It is kind of silly to carry a "concealed weapons" when people know you are carrying a "weapon" isn't it?

I carry concealed every single day and I promise you, you would never know it, but touch me uninvited and you will surely know it for the few seconds you have left on this planet.

Very few citizens actually want to carry concealed due to the un-comfort of it and would rather open carry in a holster attached to the belt of leg. Concealed carry was put into place in most states as the first governmental deterrent to attempt to break citizens from carrying firearms for self-defense. With high cost licenses, training and repressive laws that create a massive amount of burden on our citizens. For example in some states a person can receive a massive fine just for a visible impression of the firearm being able to be seen through their clothing or for accidental exposure! Forcing concealed carry is unconstitutional The "Bear" in The Right to Bear Arms explicitly mean openly carry and display!

Concealed carry also makes it easy and convenient for a woman to carry in purses specifically designed for their firearms without running foul of the law.

Actually, no. Bare arms would mean to expose them to being seen. Bear arms means USE them in defense of the Constitution and nation against ALL enemies, foreign AND domestic.

Your question is "kind of silly" to me. Why would people know you are carrying a weapon? That's the point of the *concealed* part of it, eh?

Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
