Default What is the worst that could happen?

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/12/28/texas-gears-up-for-new-open-carry-handgun-law.html?intcmp=hphz09

Say you go into a restaurant, do you really think there will be a skirmish if about half are carrying a gun?

I actually think you should feel safer unless of course some trouble makers are known to often show up there.

I can guarantee you that no one is going to beebop in there and try to rob the place if they know it has an open/carry policy allowing customers to wear their choice of protection.

I think this would probably keep folks settled.

As far as I can remember, we in Ohio have always had a open carry option.

Worst-case scenario: bad guy attempts to rob the place, good guys take out their guns and try to kill the bad guy. How many innocents (carrying and non-carrying) are killed? Not everyone is a perfect shot.

Not necessarily. Someone doesn't get shot at every robbery; perhaps the robber was hoping no one would call his bluff.
However, we can never know these things ...

When not at work I'm carrying and if I walked into a robbery or if one started while I was there I would hit the dirt with everyone else. The heroic bullshit is just that and why would anybody want to make a bad situation worse by starting a gunfight when the azzhole just wants the money so he can run out. This "I'm a badass with a gun" crap is just the ticket the gun grabbers are looking for.
