open carry is seen as rude, at best, in modern society. So, yeah, CCW, but I would hate to see an expansion of the Texas model where, if your shirt blows open once, and someone sees it, you get taken to the hoosegow.
What we need to implement is a $25.00 fine for the knot heads who report law abiding citizens seen carrying a firearm in public to the police, even though the carrier is not doing anything threatening. I'm getting awfully tired of the sheep who are scared poopless by the mere sight of a gun, unless someone in uniform is carrying it. Some of the same people who would think nothing of a private security guard openly carrying a handgun in public because he is in uniform, will call the cops the minute they see a non uniformed citizen openly carrying a handgun, even if that citizen is doing nothing but minding his own business.
"If you love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." Samuel Adams.
