Kevin from USCCA preaches on it:

Sure Kevin makes some valid points.  One major thing he fails to mention; I’d be willing to bet most criminals would just choose a new victim if they spot you open carrying.

Bird Law – Still Not Governed By Reason:


APPLETON, Wis. — When Mark Scheffler was asked to leave a gun protest, along with his brown hen named Winchester, on Saturday, it was precisely the point he wanted to make at the popular gathering.

Chickens are far safer than firearms and laws allowing for open carry need to change, said Scheffler of Appleton.  “Carrying a loaded assault weapon in downtown Appleton, the fine is zero dollars,” he said. “The fine for carrying a loaded chicken — and she is loaded — is $263.50.”

LOL I’ve literally been waiting forever to make a real life bird law reference.



MrColionNoir weighs in:

Basically what he’s saying is that we shouldn’t give up our rights but baiters gonna bait… trolls gonna troll… assholes gonna asshole.  Yea that sounds about right.

I really don’t know what the answer is… but like I mentioned in another post recently what I think needs to happen first, is the public needs to be educated on the laws regarding open carry in their state.  This education might have to come from the 911 operator, after he/she asks some simple probing questions.  Whether someones motive for open carry is comfort, to get a rise out of people, or anything else it really shouldn’t matter because the bottom line is if it’s legal, it’s legal.  



FXhummel1 gets after OC’ers:

ENDO Keep Calm And Carry One T-ShirtThat is going to piss off some hardcore open carry guys, even though it’s done in jest.

FX is wearing the ENDO Keep Calm And Carry One t-shirt, which in my humble opinion everyone should own. :P


These guys make some good points:

So yeager carries 3 guns all the time… now THAT is operator.  I bet he’s got multiple backup mags too.

Interesting how they say they don’t know any police officers that open carry off duty… that’s gotta say something about the value of blending in.

I still don’t think a good reason to conceal carry is to protect the feelings of the pansies out there that shit their pants with fear when they see a firearm.  If it’s legal, get used to it and quit wasting the time of the police if the person isn’t doing anything that would suggest they are going to harm anyone.

I know this topic has been beaten to death… but thoughts?


“There is a place and a time for open carry” <— Oh please…

As long as open carry is legal in your state, as far as I’m concerned the cops shouldn’t even be able to stop you.   Sadly that will never happen.

As the open carrier said, “I don’t care if people feel safe or not”. I fully agree with that too. If you can’t handle the laws in the state you live in, then move.
