And the anti-OC concealed carry only crowd say the same things about those of us who carry modern handguns in holsters on our belts.
And the anti-gun crowd say the same things about both the open carry crowd and the concealed carry crowd.
You're missing the point. The OP wasn't merely exercising a right. He apparently went out of his way to go to someone else's neighborhood and deliberately evoke a response by LEO and potentially cause harm to the open carry, pro-gun movement. Yet, police showed restraint and did not arrest him. They merely detained him for 15 minutes while checking him out. Then he comes to a public forum to bash the police. Thus, it's not about the movement, it's about him. That's narcissism to my way of thinking.
