    Trolls are good for traffic, as exemplified by this particular thread. Nearly 200 posts in, and you are still looking for a game.

    The way I look at it, if you're so openly against it there should be some 'yes' votes coming in - after all, you do provide fuel for the anti-gun groups (you do realize that organizations like the Brady Campaign read these forums, right). If even gun owners speak out against open carry it won't be long until your quotes are put to the test, if they aren't already.

    So please, take a moment if you will and answer honestly - I'm genuinely curious, and this is an anonymous poll.
    My opinion is that of what is good for another may not be good for me. I would be against such a law banning open carry. However, I prefer the element of surprise and therefore cc instead. I personally am against a law that says we have to have permit at all. I believe such a law flies directly in the face of the 2nd Amendment.

    That kind of implies OC'ers wanted responses. Sorry if you don't like what you hear.
    Darn! I forgot about that! Carry on.

    We have had open carry in my state for years! We just got the conceal carry 4 months ago!. While I did not open carry, I did support it and those who choose to.

    I support those who want to OC for good reason, but I less support those trying to OC to make a statement.

    IMHO, some in the OC community (say 10%), are less 2A, and more 1A about carrying. They are making a statement, and are want attention. Half of that 10% are great leaders. I open carry from time to time, when walking. It is more of a poor attempt to CC because I'm more focused on comfort and access. To sum up my opinion (so just a hunch, but not proven fact), 50% of those who are in your face concerning OC, I support, because it is a right they are defending and I reap the benifit of indirectly. The other 50% are seeking personal satisfaction beyond just fighting for a right. Frankly a slight authority issue. They more likely hinder the right more than strengthen it. So say 5% who OC are great leaders, 5% are just pointless and hinder the right, 30% are supporters, 50% just perfer to OC vs CC, and the next 10% are like me, who OC from time to time.


    If as many people OC a firearm as often as people OC a cell phone, I may rethink my point of view. Not saying I would be against OC in that situation, just that I would have to rethink.
