I have the impression that in most areas, most urban ones at least,
getting caught carrying a concealed weapon without a permit is rather
illegal. Such as a box cutter. And in many areas getting such a permit
-- or permission to have a gun at all -- is hard. One could estimate
the chance of running into a mugger in a situation where being invisibly
armed was useful as being less than the chance of police finding one's
gun somehow and getting upset. And one could carefully live in a
usually good neighborhood and still get caught by the rare mugger.
