Concealed carry unloaded
Our state says you can carry as long it is in plain sight "subject to local ordinances." I worked with a guy named Paul who lived with the ex-wife of a just paroled convict who had been convicted of a crime of violence. The ex-con made it clear he was going to get his wife back "whatever it took." Paul took to carrying a .32 Walther PPK unloaded in his right coat pocket and the loaded clip in the left. He told me that if caught by authorities the charges would be much less than if the pistol was loaded. I have since asked several different people in positions of local authority what the outcome would have been and gotten several different answers which translated into "I really don't know." Has anyone seen or heard of an arrest under these circumstances and the outcome?
