Just wondering if this is legal in Oregon. I've been thinking about open-carrying just to piss off the sensitive types.
i may upset some people with this comment but here it is . i think that tactically speaking open carry is not a good idea . for one you are laying all your cards on the table and taking away the element of surprise . now say you are in a store open carrying and a guy wants to rob it or harm someone but he hasnt pulled a gun yet . he sees yours and either shoots you in the head or forces you to disarm. i know most will say the fight is on but until there is a gun pointed at your head andyou are about to die you just dont know what your gonna do for sure . now there are exceptions like living somewhere that dosent allow conceled carry . then that is your only option i would have to open carry. but just to do it out of shock value is a really stupid idea . for another do you really like talking to the cops because some liberal dogooder calls them on you thinking there is a crime about to happen . i understand our rights but if you want to be tactical then i say hide your gun till you need it then show it to them. oh i forgot to talk about the open carrying of a large fixed blade knife . i dont see the point unless your hunting or want to look like a felon that cant carry a gun concealed or open
My folder is sort of open carried, the clip and top of the knife are clearly visible outside my pocket. I don't know if I'd open carry just to piss people off but considering how vague the definition of "dirk or dagger" is I can understand why some people who want to carry fixed blades would choose to open carry.
0/10 You should troll harder next time.
I'm against stupidity.
Doing something specifically to provoke someone else, with a weapon involved? STUPID. Does anyone disagree?
Backpedaling later and making it seem to be about asserting a right is bogus, because the opening question was about whether the right existed - but at least it shows some recognition of the problem.
