Good point. Although, I think deep down inside most of the OC activists (and i'm talking about the orange-tip AK47 carrying, youtube-posting hacks) really do believe something more about their OC habits.
Case in point, the commentary that goes along with one of the random Youtube activism videos. (This one targeting Walmart).
The exact quote:
"A couple of times Ive even seen other customers performing open carry, making the statement "I will not be a victim, give me peace and yield to me without violence", as is the typical statement we that open carry wish to convey."
I think the three words emphasized above is what most OC activists seem want to convey.
