I carry nearly 100% of the time. They would never even know probably. Idaho, my state, just did away with ccp. On July 1, anyone can carry concealed without any license other than felons of course. They can't carry at all. The state still offers them for $20 for other states requirements and to avoid the background check when buying a gun cuz it takes the place of the background check. My county of about 50,000 people about 20% have a license and a third of them are women. There's a great chance she's carrying too lol. Idaho like ever other gun state has the 3rd (about) highest rate of gun ownership and the lowest gun murders, about.8 (gun states all hover around 1 per 100,000 people, the highest being 3) per 100,000 people. In states with lots of gun laws and low percentage of gun ownership, the gun murder rate hovers around 5 per 100,000 people, the highest being 17. So, you're far more likely to be killed by a gun in states with fewer guns. I know this cuz just did research for a letter to the editor in support of our governor signing the previously mentioned law into place. All stats are from the FBI crime website.
It wouldn't bother me at all. I would feel safer knowing that he was carrying. People who carry concealed are not really the ones to worry or be concerned about. Then again, I don't have any issues with guns in general.
Women who don't like guns for whatever reason or don't know anything about them are probably the ones who would have an issue with you carrying.
She has a right to know that you have it on you before you take her out. Guns can be very triggering, no puns intended. I'm used to it myself, 3 of my friend all have a concealed carry, and 4 others have an open carry. 2 girls, 5 guys.
I read "How would you feel if you found out your date brought their Concealer Carry Weapon on the date?"
I'd think "oh damn someone is overcompensating lol bye!"
It depends on his attitude. The "good guys with guns" wannabe vigilante thing is lame to me. I live in an area nearly everyone has guns, but only carry in instances they feel are probable to need them, so people who are hyperexcited about guns seems overzealous.
I'm more likely to be concerned that he drives safely than the rare odds that a shooter appears in a suburban Applebee's. 🙃
I'd be grossed out, I'm against carrying guns. It causes more violence and danger than it solves.
It seems pointless to bring a gun on a date unless you're going to a shooting range for the date. Do you plan to get in random gun fights with people when you're out and about? I don't have any problem with guns, hunting, home protection, target shooting, or even preparation for zombie apocalypse fantasies... But dude you're going on a date with a girl. You're meeting up with someone that you might potentially start seeing on a normal basis and who you hope you can place some level of trust in. Even warriors lay down their arms when they negotiate.
Nothing in the world wrong with it. I don't know where your from, but where I am that is very normal. She might be carrying too, who cares? I doubt you would want to date a girl who was anti gun anyway
It wouldn't matter to me, I always have a pocket knife on me at all times, when I don't have my combat knife on me. So if she wants to carry a handgun, that's fine with me as long as she is trained in it's use, besides it's her god given right to do so.
I wouldn't mind at all. Keep in mind what the first C stands for, concealed. There is no reason for the other person to know. And in many states which don't allow open carry, any visibility or imprinting of the weapon would violate the conditions of the CWP.
Maybe this is just because I come from socialist Canada, but that sounds terrifying. I personally would not feel safe with a gun nut carrying their piece strapped to their leg while I went on my first date.
