    You may have misinterpreted what I meant. My bad.

    By "Let's keep it that way." I meant I'd like to keep the people I run into in the woods feeling comfortable and relaxed about OC. I didn't mean to imply anything about keeping people in towns and cities feeling nervous or apprehensive about OC. That would not be my intention.

    After looking up the definition of "hectoring" (learning a new word today. thanks) I'm inclined to believe it is gun owners and carriers who have been intimidated and bullied by the anti gunners and those in the gun community who join them in insulting and ridiculing anyone who dares exercise the right to bear arms in a way they disagree with.

    Why would anyone want to walk around in public and have people rubber neck at you all day?
    Walking around in public with a rifle will never be normal and accepted....Stories like this and others prove exactly that.
    Rather a law is broken or not....When people stare at me too long i get paranoid and think i may have a booger hanging out my nose.

    That's what many gun owners in Michigan said about open carrying a pistol when those open carriers were arrested.

    Plenty of them around. I have come to understand a person's true beliefs come after the word... "but". Especially when it comes to "I support the right to bear arms but...."

    As I said in one of other threads, if you're going to be the 2A Evangelist, be Ghandi. Don't be the Westboro Baptist Church.

    I liken it to flying the flag upside down or even burning it for that matter. The signal you're trying to send and the signal being received have a pretty high bit error rate.

    You have the right do it. We think you're a tool but we support your right to be a tool.

    I don't particularly care for open carry but if that's what floats your whistle have at it I don't really care.

    But don't go burning flags and expecting the rest of our community to flock to your cause and don't be surprised when your virtue signaling on the forum alienates the majority of the group.

    I won't support any legislation that tries to limit open carry BUT I won't go cheering on someone that can't even be bothered to look up their local laws before acting out their shenanigans.


    Also, in reading the news pieces on this, it was an AR15 PISTOL and if the guy has a carryy permit he should be able to beat the charge.

    Thatís nuts! If the only mission is to make acceptable the carrying of rifles in public, then the gameís already over. No amount of selling, much less forcing upon them, the acceptability of open carry of rifles will convince folks who are opposed to it. The very opposite is far more likely to occur.

    Interesting perspective coming from an Administrator of an internet forum concerned with gun rights that reaches a large number within the gun community.

    But this forum is really private property and the owner's have the private property right to have whatever perspective they wish and to have their representatives express that perspective.

    And when I joined this forum I agreed to abide by the rules the owner's of this private property have concerning what is allowed to be expressed. Much like private property business owners have the right to have rules about whether guns are allowed, or not allowed, to be carried on/in that private property. And as long as I wish to frequent this private property forum I will abide by the owner's rules just as I abide by any private property businesses rules about carrying guns (I won't sneak my gun in thinking it's OK to disrespect the owner's property rights because concealed means I won't get caught) regardless of my opinion of businesses that ban guns or my perspective concerning folks on forums who say they support the right to bear arms yet disparage, insult, indulge in name calling, and ridicule anyone who dares exercise that right in a way they don't agree with.

    It really is all about rights. Including the rights we personally might agree with yet disagree with how those rights are exercised.
