SNIP Just get a note from your mommy implying you have a gun and presto bad guys will leave you alone and the Brady Bunch will be happy!!
Great idea! But, the usual questions:
What caliber of note is best? Brief and underpowered, relying on accuracy? Or, something heavy-hitting like a legal-length memorandum complete with theory as to why you are carrying the note?
How many copies of the note should you carry? Just seven? Or, should you have a high-capacity steno pad with 17-20 copies hand-written by mom?
Which is best for carrying the note: IWB, OWB, ankle-carry?
Would you need a separate note from the sheriff or state police indicating you were authorized to carry your note concealed? Or, would you have to openly carry your note at all times?
If you showed your
note before the robber did, would you be guilty of brandishing? If you flourished your note, would it warrant concern for the safety of others? Paper cuts are dreadfully painful, y'know.
Would you have to notify a police officer you were carrying your note?
Wouldn't it be prudent to carry a back-up note--a BUN?
What if it rains on my note? How long before damage to the ink sets in? What kind of notepaper is best? One some notepaper, the blue lines will smudge real quick if they get wet.
Should I carry cuffs with my note?
Oh! Can I have a badge to hook on my belt that says, "Concealed Carry Note Holder"?
