For those of you that do not know I happen to be a cash-in-transit security officer (armored truck). So you could imagine my resistance to this new "open carry"law. I mean we never had open carry before right? Why now? My job is already dangerous enough as it is with criminals carrying guns where I can not see them. Now I have to worry about law abiding citizens carrying guns where I can see them! What horror!!! Why would a law abiding citizen need a gun anyways? I mean with guards like myself and cops open carrying there is nothing to fear! Long story short I walk into Sams club in Pearl which is a notorious haven for those rowdy open carriers. I came in the door proudly carrying my Glock 19 in my level 3 safariland holster and guess what I saw. A hooligan carrying a weapon openly in serpa holster buying a Sams Club membership. Well at this point I got worried. I mean I was the only one in the building qualified to carry a gun openly. After all I sat through a class at work for like 30 min just discussing guns and paid the Department of public safety their fee that made me a qualified weapons handler. He sat there menacingly not paying me a bit of attention. With his clean cut face and haircut. Button down shirt pressed neatly and tucked into his pants with a belt. Clearly just another open carrier trying to be deceptively clean and friendly. All I had was a Glock 19 with frangible ammo, 2 backup mags, and a kevlar vest that can stop rifle bullets. In short I was scared for my life. I quickly breezed by, picked up the money and ran like heck for the safety of the armored truck. I couldn't have been the only one scared.... There were like a million people at sams and they were all pretending not to notice this crazy law abiding citizen with a gun. Scary day guys.
