    I agree with most guys here that Clarence never should have been attacked, but my question is, if he had a CCL to carry the gun, shouldn't it be concealed, in a proper holster, and not visible?

    Well no shit, you're supposed to keep it concealed. But say you do see someone with a gun in public. Your first reaction is to place the man in a chokehold? What if he's a cop? You're going to feel like a real idiot for getting shot trying to play hero.

    I totally agree. I've been around open carry people but they always had their weapon holstered. Now I don't agree with Clarence being attacked but he made the mistake of carrying the gun in his waistband.

    Completely agree with you. I might get worried if I see a gun in a waistband but I wouldn't tackle the guy.

    I don't understand that thought process, attacking a man that has done nothing wrong lol.

    Guns are legal in America people. You don't have to shit your pants at the sight of them.

    That is the stupidest argument ever. Because cars and bats dont have alternative primary uses than killing people

    You wait until there's a reason (presumably lawful). Attacking someone because your imagination fears there maybe could be something to worry about is commonly accepted?

    I think it's common for it to be some type of offense to have your concealed carry weapon visible. I'm not up on those state laws though.

    Probably has to do with the recent well known incidents involving dead Black males, like the killing of the Black guy with a pellet gun in Walmart , a pellet gun he picked up at that Walmart.

    Apparently, he only saw the gun under the dude's coat while he was getting out of his car.

    The police got it right here with the battery charge.

    "According to deputies, Foster told them that when he saw Daniels get out his car he caught sight of a gun under his coat, in a holster."

    Assholes with a hero fetish, looking to make a name for themselves and 15 mins of fame and pats on the back. Throw his ass in jail for 2 years minimum. He just attacked an innocent man without warning.

    The weapon was concealed. The fact that sometimes when getting in or out of a car it might be seen doesn't nullify the fact it is concealed . Sometimes you can catch the outline of a concealed gun under people's clothing when they are in certain positions, doesn't mean you should get to pounce on them and take it away.

    If he saw the gun, it wasn't concealed so he was within his rights to act in self defense.

    or at least that's what his lawyer will say.

    The gun was concealed under a coat and in a holster. Under reasonable circumstances it is concealed. Sometimes people's underwear is visible when entering and exiting a vehicle.

    C'mon man. You're looking at this from the position of an intelligent person, not a cowardly bitch. Get real and understand cowards gonna coward.

    How common are CCWs in Florida?
    Do they basically hand them out to anyone that wants one?

    It's not very common actually. You have to go through the Department of Agriculture and wait 90 days.
    You can't open carry handguns either, although that's being challenged in the courts right now.

    Would it have been okay for the man with the gun to have shot the guy attacking him?
