Open Carry with a BIG twist.
It is said, rightly in my opinion, that a handgun is just a way to get to your rifle. Your rifle is your best option in most defensive scenarios.
This isn't Israel, we can't walk about on the beach or to the shops with a rifle slung over one shoulder, we don't have that luxury.
Suspend belief a moment though, imagine if we could. If the law was changed so that we had a choice of carrying a handgun or a rifle for personal defense.
Obviously the rifle would necessitate open carry, some of us do not like open carry handguns due to the likelihood of being targeted by a BG for theft or elimination.
But if you were carrying a rifle would that be any different?
If it were normal to pass 10 or 20 people in the mall carrying rifles, would you feel safer?
I lived in Israel, I was fine with the amount of openly displayed guns there. And believe me, there are some places in this country that could benefit from some openly displayed firearms.
