Same story, another forum...
I was getting ripped a new.....you know, on another forum because I suggested that the man should carry a big revolver instead....started like this:

Pardon me, isn't that the statement made by anti-gun types when we say the law allows us to carry guns?
I still say that we should not start a precedent of condemning lawful activity (stupid or not). Someday, the average folk here may think that anything more than a wheelgun is just askin' for a problem with the police!!!
Get my point? Really....... I was stunned, ABSOLUTELY STUNNED by the response on this forum. The way you have generalized this AK carrier is EXACTLY the way we hate being thought of by the anti's! The difference is that the anti's hate everybody with a gun and some of us here hate only the guy with the LEGAL TO CARRY AK!!!
Personally, I'd be comfortable carrying my full size AK everywhere I go, but it is socially unacceptable. NOT illegal, but socially unacceptable. This is why I choose not to. I may, however, like to exercise my right someday and therefore support those who do.
Actually, I want a PS90 SBR to carry under my jacket all the time, but I hate the ballistics!!!!

My reply: Re: AK pistol open-carrier detained 2.5 hours (Nashville, TN)
I am most definitely NOT anti-gun...I am although anti-dumb. If I was allowed to carry an anti-tank gun ( I can have a 50 cal, so I guess I can) does that mean I should be pulling a cart down the street loaded with ammo in the event of something is gonna happen to me? Think about it.
A handgun version of an Ak is cool...would love to shoot it at the range...but personally, I wouldn't carry it in public because it makes the rest of us look like a bunch of Goobers....IMHO. Every time the anti's get on TV, they have a well dressed, well spoken person talking. Then they turn to 'Bubba' in an orange cap, to get OUR view of things...what do you think plays better on the national scene...? Don't think it's political? Grow up...take a little criticism and understand where the battle really lies.....in the courts.
I am all for open carry for those that are on our side of the law...not an OC discussion, I was just suggesting that maybe something less Rambo would better serve our ultimate goal with the sheeple.
Sorry to make this a long one.......
