“William Coleman III was talking to his cousin near 172nd and Glisan at about 2:10 a.m. on Saturday while openly carrying the gun he had purchased on Friday. Coleman said a man, about 19- to 23-years-old, approached them, asking for a cigarette. Coleman said the man then inquired about Coleman’s weapon, then pulled a pistol from his own waistband and said, ‘I like your gun. Give it to me.'” According to oregonlive.com, the pistol that caught the covetous eye of the stick-up man was a Walther P22. Open carriers will tell anyone who will listen that it’s their right. And that open carry normalizes firearms for the muggles. Concealed carriers like the fact that no one knows they’re packing unless and until they need to. Is open carry more dangerous than carrying concealed?
