I don't get open carry. I don't get the whole movement. As a long-time gun fan, I had to wait decades for my state (Ohio) to finally pass concealed carry about 6 years ago. Thank Gawd. As most of you know, the whole CCW has swept the country like a tidal wave, something I never would have predicted even a decade ago. We've fought a lot of battles ... and won. And now comes the this whole Open Carry deal. And I'd like the proponents of it to explain to me what is gained from openly carrying their firearms? It seems to me to be an aggressive, unnecessarily provocative act. I much prefer being quietly armed. I don't need to show off. I don't need everybody to know I carry a gun. It's only for me to know ... and the Bad Guy if he puts me in mortal danger. When you walk into a store or attend a rally or go anywhere with a firearms in plain sight, it seems to me you're only provoking people who otherwise believe in a citizen's right to defend themselves into walking the tightrope, into being put in a position where they simply can't agree with such a blatant show of hardware. I want the Good Guys to be armed. I want the Bad Guys to be defeated. And I don't see how Open Carry helps gunowners in any way. I've got my flame suit on. Have at it, boys.
