The ad read: "CONCEALED CARRY CLASS Permit Honored in 34+ States."

Inevitably, I have some questions:

  1. If you carry yourself with class, why conceal it? (That's a bit of humor intended for English majors, editors, journalists, and punctuation geeks.)
  2. Why 34+ states? Do they mean 35? Or 49 or 50 or a specific number between 35 and 50? What about Guam?
  3. Is an EXPOSED-CARRY CLASS offered?
  4. What elements of CONCEAL does the class address (clothing, self-induced injury, shape, protuberance, obfuscation, syntax, diction, angle, lighting, smell, subterfuge, camouflage, foreign languages, winking, vernacular, twitches, tics)?
  5. What aspects of CLASS does the class address (wealth, culture, race, diction, syntax, carriage, manners, mien, gait, accent, clothing, squareness of jaw)?
