    I wouldn't worry about him too much. He will probably shoot himself by accident while showing off his mad quick draw skills. I imagine he spends alot more time at keggers than he does at the range.

    Very little negative impact.

    I don’t know how much damage these guys are doing to the cause. I suspect it is pretty small.
    Yes – unsafe handling, foolish statements, baiting, etc.
    Here’s the BUT – looking at these guys from a sheeple perspective
    - Sheeple don’t realize the unsafe gun handling practices, that’s what they see in the movies – so its probably just fine.
    - Sheeple don’t know its unsafe/unwise to carry w/o a proper holster.
    - Many Sheeple probably admire them for taking a stand against crime.
    - Most Sheeple are not aware of the potential civil & criminal issues that follow a SD shooting. So its not an issue to them.

    The general public will not share most of the issues educated gun owners have with these guys. The sheeple either don’t like guns or are fine with them. “Small stuff” like safe handling and baiting are issues they will probably not notice.

    I give these guys the following grades.
    A for guts.
    F for safety & gun handling.
    C for public opinion impact.

    What if they actually shoot someone (a BG).
    1- They will most likely have a large mess to deal with, considering their training (or lack of), attitudes and public statements.
    2- Public opinion won’t be affected. There are hundreds of (good) reported SD shootings each year and it does not seem to sway public opinion much.

    If they shoot someone the the prosecutor WILL make an issue of the fact that they were out HUNTING human beings, with the express intent and desire to shoot/kill them. The media than presents the public with legally armed with concealed weapons permit they are convicted of hunting down and killing John Boy the devote church member who was just beginning to turn his life around. No it will not play wel. With Seattle's ultra liberal media and voting public it is a disaster in the making
    Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution

    Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
