    There is a massive difference between telling the cops “there is a man with a gun under his jacket” and “a man with a gun.”

    Well, that may make a difference to you, but, again, if I see a person with a weapon - under a jacket/in a hand/etc - I still see a weapon and I will still say something.

    If someone is carrying legally and has the necessary documents, then they should have no problem clearing things with the proper authorities. But if you are going to carry, you should probably expect that someone will "say something".

    Sorry you got treated terrible for helping out. We have concealed carry here. If I see someone with a gun I am leaving and telling the store why.

    So if concealed carry is not prohibited in a store (they have no signs up), someone’s shirt rides up and their pistol shows by accident, you’re reporting them to the store?

    Would you do the same if you happened to see a badge on the belt? Some jurisdictions require officers to carry 24/7 off duty?

    I don't understand what you are saying, Tradd. How would an onlooker know whether or not the person had a permit to carry?
    Is a person who reports someone else as having a gun an enemy?

    I carried a concealed weapon every day for years and years and years, and still do at times. I've carried concealed in grocery stores and department stores and movie theaters and restaurants, in taxi cabs and airports and public streets and gas stations. I usually knew when people noticed I was carrying, which to be honest wasn't very often, but no one ever reported me to anyone. I doubt TT would have either.

    About 5% of the population of Nevada have a concealed carry permit. That's 5% of the total population, not just those of a legal age without restrictive disability. Nevada also honors concealed carry permits from 30 other states and your area gets lots and lots of tourists.

    With that in mind, where can you make your statement and still be able to acquire goods or services?

    First of all I have never seen a weapon in 22 years. Not making a statement. The only people I care to see with guns are the police. In Italy they have 2 different types of police forces. One of them carried automatic weapons and it did make me uneasy.
