The victim kind of asked for it. No holster, not hidden, not even in front of him? Really?

This guy needs his carry permit revoked.

Sad and scary - The bad guy stole a gun.

And the owner? Dumb, and very lucky not to be shot with his own gun or at least badly beaten.

I'm not usually in favor of gun control but perhaps people need more classes before leaving home.

In NC anyone can own a gun but to carry it concealed you need an 8 hour class about proper handling of it. I think that's fair and if this person went through the class he missed some valuable pointers. That's part of where the gun control debate breaks down also. Open carry states and those with no restriction on concealed carry are going too far because you are putting guns in untrained hands.

parkerd wrote:Agree with that concern. The state of concealed carry classes is embarrassing and borders on dangerous. In too many states people watch a video and take a few shots on a target and then think they are Rambo vigilantes. If gun owners/carriers want to be taken seriously they needed to be effectively trained in all the various elements of concealed carry.

I open carry in a holster with a thumb break. I keep it at about 3:30, or where my elbow can feel it. Always be aware of your surroundings. I have also trained for the off chance that someone does go for my gun. They'd be lucky to get away without at least a broken wrist.
