Part of the problem is that those of us who are unsure of the merits of open carry can't seem to have an intelligent conversation about the idea without being accused of being turncoats to the 2nd Amendment.
Part of that is our own fault. I read the entire thread twice and the OP a couple of more times. Although I agreed with the argument in the OP, something was bothering me; I finally realized it was this language:

The best way to do that 99% of the time is Concealed Carry. Even if people do choose to Open Carry ...
This is a value judgement that is unnecessary to persuasively making the points in the OP. And saying 'you're 99% wrong, but let's talk' probably does not foster a productive dialogue.
