While searching the web I came across this video demonstrating the effectiveness of concealed carry. This video is a very good video and definitely worth the watch.
In the video you will see a group of citizens ranging in age and training, that all have their concealed carry and actively carry on a daily basis. In this video their skills are put to the test in an office environment. The are confronted with an active shooter and must use their skills to disable the shooter. For the most part they all did fairly well in the first scenario, however, the importance of Concealed Carry (vs open carry) is pointed out in the second scenario when one guy decides to open carry. He is made the first target.
There are a lot of people who open carry, and while I believe it has it’s place and time, I think concealed carry is the way to go.
