27. Thanks for those thoughts

I've considered some of these. Among the negative possible consequences to carrying, I don't consider theft at all since a firearm can be stolen from anywhere at any time and having it in a holster on one's person, IMHO, would make theft less likely not more. I feel the same way about a child gaining access to a holstered gun.

I've said elsewhere that I don't carry and don't plan to. I also don't care for open carry in urban areas and places like theme parks. If you're carrying concealed, you can't really leave your gun in a theater, restaurant...

As far as leaving your gun in public restroom... I suppose there are people who could be that negligent so I suppose my #2 should be expanded to include accidents and overall negligence.

The unauthorized use of a firearm by someone not the owner sounds like theft to me. See my comments above about theft. And since we already have laws against theft, how would CC make thefts more likely?
