    Why show people you are armed? Is it to make society more polite? In other words, make people react to the site of the gun, ie, don't try to do harm to anyone because you have a gun and you will use it if necessary? Isn't that reacting to stimuli?

    Or is it to get people comfortable with seeing guns in public so that over time they react more positively to seeing those guns, ie, so that guns become more normalized? Isn't that reacting to stimuli?

    If it's not the two examples above what is the point of OC?
