is he going to shoot my kids? No!

  • Yes! I would feel safer!

  • If he has it exposed in open carry, I would not fear at all. It is the sneaky ones you have to worry about.

  • I would feel very very very comfortable

  • Hell yes. I can see it, others I cant, those are the ones I fear

  • I would take my business elsewhere

  • Yes I would! !!!!

  • Happens all the time here in Nevada. At least you can see it. The places where everyone is hiding them is much more frightening to me.

  • Matt Dorris – 30,000 Americans were killed last year with guns – The Butcher’s Bill for Iraq and Afghanistan was in the low hundreds… Does that not tell you something?

  • Yes, at least I would feel assured that we were safe and protected.

  • YES MAM, SURE WOULD, !!!!!!!!
    HOW ABOUT YOU ?????

  • Yep sure would.. Would ask him to teach my children about the proper use of fire arms

  • I’d personally thank the man for properly practicing the right to being the Minutemen of our country.

  • Absolutely.

  • Absolutely the closer the better too

  • As long as it wasn’t in a bar

  • Very much so.

  • The closer the better

  • I am all for the right to carry. However, gun and keys right out in easy reach for a practiced thief-does this man have full awareness of what is going on right behind him to prevent someone from grabbing the gun and shooting someone else?

    • That holster prevents someone from removing the weapon from behind. It would bind up and tug on his belt. He would then turn around and confront. There is a release on the holster that has to be depressed and remain depressed so the gun can be removed.

  • I wouldn’t care honestly because it’s concealed and he most likely has A permit for it. The people that carry guns around halfway in their pants halfway out that don’t have a permit are the ones I worry about to be honest

  • Absolutely I would.

  • Absolutely because he could be to one to save everyone’s lives in that building.

  • Of Course

  • ABSOLUTELY! !!!!!

  • If I was in Montana I would.

  • Hell yes!! More than them going into a restroom that some nutcase transgender male in a dress has decided to enter.

  • YES I would feel safe. Why don’t you go hide under the bed!!! Just because a person has a gun don’t make them bad

  • Yes. I would feel much safer.

  • Yes I would in fact I would feel a little safer! It’s the sneaky ones that scare me

  • Depend who has the gun!

  • YES I would!

  • Yes, I would feel very comfortable.

  • Doesnt bother me one bit

  • I sure would!!

  • I would feel comfortable simply because the bad is going to scope out the place and shoot him first. I can then pull my concealed and handle the situation.

  • Yes. I carry concealed.

  • Sure! I’m would wear mine everywhere if the company would let me!

  • Nope. Although, I am pro gun, I would much rather people conceal carry if possible. The reason being, if the shooter sees you with a gun, you’re the first in the list because he sees you as the biggest threat. But, what he doesn’t see, is his biggest problem. Get you conceal carry permit people.

    • Where is the proof that he would be the first target?

    • Tracy Dexter think about it. In order to fend for yourself, you have to see the bad guy first. What happens, if the bad guy sees HIM first?

  • All depends on the person carrying and the location, so I would have to say I would be focused on that person and others around him the entire time.

  • He’s in a Waffle House. I thought they were anti-2nd Amendment? There are 30.06/30.07 signs on the ones I’ve seen here in Texas.

  • I conceal for one cuz i live in Arizona and 2 for my own protection. Plus people give you odd looks with a fat 1911 .45 on your hip. Secondly if i were to rob something, im taking his exposed gun before anyone knows I have one. However if i never seen it then im pretty much fucked. Conceal it! As far as kids, parents need to teach their kids gun safety and how to use em. If you get offended looking at a gun then leave this country cuz this is America.

  • I’d sit 5 feet closer. And buy his coffee.

  • YES I would. It’s the hidden guns that worry me.

  • Yep……

  • Yep. Then I would know they were safe

  • Yes. It’s the ones you don’t see that you need to worry about

  • Makes me feel a lot safer that’s for sure.

  • I wouldn’t eat there. Owning guns is a western culture thing. We value owning weapons for everything. I even want my own concealed handgun for saftey and its bullshit. That’s a western culture thing where we all think we need to shoot people and that’s fucked up. We are cultivating our own problems.

  • No wouldn’t bother me a bit

  • Yes! Especially if evil arrived at that moment…

  • It depends. As long as he is not acting nutty, I wouldn’t be concerned and would worry less because he is likely a legitimate gun owner. If he was acting nutty then I would leave or possibly call in my concerns if I didn’t have a gun to defend myself. If I also had a gun, I would be far less concerned, but would leave if family was with me and he was acting nutty.

  • This will be my husband and I. We just got our concealed carry permit.

  • He has it in the open most bad guys hide I would think he is on the up and up. We do have thr right to bare arms .❤️

  • absolutely have no problem with it

  • I have no issue with this. 2nd amendment is my permit to carry open or concealed. My opinion may not matter as I don’t have children. The question was children specific after all.

    • Children or not this is good. Teach kids how to handle and be around weapons! No issues now or later.

  • Yes I would because I would also be carrying.

  • Much rather be in an open carry environment where the majority of those armed mean me no harm than a gun “free” zone where 100% of the armed DO mean me harm!

  • Yes in the right hands

  • Yes. This man obviously has the training and correct permits that allow him to safely do this. I’d feel very safe with him around.

  • I would.

  • He’s not hiding it. He’s showing he’s not afraid to defend himself and others. But its screwed up that more people feel the need to do this because of how often someone who has a gun without a permit is out shooting people.

  • Yes I would !!

  • Yes, the guy’s not holding it and waving it around.

  • I’d have no problem with it

  • Yes, it’s just a gun get over it.

  • I would feel extra safe

  • I carry mine everywhere….thanks governor lepage!!!

  • Amelia Henderson Sarah Weir Vikka Sakalauskaite when do I move?!

  • Yes. I would feel more Secure

  • He might save your child’s life.

  • They would deter theft at my house in pretty sure. Both my daughters know gun safety and how to shoot and so does my wife

  • Yes. At least there would be someone to protect you when someone with an unlicensed, unregistered, illegal firearm decides to shoot the place up.

  • Sure would!

  • Why not? If my kids were with me, there would be one next to them as well.

  • Heck yea .!!

  • Yes!! Absolutely!
    This man has a permit for Open Carry and has been well trained in its use!!

  • Yes why not he’s not aiming it At anyone

  • Well, if somebody steps in and decides that robbing the place for a pack of curly-fries is necessary because he’s high off his ass then the guy near me and my children draws his gun out and settled the dispute…..

    I don’t know, seems great.
    No harm no foul.
    Finish my milkshake and buy my kids desert.

  • I would prefer the sneaky finger guy. Knowing when to use it or not. WHY do you actually know when evil strike? It’s a counter neutralizer!

  • Yes !❤️USA

  • I sure would

  • I live in Idaho. We, as a state, have the least gun deaths per capita. I rarely run into an individual here that hands me a firearm without checking/racking it. If you feel unsafe around guns then you are either 1) uneducated about gun safety, and do not know how to handle a weapon without certainty that it is unable to fire or 2) around at risk individuals who use guns as a means of intimidation and fear. Gums are only as as safe as the people handling them. Be responsible with your second amendment rights and guns will continue to be in our daily lives. Be educated, be safe, and no one gets hurt/killed!

  • Wouldn’t bother me any.

  • I’m almost 100% positive that LA is an open carry state and I went through no certs to get the firearms that I have and they are clean as a whistle

  • Sure would, just as comfortable as I am concealing mine when I am out and about.

  • Yes I would! I may even thank him and talk to him.

  • Open carry does not mean legal, trained, or prepared! Concealed means Legal if you are carrying Concealed with a permit! Most people who open carry cannot get a concealed carry permit and are the ones to be aware of! A lot of them are billy badass wannabes and make themselves targets because all anyone has to do is say “he threatened me with his gun” and the idiot is in a boatload of trouble trying to explain himself. Most concealed carry individuals are legal, trained (because they have to take a course or show proof of military) and are smart about how they carry and know the gun laws for their state. I realize therr are a lot of illegal, gang bangers carrying Concealed but they are never gonna be the ones to walk around showing off their heat either. Put your gun away, get some training and a concealed carry permit and stop showing off your weapon. You look stupid to those of us who legally carry concealed.

    • Mita

      Speculation. Open carry laws with or without state issued permit (besides the Second Amendment) varies by state.

  • I would. Ppl are too sensitive these days. This man could get into an argument with someone and “all of sudden feel like his life was in danger” and try to pull that thing out on someone. Ppl are too paranoid for me. I rather everybody leave their guns home or in their vehicles. I leave mine in my vehicle. Somebody could easily just grab his gun or blindside him and take it then start shooting up the place

  • Yea

  • Sure would

  • Easily

  • Of course!

  • This would NOT bother me one second

  • welcome to Arizona! 100% open carry that’s how it should be .

  • Took me awhile to figure out what the problem was…..you bet, wouldn’t bother me a bit.

  • Absolutely!!!

  • I would be perfectly fine with this. See this every day in Pocatello Idaho. In fact I like it when people come in my store open carrying makes me feel just a bit safer.

  • Nope. I’d be glad he was there. Cause if anyone came in shooting…he’d take care of it and most likely safe a lot of lives.

  • Hell yes

  • And while ‘this’ IS his ‘right’ he should know ALL he is REALLY doing is making himself a target. If the store was to get robbed… who do you think the first person to be shot will be 🙂 I ALWAYS cover my shit UP!!! NO need to flash it.

  • Sure would because Dad has one too

  • I would first explaine to the children that denim used to be a fad, and a jacket isn’t going to hurt anybody’s fashion sense over 40yo.

  • Yes I will keep my comment

  • Well considering that it’s a waffle house n knowing their policy on open caries in their buildings, the man is law enforcement. Yes I would feel much safer.

  • I’d feel safer

  • Yes because he is acting like a good citizen. Not doing anything out of line.

  • Yes You Never Know That Gun Could Save My Child If Anything Were To Happen.
    I Myself Would Have A Gun If I Were Just Another Year Older And Could Get A Licence To Carry.
    With The Way People Are Now A Days You Damn Near Gotta Have A Gun.

  • Sure would.

  • absolutley!!!!

  • Uhh yeah wtf???

  • Absolutely he would be there to help protect the kids!

  • That man has been fingerprinted. Been Thursday extensive background checks. Has no medical history of unstable mind not on any no fly list nor has he ever been coveted of any crime. No record of domestic abuse. So I ask. What do you know about the guy next to him. Yes. I feel great with my kids there

    • Depends on what state…I can buy a handgun from a private party in Nevada cash in hand, no background check…nothing.

    • Doesn’t mean there aren’t laws governing private sales. And there are usually more about carrying a handgun

    • Find me some on Nevada private sales…as far as open carry nope, Nevada is an open carry state, can’t carry on school grounds, airport or federal property. You don’t register your firearm with the county anymore, shit on my ccw license doesn’t state what guns I’m carrying. Just don’t be intoxicated and you can carry it pretty much anywhere. BUT if they ask you to leave you can’t really argue…businesses have that right. Let me edit something…you can’t own or carry by law if you’re a felon and I’m sure domestic violence and other shit, but want I’m talking about is law abiding citizens.

    • Oh…You only get finger printed for ccw. In Nevada, again each state is different.

    • Exactly!!

  • YES. The criminals are the ones who conceal their weapons(or the ones they have STOLEN)

  • Drewtazy .

    YES

  • Yes and I’ll have mine as well! Love it

  • Absolutely, there would be two armed Americans in the same restaurant.

  • I’m not so sure. I would hope there would be a concealed carry person in there. If something goes down, this open carry guy is the first one to get popped.

  • Hell yeah

  • Yes, I would.

  • That guy scares me a lot less than a bernie voter! Besides think of it this way, if a robber comes in this guys the focus not your family. Hes a free decoy! Your family can then just sneak out while the bad guy kills him.

    • I will never understand open carry without level 2 or 3 retention. Makes no sense to me.

    • Because it looks cool!

    • LOL. There’s that I guess.

  • Looks like security!

  • No. Why do we need to resort to violence so often? All of you saying he could defend against a robber… What are the police for? Countries that have more gun protection laws have significantly less violence than we do. So no, I’m not comfortable with this.

    • Do you really want to sit there waiting for the cops while someone is robbing the place or use a means to defend yourself and others?

    • 911 takes three to eleven minutes to respond to a call.

      .357 will take less than 15 seconds

    • So we should shoot a robber instead of calling 911. Let’s just all get guns to solve all our problems and never use 911 again. Hell, we don’t even need police anymore, we’ll just all have guns for self defense!

    • Police aren’t supposed to use their guns unless absolutely necessary, so why should the average person. In the case of a robbery, the police would not shoot unless someone was in serious danger. All of this is so trivial. Guns are not the answer to everything.

    • You don’t have to shoot someone when you use your gun. Pointing your gun at a robber and ordering them to the ground will most likely cause him to stop doing whatever it is that he’s doing until the police arrive. That’s how most gun defense situations go down. If you just sit there and do nothing until the police arrive, people end up being actually robbed and the likelihood of getting their shit back is slim to none because that guy is long gone by then.

    • No actually countries who have more gun laws have the same amount of violence

    • Justin Craighead

    • Since when do laws keep people from doing thing? Why would a gun law keep criminals from using them?

    • So with that logic I guess we don’t need fire extinguishers because we have Fire Fighters and don’t need EMS because we have first aid kits.

    • Marcella Fischbach –

      Australia has seen a sharp uptick in “hot” home invasions and mugging because the criminals have nothing to fear.

      Murder still happens in the U.K. Now it’s blunt force trauma, knives and other means.

      Simply put, stop blaming the tool and start pointing the finger to the ones using them.

    • Marcella tell me about Paris wr people are all unarmed, they wr helpless and killed like pigs. Now tell me what if the Parisians had guns? I dont think 150 will die. Do you understand Marcella? Or you’re kind of stupid liberal moron.

    • “Knowledge” based off of one chart is still ignorance.

    • Resort to violence? Hell, id love to see someone walk up to an armed man who is robbing a place and say “can we just talk this out?”

    • Let’s try to debate without lobbing insults, Lorenzo. She’s less likely to get defensive and stop listening.

    • Actually, assuming he is licensed, he has passed a federal background check, he has no history of mental illness, his fingerprints are on file with the state, he has had SOME training on the laws of self defense in his state, and he knows that unless HIS life is in danger and he uses his weapon, he will go to jail. He is no danger to anyone. I carry legally, but I keep mine concealed, because it does make some people uncomfortable to see a gun in public, and I just don’t want the attention.

    • And btw, 1 in 13 people carry legally. Most of us just choose to conceal.

    • And you are allowed fm vote and breed?

    • Are you really that stupid marcella? We have had people robbed and murdered where I live and the suspect(s) have never been caught. Hell a block from my house a young man was shot 8 THATS EIGHT times and it has been a year and they still have no clue who did it.A block the other way, a young man was walking home from work, two guys robbed him. He only had a dollar. Know what happened? They BEAT him and put him in the hospital. Nope still no suspects. My job has been robbed many times. And I will say 70% of the time the suspect is never caught even with video of the robbery. So that is why I now carry a gun and I have no problem using it if I am being robbed at work, when I walk home late at night, or even walking home during the damn day. You liberals will be forced to change your mind or become a minor minority.

    • Wow Marcella, talk about uneducated.

    • Why are you assuming he is violent? I see a guy sitting at a counter having a cup of coffee.

    • Also, if your plan is to count on the police to provide you with protection, you may want to review the Supreme Court decision on Warren v. District of Columbia.
      https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warren_v._District_of_Columbia

    • Somewhere a sandwich isn’t being made because Marcella decided to get on Facebook and talk about self defense.

    • LOL…. Sure, you call the cops and wait the 10-15 minutes for them to get there while the armed robber “takes care of” the witnesses. I’m sure they’ll get to you in time. We ARE a nation of laws as you suggested in your initial post. Being so, I also have the right to bear arms and the certain inalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If this criminal is armed, then I also have the right to defend myself and those innocent people around me. If you really don’t want the criminal shot, maybe you should teach the asshole to respect the laws and not break them in the first place. It wasn’t long ago that we didn’t feel the need to conceal or open carry. What changed? It sure as hell isn’t the gun laws. It’s morons like you defending the criminals. Teach your kids and others to respect the laws and we wouldn’t even be having this discussion.

    • Okay can everyone stop calling me a moron just because we have different political opinions? I wouldn’t do the same to you.

    • It’s people like you that are ruining this country. Quit being so damn sensitive about everything.

    • So in your world police officers have a right to bear arms and i dont? Id have to say thats a bit unconstitutional. Its sad that this day on age firearms have been mistreated and given such a bad rap. I was raised on hunting and taught gun safety at a very young age. Guns have so many positive applications that people dont see, you are walking in the forest and a black bear decides to try and maul you to death. Your telling me you would rather have a peaceful conversation with it? Also firearms have been providing people and families food for generations. You cant let the bad eggs with the unlicensed and unregistered guns sway your opinion and ruin everyone elses constitutional rights just because you never get out from behind a screen where you read the news about homicides and robbery.

    • And you kind of deserve to be called a moron because it really is people like you that go against everything our forefathers built this country on, that sway our politicians to vote against or make amendments to these original freedoms that we as americans were granted! People have died for what we have, lets not let their sacrifice be in vain

    • I’m not being sensitive. I just think this conversation is becoming pointless if we just hurl insults at each other. Like saying I’m ruining the country. I’m just a young person trying to figure this out and explore my opinions and republicans, so far, aren’t that inviting. That is clearly seen here.

    • And if the murder rate is so much better in other countries… What are you still doing here ✌

    • Listen, I’m 18 and about to go to college. Where the hell do you want me to go? I don’t have money. And it’s not like our country helps college kids very much!

    • I dont support political parties this day in age. Its not like our votes make a difference, there is proof of fixed ballots. BUT that being said, when a group of people like you join together with a common goal “gun control” our elected officials are forced to respond in a way that represents the popular opinion. If the popular opinion is that we need more restriction then that only further diminishes our constitutional rights.

    • I never said that we should get rid of firearms completely. I’m trying to say we should increase gun laws. Keep your guns. I don’t want them but if you feel the need to have them, go ahead.

    • Canada. Go get your “free” inferior education and health care. I bet the murder rates not so bad in the middle of the tundra

    • You just contradicted your entire argument.

    • No. My argument the entire time was increasing gun laws. Like they do in other countries. They have guns in other countries, they just have stricter laws.

    • And by the way, things change. Our forefathers owned slaves. We need to change our laws to keep up with the times. It can’t always be like it was. George Washington isn’t president anymore. It’s 2016 and the times are different.

    • Get the fuck out of my country I fought for then!!

    • Stricter gun laws ARE NOT GOING TO KEEP CRIMINALS FROM HAVING THEM. Get your head out of your ass. Drugs are illegal and hmmm I do believe people still do drugs! Laws mean nothing to those who are after something.

    • It’s not your country, it’s our country, David. And we all have differing opinions that we need to learn to accept. I think we’re all just trying to make things better aren’t we? And Tesha, I do understand your argument but I still stand by mine. And my head isn’t in my ass. I spend a lot of time trying to educate myself on these things and I have found an opinion that suits me.

    • And yet there are so many other countries where people are getting stabbed, unable to defend themselves against burglary and home invasions. Prime example is Anders Breivik. While Norway doesn’t have crimes like this normally he was able to run around freely and kill 98 people and injured even more. Why? Because no one there can legally carry a gun. We have never had a mass shooting on that large of a scale caused by one person and never will

    • Do you think the police would get there in time?

    • Okay but you just proved a major point there, Adrian. “Norway doesn’t have crimes like this normally.” 380 Americans have been killed in 294 mass shootings in 2015 alone. That’s a problem. I understand that violence isn’t going to stop completely and criminals will still be criminals but there has to be a way to slow this down at least a little bit and maybe stricter gun laws are the answer.

    • Marcella Fischbach There is a way to slow it down, allow those citizens who are legally authorized and legally trained to open carry.

    • The problem isn’t that we don’t have enough gun laws, the problem is we don’t enforce the laws already on the books or the punishment for misconduct with a firearm is essentially a slap on the wrist for a criminal.

    • Chicago and New York have the most strict gun laws look at their murder rates…. You’re way to uneducated to start shouting “more gun laws more gun laws” do you really believe if someone is going to murder someone they give a shit about the gun laws you want increased? Ask yourself who is more likely to get robbed after eating in this picture the guy with the gun or the guy next to him?

    • *too and you missed a bunch of commas in there. Stop saying I’m uneducated.

    • You need to educate yourself on actual numbers when it comes to gun control. Chicago, the most strict gun controlled city in the us, has 14 arrests for every 100 gun related crimes. The police can only do so much, and the criminals will continue to do what they want. So if your grandma had a gun and someone knew that anyone could be carrying, she wouldn’t be as much of a victim. Look at arizona’s open carry law. My dad is a cop in Arizona and says that violent crimes have fallen so much since then.

    • “Hello police there’s a intruder/robber he’s shooting people.”
      “Are you armed?”
      “No I don’t believe in guns.”
      “Well you better believe in dying cause we are getting there for another 10 minutes.”

    • Oh yeah cause the police would say that. They’re supposed to keep you as calm as possible.

    • That is not true.

    • You don’t fix crime by punishing the law-abiding

    • Says the person with no real world experience

    • I will wait for the five minutes to watch this video.

      —-

      This was made shortly after Barack Obama Started jumping on his Pulpit about more gun control, gun restrictions and whatnot. As is already known by most of the people in the United States, California has the strictest gun laws in the nation. The San Bernardino shooters broke quite a few of them that day, as as outlined by the commentator in the video.

    • She’s an idiot who is uncomfortable with a inanimate object that will not perform its functions unless it is 100% manipulated by the person carrying said object. Oh, did I fail to mention that there’s a 100% chance that the person properly carrying that object properly sourced that object with all background checks??

    • Marcella Fischbach you bitch are a dumb cunt

    • Must expect Peter Pan to come to ur rescue huh? Dumbass

    • Nice language

    • I’m so done with all of you redneck hillbilly hicks. You love your guns like children. Keep taking pictures of your trucks, I hope you learn how to respect others along the way.

    • And … there it is. The defensive attitude I warned about. Bravo. I’m a 2A supporter, but I don’t believe name-calling is the way to change someone’s mind. If anything, it reinforced the stereotypes …

    • I’m sorry I don’t like getting angry but I can’t tolerate people calling me a dumb bitch cunt. That’s where I draw the line.

  • Yes because I have one also.

  • I wouldn’t worry about the people that carry in the open they are abiding by the law you have to worry about the ones that have something to hide

  • Perfectly fine.

    7/10 people legally open or concealed carry in my state every day, and I have nothing to fear.

  • Ummm…I wear my gun on my hip everyday. When a person openly wears it..it’s for protection. Love this guy!!

  • Yes. I would feel it might keep an idiot from doing anything crazy

  • Yes I would as well.

  • Yes because he’s been vetted by the Feds unlike the hoodlums hiding in the alley ways…

  • Yes, cause ill have one to

  • Yes very comfy

  • Yes, this is the land of the free

  • Yes I Would !

  • Looks like an off duty cop

  • This the most stupid thing that is happening in our country.

    • Explain.

    • it is my opinion that conceal and carry or open carry is one of the most damaging things going on in this country and it is distorting the psyche of Americans.

  • No ! Would be going somewhere else!!

  • Yes I do feel great about it.

  • Yes because I carry my 1911 every day

  • Got to love the idiots that think open carriers get targeted first. Please show me your imaginary statistics because they don’t exist. Open carriers deter crime. Why rob a place where someone is visually carrying a gun when you could do so at a place where no one is carrying.

  • Yes sir!

  • I would feel safer as long as he’s not a terrorist but if the terrace came along I’m sure he would take action

  • Yes !! I’d show them mine !

  • Ya why not

  • Yep wouldn’t bother me a bit

  • Depends on if they are acting like a fudd or if they are being a responsible gun owner.

  • Marcella go back to living in your fantasy world and go troll elsewhere

  • I actually feel safer

  • Yep. If someone tried anything I know he will help.

  • Marcella apparently thinks just because someone is carrying a gun they are be getting into all kinds of shootouts. I have been carrying for nine years and have yet to ever have to use it

  • Yep. The fact that it is exposed on his side.

  • Hell yeah

  • Hell yes!

  • It would make me feel safer….if someone came in pointing a gun at people this is the guy that could help save me and my kids

  • Yes I like that I can see it

  • It doesn’t matter, as long as the business owner allows it. If I’m not comfortable with it, I’ll just go somewhere else, it’s not hard. I don’t understand why people get so worked up about this. It’s not your life, so don’t try to live it for them.

  • In South Ga. Owning and carrying guns is a way of life. The way we see it , if you have anything against Guns–the Roads are wide open, HASTA LA VISTA baby!!!

  • He’ll yes I would. He is legal or else he wouldn’t have it on his hip. Also it acts as a deterrent for any dumbasses willing to go in and rob the place.

  • Well I would because my kid’s sit right next to one the is less then 10feet away from them because min dos not live my side at all unless it says I can can’t have one at the place I go

  • Yes at least if someone tried to
    Attack anyone we could. Have the ability to respond !!!

  • Ok!!

  • Yes, and not only yes, but we would have one too

  • nope! not one bit !

  • I would feel safer

  • Yes I would, no problem there.

  • Yes, because my grandchild knows Granny is packing to.

  • No. I have no idea whether this guy is a good shot or even if he is a good guy. Maybe a kid will cry and piss him off. Thank God I raised my kids when this was not encouraged. Why was the first thing sheriff’s did when settling the west was to outlaw guns in their town if this is such a good idea? There was certainly plenty of bad guys then too.

  • yep..

  • I would much rather see the fire arm, than not….

  • FUCK NO

  • Yes. This gentleman has probably had many hours of training and knows the basic rules for gun safety. And he’s on alert for the bad guys.

  • Yeah because I have one on me as well.

  • Why wouldn’t I???

    • My kids are exponentially more likely to be killed by those “waffles”.

  • How’s it any different from police?

  • You bet I would, by all means.

  • Yes cause I also carry

  • Hell yea as long as he knew how to use it and not just carrying it around to be cool guy

  • Yes for sure.

  • white guy with a gun? nah fam, im out.

  • Here we we live – we have very strict gun laws and when I see this on someone I f….k off!

  • Yes I would. I would let them sit right next to him

  • Oh yes yes yes

  • I would but knowing my luck this place just fired him and he wants to shoot up the place.

  • Yes cuz if I need be he can get to his gun if for some reason I can’t get to mine

  • Yes why wouldn’t I? He’s not hiding anything

  • Yea… People are idiots who cares Jesus Christ get over it. It’s not like he’s going to shoot up the place it’s his choice, he’s just trying to enjoy his coffee mannnnn

  • Yes, I would also know there is now at least 2 people carrying in the restaurant. I choose to carry concealed though. I don’t care much for the idea of open carry. Mainly from a standpoint of being an easy first target for an active shooter. Although an open carry if noticed acts as a deterrent. However, greater risk is established on the open carrier when choosing to be armed in this manner. That’s my two cents.

  • No problem at all

  • Analyze the person, not the gun. It’s not going to go off by itself. This guy looks like he’s looking for a refill of tea. So yes I’m good to go.

  • Yup: but I’d prefer it concealed

  • not trying to hiding so whats wrong with it

  • I would unless some whinney liberal was on the other seat crying about wackos with guns

  • Yes!!!!

  • Sure! Nothing wrong with that at all!

  • Hell ya

  • Fuck yes , and I’d have mine right next to him

  • David Ozat sounds like one of those idiots that’s fine with go government taking away our rights and then selling them back to us. If you don’t like what’s going on move to another country

  • ” A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity” —Sigmund Freud

  • If that guy was a white supremacist, a birther, or some Bundy type, than I would conclude that he is a nut and should not have a gun.

  • You bet yer ass!

  • Mike Gerry…..spoken like true liberal

  • I would ask him where he got that and what did he pay for it. Sweet

  • I get to meet some of the nicest open carriers at work. Always get a great conversation going about the gun the are carrying. All good people. Piss on any weak minded idiot that thinks owning and legally carrying a gun is a bad thing

  • Hell yeah

  • Nice try idiots!It still doesnt make me feel any different on our right to bear arms!

  • Fucking retards. All of you. Fucking get over it, it’s a gun. big deal.

  • No! And my kids are over 40. How stupid can we be?

  • Yes. Because you instantly know, in the state of Texas that person has passed an fbi background test. They have also been taught the laws and hand gun safety. A gun is no more dangerous than a car. They are in animate objects controlled by humans.

  • Yep…..

  • Really this question has to be asked in this country??? Of course I would

  • The bad guys aren’t going to pack on their hip for the world to see.

  • Most comfortable!

  • Yes I would!!! 110% all the way!!!

  • If I was also carrying.

  • You all are crazy!!!!!

  • Marcella we call em like we see em. Your ignorant comments tells us all we need to know about you

  • Also long as he is not acting stupid yes

  • Yep cause I know of one even closer to my child.

  • Hell Yes!

  • Yes I would cuz I would have mine

  • As a daily carrier, I can tell you that most of us can look around the room and identify the other carriers. Not by a print or suggestive tee shirt, but by body language. If you’re lost to the world, don’t carry.

  • Yes I do the same with my gun

  • Couldn’t agree more Jake Jones

  • Is the safety on? Is it tight in the holster? Does the person carrying it look and act sane. Yes Yes and yes. ok I’m cool. No worries. It’s the ones I don’t see that would worry me.

  • YES! It is the same or maybe better than a police officer.

  • Yep …

  • Yep, I’m setting closer and have mine on.

  • Yes. He obviously has a license.

  • Yes, period!

  • I don’t care if it’s concealed or not. If it’s concealed it means he had to go to a class to get it. If you look at where most gun deaths take place they take place in the east coast and in the populated cities where education is at it’s minimum and practical use for firearms are at a minimum. I’ve grown up around guns all my life, they’re a tool. It’s all about the mindset in which you were raised in. Country folk aren’t raised to be gangsters and point guns at everybody. Even as a little child I was disciplined for pointing toy guns at people. My grandfather always told me that a locked door only keeps an honest man honest, meaning that someone who has an intention of doing evil and bad things is going to do them no matter what, no matter what laws are in place.

  • We have open carry here in Texas; the law just passed recently. I have yet to see anyone but a police officer open carrying anything. If I had a gun, I would never open carry in a public place like a diner; in my opinion you’re asking for trouble. Now, if you’re a young lady walking across the campus in the dark of night by yourself, go for it!

  • Sir, please put those keys in your pocket. You are frightening my children!

    • Susancnw

      My husband is careful to put his keyring like that into his back pocket. Concealed carry sort of. That way they don’t jingle around and annoy/frighten others.

  • I wouldn’t feel safe. How do I know he’s not a bad guy or someone bad could pull his gun out of his holster when he’s not paying attention.

  • It is holstered, and there is no threat. The gun isn’t going to just start shooting people

  • Yep…absolutely

  • Only if he doesn’t have a badge.

  • I certainly would!

  • Yep, his is safely holstered, it is visible to you not shoved down some gang bangers pants, I see no issue.

  • It wouldn’t bother me. He most likely knows how to use it properly or he would be hiding it!

  • Hell yes I’m fine with that….my 380 sits under my shirt not on the outside….and u would ever know the difference sitting next to me!!!

    • Mike

      I pocket carry my .380 and same you couldn’t even tell

  • Absolutely! !!

  • Without a doubt.

  • yes, carry nyself

  • Yep!!

  • Yea..still prefer concealed but yea

  • Yes. Others will see it also and if they had any thoughts of wrong doing, that will change their minds!!!

  • I wouldn’t feel any better or worse. Any lunatic can buy a gun.
    Being an ass and showing off is just rude and looking for trouble, honestly.

  • Yes. I would be comfortable sitting BESIDE him.

  • Yes sir. Now if he had a dildo hanging out of his pocket I wouldn’t be anywhere near him.

  • Yezzir I would

  • Looks safe to me. If you feel threatened by that move to Cuba or North Korea.

  • I have not problem, I think every retired military ought to be able to carry just like police, military has a lot more training

  • Yes yes yes & thank him when he saves my children

  • I don’t see any reason not to feel safe.

  • No one has to say it Marcella as you have clearly showed us over and over you lack of any sort of education.

  • Yeah I would

  • Of course. It could be me sitting there with my gun as well!

  • Ya I fucking would if he try anything I have mine xD

  • Absolutely. I’ll have mine too

  • No !!!

  • Definitely, no problem at all

  • Yea, very safe, Thank You!

  • I would rather have a police officer there with a gun. But that’s just me

  • Key word….. “Sitting” not waving.. Pointing.. Threatening.. Robbing..

  • Heck yeah!

  • I would feel better if it was a 1911

  • Infinitely safer than even the remote possibility of Bernie sanders becoming president and the things that will follow

  • Very much.

  • I am more offended by the fact that you can only get 1 refill on your coffee…..

  • damn right

  • Yes I would

  • It’s your children that need to be taught the safty in it!

  • I don’t feel safe around ANYBODY who is so insecure they feel the need to do this…

  • Nope

  • Yes but got to get rid of that serpa holster, I get the retention aspect but a much higher chance of a ND upon unholstering for self defense use

  • I personally don’t like it.

  • Of course.

  • I would be right there with him

  • I’d rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it

  • If everyone open carry’s I’d like to see someone pull some shit cuz he or she won’t get far

  • Yes. Very

  • Hell yes !!!!

  • I would. It appears that he is a licensed permit carrier and thus a responsible firearm owner. As noted above- it’s the concealed, unlicensed moron who thinks he is Wyatt Earp and invincible that I’d be concerned about.

    • Mike

      See if he had his permit he would more than likely be concealing it, don’t get me wrong I don’t know what the state is or anything like that.

  • Even better if everyone there was open carry

  • Yes I would. What’s the issue?

  • Ya people need to get over it libtardation is a mental disease

  • Yelp, it may save my life from someone who doesn’t value it.

  • No one gives a fuck about your guns, attention whores.

  • Certainly

  • Absolutely not. At any time that gun can jump out of its holster and start running around shooting up the place for no reason at all even killing its owner. Especially if its crossbred with other manufacturers parts like barrels or triggers once you crossbreed they get nasty. Also if you rescued it you never know if the previous owner took proper care of it or even bathed it properly or even worse beat it with multiple 30cal clip magazines and not letting it cool.

  • Yes I would feel more safe if there was more of this…

  • Yes!
    Of course!

  • I like concealed better. If a thug comes in to rob the place he’s getting it 1st .No chance for him. Not to mention his position could be much better placed.

  • Yes,I would it’s usually the ones you can’t see that you have to worry about.If they have I’ll intentions they’re not going to wear it on their hip.

  • Mita

    We’d probably invite him to sit at our table. Anyone openly carrying like that is the very least likely to be a thug and is the very most likely to be well-trained with a gun to properly react in a robbery/assault/shooter situation.

    My children are not afraid of guns. They show guns the respect they deserve because I’ve educated them about the proper use of guns.

  • Peter Gariepy
  • Polly

    Yep, because I know how to use it, and they know how to respect it!

  • Evan Haley

    Without hesitation. Even my 11 year old son understands the statistics proving an armed populace reduces crime. Also, given the proven fact that legally armed citizens are less likely to commit a crime even than police officers, I have no trouble with guns being around.

    Besides the fact, based on years of ER and law enforcement data, you are far more likely to attacked with a bucketful of other items, it’s also highly unlikely that someone would sit down and eat with a gun on their hip, and then commit a crime. The ones that are planning that, they’re hiding their gun and don’t care at all whether it is illegal, or if the sign at the door says they can’t. After all, if criminals obeyed laws, the illegality of homicide and assault would preclude the need for any further laws on the matter.

    The truth inside me? Those who seek to take guns from the public can be categorized in one of only three categories; criminals, corrupt politicians, and those ignorant of firearms and reacting out of fear.

  • Darren Clift

    I would not have a problem with this guy at all, I live in washington state and have a CPL and conceal to open carry all the time, why is this even an issue, if someone is bothered by me and my gun they are more than likely thinking about doing something bad. If one of my children were to say soemthing to me about him having his gun i would just sit them down and explain to them that is its okay. As a child i was taught gun safety, and learned at a very young age what a gun was, and used for, and how to shoot, clean and maintain a gun. its all education, people need to educate themselves about guns. The bad guy wants to hide it, and doesnt care about laws. I am personally glad to see this guy has his gun and carrying in a very resposible way.

  • David Hineline

    My children would think this guy kind of a pussy only carrying one gun.

  • Jackson Andrew Lewis

    yes i would.

  • Turk182

    Hell, I’d buy him a coffee on top of sitting next to him.

    This is the guy who will spring into action if someone decides this is a good area for an attack.

  • Absolutely not. This is just masculine inadequacy BS.

  • If he has a permit, how is it different than a police officer?

  • Yap

  • My father carried a gun , he said the hardest thing is..someone wants it.

  • No not good, u can carry and not let it be seen by children but still protect them out in the open like that u make yourself a bullseye

  • Yes….no problem

  • Yes I would I would ask him what ccw weapon he likes the best if I was alone

  • As long as he isn’t playing with it.

  • Yes, my son carries.

  • Phuck no! Not because of him rather because I wouldn’t my kids to b fearful. Fn nuts!

  • Yup.

  • If you were in a public place and a police officer appeared nearby, would you feel comfortable? They are armed, you know. Just being armed isn’t a problem But just like the police officer, I can’t read this man’s mind.

  • Yup no problem….

  • Safer than at a BLM rally.

  • I don’t feel comfortable sitting this far away.

  • Yes. A licensed pistol carry license usually means a responsible gun owner. More than someone that conceals an illegal weapon for sure.

  • Yes, I would feel comfortable and I would be carrying too.

  • No and this should be a training tool for kids to learn respect for the man and his gun.

  • Canada Rocks!!

  • Uh……hell yes?

  • Hell yeah I would.

  • Dont cops wear them while eating in public?

  • So now let’s change the scenario…
    Would you be comfortable with this guy hitting on your daughter while having a loaded gun as the pic shows??
    Or
    Do u feel comfortable not knowing that this guy is may be mentally ill and on his last nerve, fully coked out and just having his last meal before going on a rampage.

    Not everyone’s a Hero.

    It’s not about who carries the guns but it’s always about the responsibility of caring that gun.
    Everyone has a different mindset, and that’s more scarier than any Guns out there

    • Well said!!! Well done!!!

    • If more people were open carry or CC you wouldn’t have to worry about 1 person killing 50

    • Cowards don’t like to be shot at

    • Donald Dow.
      That perception “Cowards don’t like to be shot at” is disturbing.
      Are you saying those 50 shot dead were cowards?
      Cowards are those who uses guns to influence violence against each other.
      Tho I’m glad you brought that up.

      That’s exactly what I’m talking about.
      carrying a cc is good n all but that freak had enough ammunition to take out an entire neighborhood.
      Not to mention the gun violence taking up around the streets once in while.

    • Donald Dow
      Ive Been thinking about it for some time now n I could only come up with one reasonable solution.
      Bear with me here or give me ur insight.
      -Private companies should be banned from selling Guns. I mean let’s face it, it was a private gun store that supplied that wacko with enough ammunition to go Rambo thus killing 50.
      – All Guns, rounds, clips, ammo etc should be bought via direct police stores Only ( This will have direct impact on young Gang culture with our teens and locals) and mental ill wacko will never get an ok on military grade guns

      – all young adults 16years and up has to take classes in school about gun safety, gun control, etc. You know, loading, Reloading clips, shooting practices, vital points targets so u can avoid killing etc.

      – a proper education is a must before any licence given and renewal of that licence in every 2years.

      – every gun/ bullets etc ever sold should be traced to the buyer, and every time a buyer buys a new round they should give accounts to what they’re using it for.

      It’s kinda unfair that every bullet shot by an officer on the line of duty they have to give accounts to while Gangs & Wackos never do, they keep on Reloading n shooting without never owning up to it.

  • Well, I am a child and I would feel comfortable because I would have my Ak47 with me.

  • Really. You want to go there. Almost all mass shootings have happened in gun free zones. Shove your tired fear tactics up your liberal ass. I feel safer knowing good men are armed against the trash who have no remorse over your, dying, bleeding, corpse.

    • what scares me is people with that kind of attitude has a gun..

    • Raewyn Stephens What attitude. I see someone minding his own business.

    • Who’s gonna evaluate, “good men” such as your verbally abusive self.

    • Certainly not liberals. Everything scares or offends them

    • There sits a man minding his own business. There is no malice or ill intent. So try looking before reacting.

    • My guns have never killed anyone. Come in my home or hurt my family and I will become karma. I exercise my right to protect myself and my family. If you don’t like guns don’t own one.

    • Tina Zoe Hilliard life will evaluate good men. Not liberals.

    • liberal gun laws lead to shootings period

    • Lack of punishment for criminals leads to violence. Guns are inherently non violent. Start looking at the criminal not the gun. If you really believe the gun is the problem you must be a liberal. Open your eyes. Rosemary.

    • a man as angry as you should not be near a gun

    • Not anger. I can’t understand how people can believe guns are the problem. And frankley I still believe people will take time and look at the big picture. Blaming guns is short sighted. I have been around guns most of my life and have never pointed a gun in anger nor have i thought of using a gun in anger. I have been at the wrong end of a gun twice in my life. I will never be unarmed. You have no idea what it’s like to have someone control your very life. Do not presume to judge me or my intent. You know nothing of me and you have decided I shouldn’t have weapons. Take time to read and understand the second amendment, it was not about hunting. Open your mind and see what liberal justice system has created. This is caused by a severely broken justice system, not guns.

    • You all are asses. it does not take weapons to destroy each other but the desire to harm. Guns do not kill but the person who is behind the gun. It may be guns to blame but what about cars and such? Are they the blame?? Get grip people. Have some brains.

    • That is Truth.

  • Nope! Because you carry a gun I must also> You from the overseas never learn!!!

  • Yes I would as a matter of fact

  • If you feel the need to carry a gun, you live in fear.

    • If you don’t you are awfully ignorant of the real world.. do you also see unicorns and rainbows wherever you go?

    • Fraidy Cat.

    • Yeah.. I could be kicking around a bar and someone can come in a shoot everyone.. or I could be visiting a school and someone could come in a shoot everyone.. you see where I am going with this…? It happens constantly… yet multiple times an open carry has stopped a slaughter of innocent people and for some reason the media doesn’t cover it. Then there’s people like you, who have no fear of reality, the very real possibility that someday you could have a gun pointed at your face, not only that could have prevented the possibility.. if you aren’t afraid you have seriously been too fucking high out of your mind to accept the reality of the current world.. and still live in some mystical wonderland

    • I understand your concern, but it is overblown my repeated media sensationalism. I do have fears, but more about the “good guy with a gun”. The great majority of good guys with guns have had no training other than watching Dirty Harry. They are more likely to kill innocent bystanders than anyone else. I’m not against responsible gun ownership, but I beleive the police are the ones who are trained to handle these situations. In fact the good guy with a gun stands a good chance of getting shot by responding officers. Tell me how they know he’s a good guy. White hat? I am 65 years old and have never encountered a situation where lack of a gun is going to do me in. It just doesn’t happen as often as everyone likes to beleive. You are better off staying out of potentially bad places, minding your own business and being aware of your surroundings.

  • Yes because of some dumbass comes in shooting it’s not going to go well for him

  • Hell yes! Would scare the hell out of me if it was stuffed in his pants.

  • It depends what the keys unlock

  • No way

  • Very much so…Because the kids would be sitting within 3-4 feet of another one…MINE! And I would know that is something were to happen, I’d have some help taking care of the situation.

    • yeah and helping could mean holding the already made damage low. to feel like could being a hero is not worth it!

  • YES, because I would not fear being robber, mugged or my children being abused!

  • Do accident happens?

  • Yes, why is this a question? It’s a right for Americans.

  • Yes… responsible gun owners have the right.

  • I would feel so uncomfortable!

  • It is the ones you don’t see that are hidden on unlicensed/untrained persons that are worrisome.

  • Yes i whould.

  • i`d prefer it.

  • Yep sure would! Because I’d have one right next to my kid as well, I will protect others lives and mine

  • Yes quite comfortable – I started shooting when I was 6 years old and am Well trained – my handle given to me by the Marines was Annie Oakley

  • Yes. Its the concealed weapons that worry me.

  • Absolutely. Better yet, if everyone at the bar had one.

  • I would leave

  • I won’t have a decent appetite when seeing a clumsy show-off dude sitting in the middle of a restaurant, someone can just pull out a kerambit from behind and rob his weapon.

  • No I would not

  • Yeah, why not?!we allow cops to walk around like that…!why would we allow government something that they don’t want us to do?

  • I am just so glad Australia have tight restrictions on who can get a gun … it is true when they say guns don’t kill, people do, but i cannot for the life of me understand why it is so easy for people that kill to get their hands on a gun

    • Black market and on the streets

    • yes i understand and even if there were no guns people would still kill … but how many times do people just lose the plot in a fit of rage and with a gun so easily available do the unthinkable

    • Calvin Bartlett – probably less often than someone with a gun stopping someone in a fit of rage from doing the unthinkable.

    • I do respect your right to defend you and yours i am not suggesting you don’t … We do get our shootings here too .. but the last mass shooting we had was port Arthur in Tasmania .. way back in the early 90’s .. our government placed tight restrictions on who can get a license to own one …. England also have tight gun laws and not even the bobbies on the street carry them. But it is your country and your laws and who am i to say what you do in your own country .. peace to you

  • cops do it all the time morons and you know how safe they are

  • Nope, I live in Canada, not the U.S.A. The only one I’d even feel comfortable seeing that strapped to is a Police Officer.

  • If he’s showing his weapon like that, he’s went through a lot to be able to get to that point if he’s within the laws!

  • There is no hope.

  • Yep all goods.
    I got the same one.

  • yes no worries.

  • Yep because we would have one two and so would the others at our table.

  • doesnt happen in NZ thank fuck for that

  • YYYYEEEESSSSS!!!

  • No !

  • Thank you Allen Baranski well spoken sir !!!!!!

  • NO !

  • I would feel very uncomfortable…

  • Yeh it’s really no different then a cop sitting at dunking donuts. They can be easily having their last meal. Then go on a rampage. Guns don’t kill people. People do

  • I’d feel quite safe.

  • No I would leave immediately, unless the individual identified themselves as Police. Even then, I would remain at a heightened state of alert. I am so pleased I live in the UK, where we don’t allow guns to be carried by any raving nut case.

    • That’s why you have a Muslim for a mayor in London no balls .

  • yes i would . of course if he’s a wise man .

  • yep,yep,yep

  • I would not mind. Someone openly wearing a weapon is not a danger. How do you feel about your children playing in a park that can be reached by a terrorist in a lorry???

  • Only if they were cops

  • Very much!!!

  • NO WAY

  • I’m 12 how could I have children
    But if I was a mom no

  • Really? “this”?
    You mean “him,” I believe.
    He is actually a person. Not a this.
    If you are referring to the weapon, it is not sitting. It is strapped to the hip of the man sitting there.
    Regardless about your opinion of Open Carry laws, He is a person.

  • Not only NO! but HELL NO!! I saw a man walk into our park with a gun on his hip. I gathered my grandkids and quickly left. How do I know he isn’t mentally ill or an extremest? Any nut job can get a gun and use it.

  • as long as its the LAW holdin

  • Yeah right, lets go back in time to the Far West!! & saloons brawls!! Everyone shoots everyone!

    • Well we didn’t have terroists back then only outlaws and the good guys out numbered the bad guys, stick it in your ear.

  • I’m OK I’ll be carrying mine as well

  • Yes…..but you can sit there and hide under the table until you are killed…..

  • How many mass shootings have been stopped by someone with a legal gun?

  • Yes and I would thank him quietly for being that man…a law abiding citizen willing to protect you and those around him when necessary.

  • Yes he is just eating duffus

  • Heck YEA!! my children know about gun safety and their constitutional rights!!

  • So what if London’s mayor is Muslim. As long as he does his job well, he could be from any part of the world for all I care. You will find the British people have plenty of ‘balls’. Even without the ‘right’ to own a gun, we are strong. The Yanks like their guns a little to much. Take them away & they would not be able to cope.

  • Fine no problems with this.

  • If this guy was in Nice… would save some lives. Or in Norway when Breivik killed 77 youngters in about one hour… Or in Paris, in Charlie Hebdos office… or … or…..

  • nope i would not.

  • Not on your life. In Australia that guy would be locked up so fast his head would spin. No guns…..all good.

  • Sure. This used to be the way ot was not to long ago. Then the liberals started crying

  • You bet!!!!

  • Not unless it was a police officer.

  • Ha! (In Salmon Idaho there are quite a few people who would use this as part of their wardrobe daily)!!

  • Noooo!

  • Stupid who the fuk wants there kids in the middle of a gun fight in the first place even if I had a gun I wouldnt want a gun fight with my kids there

  • if you do, then you need to re-examine your fears, you should fear the guy with the hidden shotgun and no permit, and a broken brain..

  • Definitely not.

  • No. No. No.

  • That’s where I would want to be.

  • Absolutely not.
    How do you know that person won’t use it to shoot you?
    Thank god Australia has strict gun laws.

  • Definitely!

  • Yes. I’d like to think mine was right there with me as well.

  • Only a fart sniffing idiot would subject their children to such an experience. Guns may not kill on their own but in the hands of men they are more dangerous than rattle snakes. Those of you who think an untrained reactionary firing a weapon in a public place with no consequences has clearly been educated by movies.

  • I was eating at a Culver’s when a man came in arguing loudly with his teenage son. He had two younger children with him. His demeanor was so threatening that I left immediately. If I had been a “good guy” with a gun and he became more violent, it could have escalated drastically In a very crowded restaurant.

    • That’s one of many possibilities and a very negative conclusion based on fear. I’m sorry that You view life that way. 🙁

  • What’s the problem in the USA everybody care a gun !!!!

  • No problem. This guy would be the hero if some lunatic came in to rob the place.

  • Wouldn’t stay to find out.

  • Yes I would feel comfortable.

  • YES!!!

  • I wont answer..

  • Is he afraid the coffee might attack?

    • Fuck no. Anyone who needs a weapon to dine or to shop is fucking
      Nuts.

  • Nope.

  • Yes because I know he has one, he doesn’t know I do too.

  • Why is this repeatedly put on FB every 10 days?

  • Yep.!!!!!

  • Absolutely! Open carry means he’s been background checked. I’d worry if he walked in with it in his hand waving it around.

  • Ya damn skippy

  • Yes, because IF my children were listening to my instructions, I would make sure they stayed away from this man BECAUSE HE HAD A WEAPON. On the other hand, if the person carrying even thought of drawing down on me or mine, I PITY THE FOOL!!!!

  • People with legal fire arm licenses and legally obtained guns are not the ones you should fear

  • Yep
    Anybody could have one anyways!! How often do you see a bad criminal sit there with his gun on the side like that!

  • You’d better worry about someone who puts his pistol in a hidden holster. Scaredy-cat.

  • Absolutely! Irrational fear of an inanimate object concerns me way more.

    • Yes a very dangerous inanimate object carried by the most deeply flawed being on this planet

  • Rich Pool

  • No. Definitely not. Unless he was a police officer.
    In Australia only police are permitted to carry fire arms.

  • I would probably leave, because all the men who open carry seem to be pretty much a–holes in all aspects of their lives. Mostly in my experience, they are weak souls who have been bullied, and have been looking for trouble ever since. I like more of a concealed carry guy myself.

    • How many do you know who open carry? Please be honest because your generalization is very disheartening.

    • I know 7. Business in my area, including the laundromat, have signs on their doors that say, ” We honor open carry in this business.”

    • I guess no one w er steals laundry in there.

    • Wats your experience Sharon Kurilich Cramer ?

    • You are watching too much Vue. Typical liberal resorts to non facts and ignorant opinion founded on ill informed opinion.

  • Unfortunately, despite it’s not good, it is still better than if in the place of this guy sitting apparentely peacefully to drink something, would be a burgler, or an former soldier of the US Army recently back of the battle field, or a muslim with a pack. The world isn’t the same anymore… Things will be like this until the government stop killing people around the world and start leading people and the world in a good direction… The way we are in will not end well…

  • Not only No,but Hell NO!!! How do I know if he is a “ggod” guy or a “bad” guy with an itchy finger? People who are so scared they have to carry a gun everywhere they go are not sane in MY book.

    • the “bad” guy is most likely not an open carry kind of guy but more of a walk in with a duffel bag start yelling kind of guy. and i’m sure he is not scared.

    • Fuck are you clueless

    • It’s not about sanity. It’s about choosing to not be a helpless victim and wanting to be able to protect what you love and the good people around you if needed!

    • Concealed carry. You have no idea if and what caliber of firearm I possess and you won’t find out until it’s too late.
      Open carry. You can see the gun right there. You can tell the caliber. That person can be disarmed while they are breathing or the gun can be plucked from their lifeless body and our perp just added a gun.
      Open carry is stupid. Concealed is not.

    • Pfffffttt holy shit. Thai is what America has come to.

  • I would leave….this just shows he scared of everyone so I in turn I would most definitely be scared of him.

  • Not a problem, grew up around it and married to a cop most my life so actually feel more safe sitting in that type of environment.

  • I don’t have a problem with it because If I know who has the gun I know which way to expect the bullets to come from and know which way to run.

  • Are we living in the 1860s?

  • Not really….I would leave the place.

  • I’m proud American woman and I carry my nine on my side . I’m a mother who raised three children to know and respect any and all fire arm’s and rifles. They took hunters safety as children. I was raised to respect guns and was shooting at age 9 year’s old. I’m a Hunter and I appreciate my right to bare arms and defend my self and those around me. Peace and love xoxo Sandra Mooney

    • That wasn’t the question

    • It dosnt bother me at all and I’m fine with having my children my grandchildren my self.

    • Seems Like you haven’t seen what’s happening around you, the only people that should have weapons are police officers and hunters, that’s why are policemen are for (with a good training)to protect us, but you people in US are all bunch of Cowboys ok carry on killing each other then.

    • Cute honey, I like your bare arms too.

  • Sure, unless it was pointed at them. Seriously? That’s a serious question? That’s it, I’m offended! LMAO

  • “The only thing we have to Fear is Fear itself.”- F.D.R.
    So honestly, I would not phase me.
    Terrorists like the one who killed in Orlando, would hide the gun to smuggle it in, not open carry it and if they saw a room full of people open carrying, they would think twice about firing a weapon in that place. 🙂 Wisdom > Fear

    • Could not of said it any better.

    • I’d add to it, I live in Orlando Florida. I’m not moving because some nut shot up a club. I will not let them scare me off.
      When I was in the 7th Grade, I was accidentally stabbed with a pencil playing football on a lunch break. It came a half a cm from puncturing my lung. I’m not afraid of pencils.
      My cousin was strangled my a black male back in 2009 in Sanford (Yea the Trayvon/Zimmerman Sanford).
      I am not afraid or hands or black males. She had a daughter that survived her who is mixed B/W too. She’s a nice little teen lady now.
      We can not let others make us afraid of objects. That’s just silly. Life goes on. Do the best that you can.

    • Irony commenting on a gun related topic using a quote from someone who was shot dead.

    • Everyone dies eventually. All we can do is live our life the best that we can while we are here.
      He challenged this country with a vision to land a man on the moon by the end of the century and we responded.
      Also, it wasn’t a handgun like the one pictured. It was a rifle.
      We kept going further into space even after his passing.
      So, his message lived on, regardless of how he died.

    • It is hard to buy a “wisdom” argument coming from someone who doesn’t even take the time to attribute the quote correctly. The quote is from FDR – not JFK. Very sloppy!

    • Actually, you’re right. Edited. Regardless of my error to confirm my thought earlier though, the point stands.

  • Yes now imagine a brown or even a black person with a gun! Answers might differ now!!!

  • NOOOO

  • No. Those keys are a choking hazard!

  • Jesus said ‘ live by the sword die by the sword ‘

  • If he was acting suspicious yeah but if dude just minding his business i really dont care. But i dont have kids lol

  • 10-4, more need to carry

  • Yes….cuz I would have one also on my hip.

  • YES! It’s the unregistered gun I’m afraid of !!!

  • Nope, I would quickly leave!

  • Some people just don’t have any common sense. Media has brainwashed them into this way of thinking . I remember my dad telling me they used to have gun classes in high school to learn how to shoot one properly, yet all the sudden they are bad . In my view the only way to stop a bad man with a gun , is a good guy with a gun . Open carry is my right and I will do so , to not forget where we came from and how this great nation was started . Now we just have a bunch of pussies who are afraid of the unknown

  • Yeap, however mine would be concealed.

  • Hell no!

  • NO! NO! NO!

  • Of course, no,not suitable for a kid

  • I say no . because usually when I meet “concealed carry people ” they are very uneducated looking , sounding and just pretty much seem like complete douch bags .

    • You are so brainwashed so deep about guns that you are protesting about different thing you god damn retard. Does that seem very concealed to you? Im from finland and we rarely have guns and I seem to have more knowledge about gun laws of USA than some USA retard-brainwashee, He’s openly carrying, and I think the qualifications for that is even greater than CC’ing. Please educate yourself before you breed.

    • Open carry ,concealed carry , who cares ? Call people that you dont know a retard and carry a machine gun . hope you feel great about yourself .

    • P.s. you look like a shit bag

    • Holy shit, you make yourself look dumber by each comment you write, I didnt think there would be a way for you to look any dumber but I gotta give credit where credit is due. Ps. I may look like shit bag but your wife or whatever is ugly as hell, cant believe someone would put a dick in that. I’d rather put my dick in a woodcutter.

    • My father has his concealed carry permit, and uses it everywhere he goes. He owns Four .45 caliber handguns (A +5inch Glock, a 3 and 5 inch variant of the well known 1911, and an H&K) and takes at least one wherever he can use his concealed carry permit. He is an Active Duty US Army MP (Military Policeman) Major with 22 years of experience; and due to his being an active MP, he also has the right of carrying even where those with permits cannot. He has gone to Iraq twice and Afghanistan once (and insists every time that Iraq was the worse of the two. He has seen combat and refuses to tell either me or his wife about the events. He does have PTSD, and some may say to a severe case… but he is not mentally insane and has retained his sanity after three long deployments in a war zone (36 months total spent in the Middle East). He can be an asshole, but he carries for several reasons:

      1. He views it as his duty to protect those he loves and the citizens of the United States of America.
      2. He is an MP and a soldier, therefore he will engage any threat he has to so that the safety of those around him is still somewhat intact.
      3. As an MP, and an active duty soldier, he is willing to give his life for those around him so that they can have a chance if the moment comes.

      My father cares about the citizens of this country, even if he has Severe PTSD and those citizens are assholes like you Jared. He may look like an uneducated douchbag (even though he graduated at the top of his entire class at the Command and General Staff College on Fort Leavenworth) but that is just his personality and his way of casual public attire. You sound like a stereotyping asshole who doesn’t like to get to know people just by their appearance and how they speak to you. There are good people in the world and there are things called different cultures from different areas… My point is, get to understand people before making a judgement… This world has just been getting more and more screwed up lately and everyone focuses on the negatives. How about we look for he positives, try to actually solve our problems instead of blaming it on other people, and give a shit.

    • Obviously doesn’t know the difference between concealed carry and open carry.

    • Really. You paint me as ugly. You really need to educate yourself better. Name calling is childish.

    • Right , you win . nobody’s taking your guns . have fun with them

  • Only in Arizona or Texas could happen that shit

  • Absolutely, personally actually trust a civilian that open caries more that a uniformed LEO and that is a sad thing.

  • Absolutely not! I’d leave

  • Yes….its all about perception…if that man had a police uniform on..we would feel safe and protected…just because a plain clothed person has a gun in view does not equal harmful intent..the opposite i believe

  • Yes definely

  • Of course I would feel safer, obviously the guy has license to carry arms openly, which means he’s responsible and knows how to handle it if situation arises. He’d be actually protection if nignogs started nignoging.

  • Nope. Because the people who commit atrocities with fire arms look just like you and me so who is to say he will not?

  • Hell yeah I would. The only thing ‘scary’ in all of this is some of the anti constitutional anti American and anti common sense comments I’m seeing.

  • no. would get up and walk out. that said, i would never visit a country where personal security was at such risk that guns were thought necessary.

  • Sure.

  • Thank you Margene Stricklin

  • Absolutely not..no way….even Police should not have there’s so open in public…

  • If he was a police officer, YES.

  • Not 100%. Too exposed and vulnerable (the weapon) in that environment. If I was open carrying like that I’d at least try to sit at a table, not the counter.

  • NO, I’d be out of there tout suite

  • No, I would’nt, any sick, delinquant Tom , Dick or Harry can get a gun and put it in a holster. there is no guarentee that this person has is not going to use it.

  • Probably… Even more comfortable, if I was wearing mine, too!

  • Guns scare me.

  • This gun is not really well secured and anyone I feel could take it and then not a nice situation.

  • Hell yes i would

  • No i wouldnt, the guy cant even see that his being photographed unless his posing, hows he gonna see when i unholster his pistol, then he will be the uncomfortable one ! Ha ha !

  • Funny I wouldn’t feel any less or more safe if it were a cop, if something bad happens and you’re at the wrong spot at the wrong time the rest is up to fate… That being said both this gentlemen and cops clearly know how to use a gun if said wrong spot wrong time occurred. Plus I’m not raising a little asshole to run up and grab guns. So yah, I wouldn’t give a shit.

  • No! Absolutely not! If any of my kids dress in a blue denim jacket n blue jeans I’d not be comfortable at all!

  • Obviously this man has way too many keys. Get rid of your old apartment key Todd your not going back to 4a.

  • Yes I would… people who carry a gun like this are going to be the protectors when shit hits the fan.

  • HECK YES ! I’d be sitting next to him !

  • Yes and feel safe for it

  • Absolutely i would feel fine

  • No I do not trust others!! I would leave

  • if you didnt see it, would you still feel the same? chances are 1 out of 20 people a day you meet shopping, eating and walking carry…

  • Does it really matter? A bad guy would just hide it.

  • What? The guy with the Levi jacket on? What’s the problem? I’m carrying too.

  • Thank you

  • Yep, because that’s how I go out to eat!!

  • You really asking this question? Sure he can take your life, but chances are better that he can save it.

  • I live in the UK guns aren’t legal

  • Yes ! If I was carrying one ! Should be concealed tho

  • No as long as he can carry it should mean he is ok to use it when it’s needed.

  • Actually yea kinda…

  • I am a child and I would feel comfortable because I will have 2 AK47 slung over my shoulders.

  • Maybe he is a undercover police officer eating his lunch.

  • I would think any thang about it period

  • No

  • Yeah, why not?

  • I could grab that so fast

  • Yup. I know and see who’s carrying. If there are five, they all can’t be crazy. One of them will defend against the odd one. Also I can make an attempt to stop someone if I see them reaching.
    Yes, very safe.

  • ABSOLUTELY, many people complain because when you have a fire, “why did it take so long for the fire department to get there!”, when you have someone trying to break into your house, “why did it take so long for the police to get there!”. Would you talk to your children about why they have a gun, or not have one and have someone come into the diner to holdup and take everyone’s money, take your child or you hostage, all before the police get there?? My people, stop being sheep and grow the hell up!! Stop being offended by how someone else looks, what education they have, that person may have just saved your life and you never even knew it!!!!! I have saved numerous people in my 30+ years in the Fire & EMS service, and never wanted any credit, it’s because it is what you do, help out your fellow man, quit thinking you are all Prima Donnas and be there for each other, it’s called KINDNESS.
