I am not a fan of open carry, especially poltically motivated open carry. I feel that it is unnessassarily provacative...
agreed. to me it's just another proverbial chest-thumping display that turns people off. it could also have a two pronged effect, if you're a criminal you're going to shoot the guy who you know has a gun, or, you'll garner unnecessary attention to yourself via the cops. doesn't seem like a very bright thing to do
