It's technically true if there is another legal method of carry available.
That's AG Gansler's weak argument with stating that we can all OC long guns. You can melt every handgun out there, and next week, every perp will be carrying a shot gun. As Patrick calls it, they're "splititng the baby". It's a gun, and you carry it. Innie, Outie, it's not a bellybutton, it's a defense weapon, and therefore, the element of concealment, or surprise, should lie with the LEGAL and LAW ABIDING holder thereof, not the perp.
I rest my case, your honor
