Or maybe they do it because they do not like having to carry concealed. I carry a gun all the time. I have a 5-shot 38 in my pocket. Why such a small caliber, small capacity gun? Because it has to be concealed. If open carry was legal in Florida, I'd walk around with a 1911 on. But that 1911 is kinda hard to hide, especially in t-shirt and shorts weather.
Or they are attempting to show people that just because somebody is carrying a gun does not mean that they are a bad guy or breaking the law.
