I moderate you guys to humorous and intelligent, good stuff.
I'd never carry an unloaded gun. Not too hard to get a concealed carry permit around here, I prefer a shoulder holster while riding, if packing. I have practiced the left handed behind the back shots, I figure maybe 50/50 at 20 feet on a radiator... at 100MPH. Florida has a "stand your ground" law now, am I the only one to consider a cage "screwing around", without my permission, while I'm on a bike, assault with a deadly weapon?
Last time I checked "that old piece of paper" we still had the right to "bear arms" (by statute other than "concealed", without permit). I believe it's "generally" OK to carry an Unconcealed weapon around (maybe an AK-47 across the back for instance) but it would SHOCK people in some parts of the Country, other parts would hardly notice.
