    NRA

    So just read an article on the blaze that the NRA is saying that the group open carry protests are counterproductive and just plain weird. That it is turning companies against gun owners, because it scares people and inevitably creates bad press.

    I agree with those comments made by the NRA.

    When you take a protest to a place of business and inadvertently interrupt their day, it's obvious that the said business will not favor you.

    I'm all for protesting and standing up for our rights. However, there is a time and place for that. Better venue selection would be prudent.

    Maybe, but in my state you can and do see both oc and cc carry. Not a big thing out here.

    There's another one on guns.com that has the TX OC group's comments relating to the NRA not supporting them. They claim "the whole world" is aware of the change in their methods and that they are posting pictures of their members cutting up their NRA lifetime membership cards. Sound like a bunch of whiners.

    TX OC is not helping anyone's cause.

    These idiots OC'ing rifles, "just because we can", to try to push legislation for OC of pistols is the equivalent to operating a whole tank battalion down main street "just because we can" to try to push for legislation to OC rifles.
    Its spookin' the sheeple.
    Don't do it.

    If something is legal, AND prudent, then by all means.
    Carrying rifles through a town, big or small, is just reaffirming the notion to all that gun people are gun nuts.
    That is counterproductive.

    IMHO they are a bunch of panty-sniffing toothless wonders without a triple digit IQ amongst any of them, pursuing a counterproductive strategy of dubious distinction embarrassing anyone that owns a gun regardless of how it might be used. Although I try to avoid stereotyping as much as possible, the pictures I've seen and the arguments made by the group make me shudder as I try to dispel the first, second, and third impressions. If I were trying to create a parody for South Park I couldn't have designed more compelling persona to feed to cynicism and humor.

    All said and done, it sets us back, say, two or three million IQ Points and 14 bazillion pounds of hard earned credibility.

    They disgrace us, they disgrace their parents, their state, and their alma maters, if they have any.

What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

    Do you all know who is the president of Open Carry Texas?
    C.J. Grisham.
    Explains a lot I think.

    The NRA made me proud. And who cares if they cut up their cards - they've already paid their lifetime dues.

    I am an NRA supporter and agree. To win a war you must choose your battles. If you want to be mainstream you have to be smart.
