No one's asking, or demanding, you open carry a gun. But when people who supposedly believe in the 2A start making exceptions, our whole foundation falls apart. That's like people who support the 1A, except for: pornography, conservative talk shows, gay comedy, and gangsta rap. They don't support free speech at all. They only support things that fall in line with their way of thinking. That way of thinking is beyond liberal; it's borderline fascist.
In my opinion, I'd rather know who was armed. Criminals don't open carry.
