When in a gunfight, bring a gun. Bring a friend with a gun. Bring ALL your friends with guns. And for this guy, bring guns for all your friends!

As much as I appreciate his zeal for his support of the 2A you can go a little overboard on how many weapons you carry. This is the same guy who walks all over NH challenging the various LEO's in the various towns & cities. I applaud his effort in support of the 2A but to wear as much weapons as he wore to that event is a bit much if you ask me. Still, he is within his rights to do so! More power to him.

I'm with both Resupt and QK on this one.
A wise person presents themselves within the norms of dress and custom. If open carry is legal and customary and typically folks carry ONE, and maybe a BUG concealed, then doing more will make you look like you are not entirely there.
Consequences will inevitably follow, right or wrong, as you will stand out and be the subject of inquiry by Johny Law, for good reason, and sometimes those friendly encounters go south too quickly for the wrong reasons--as seen in other thread here too frequently.

I think the guy was the geek back in high school that was picked on. and now that he is older he wants people to respect him. but i would honestly just laugh and ask him if he was serious.
What's wrong with that? That is how I walk out my door everyday.

There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
It was intended that I would over-do it for the festival. I do however wish I wasn't been video tapped the SECOND time (ever) that I tried to draw the sword. The next day I was much more smooth with the drawing of the sword, and pretty close to usable.
Thanks to the wonderful show of support on here, I will attempted to over do it MUCH more at the Live Free or Die Festival.
I think he's fine, as long as he doesn't fall out of a boat!
