I'm still torn as to whether open carry efforts like this will help or hurt acceptance in Wisconsin.
This is 25 miles from a previous open carry incident I posted about last month. That thread is: Article: [Wisconsin's] open carry law should be repealed
Every day without a negligent discharge is a good day.
If they just had sidearms on their hips, I'd say it would be helpful, but the long guns likely hurt more than help. This isn't Texas, Montana, Utah, or Alaska where the culture is more comfortable with open long guns in public. We just got concealed carry a little less than 2 years ago. We were 49 of 50 to get in on the party. You can't go from 0 to 100 in that short of time, people don't handle sudden change shock as well as we'd like. Just because they csn doesn't mean they should and whether ee like it or not, more people will view this as something nutty because we haven't had the time to bring them along the path of fearing guns due to lack of knowledge to understanding how guns work and why people carry for their own protection.

I like the caption under the photo that says "Two men carry what they said were loaded rifles...". One is, of course, carrying a shotgun.
Reminds me of my step-father calling my brother-in-law from a gun store for advice "I'm looking at a rifle...it's a uh...12 gauge rifle..."
