Re: Self-Defense Case in Arkansas. Please Help Me, I Have Never Had a Criminal Record
no need to explain it to the convenience store clerk IMO and not sure how the accountant knows, unless you happen to reach the same level of contact with your accountant as you do the doctor
Problem is that this presumes that simply telling the doc you're carrying will put the doc at ease. Or your accountant, your convenience store clerk, or indeed MOST people that you're going to encounter in a situated transaction (much different circumstance than just people walking down the street).
I can understand respecting any or all of them but realistically, if one is bothered by carrying to the point they feel the need to explain to everybody, maybe they shouldn't be carrying.
didn't know nice had a place here. It's a factual thing. If I need to tell them it's : I carry. I have it on me. If it bothers you, and you have the right to demand it, I'll leave. Nothing nice or nasty about it.
Closer to reality, however, is that there ISN'T a "nice" way to tell most people that you feel the need to bring your firearm to your APPOINTMENT with them
so cops should disarm before entering whether it's for business or personal appointments? on or off duty?
Absolutely NO reason to walk that firearm into the doctor's office.
I think it raises much more interest to secure your weapon as you set in the vehicle than to leave it as it.
Of course, if a person wants to be really nice they can speak with their doctor prior to wearing it in to get their opinion.
