    A Canadians perspective on Open Carry!

    http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/201...ut-open-carry/

    Open Carry a BAD IDEA! However the author makes a great point of why handguns are not the best option for self defense! An anti unknowingly supporting fireams!

    Thanks for posting. I enjoyed reading these.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436

    Is the TTAG site for or against gun control? I've never heard of them before. I haven't been able to read the articles yet since I'm at work.

    Thanks,

    The main takeaway: concealed carry is becoming a non-issue. Blood is not flowing in the streets from concealed carriers gone wild. So . . . nothing. Might as well let people—average folk—buy and carry guns.

    It’s an important distinction. The increasing normalization of concealed carry isn’t about the [debatable] upside: lower crime rates and lives saved. It’s about the lack of a downside: no OK Corrals. The fact that the “debate” has moved from questions about concealed carry to a discussion about open carry reveals the pro-carry temper of the times—at least in states that have accepted armed citizens.

    It’s no surprise that the same fantasy issues that bedeviled the concealed carry movement are now attached to open carry. Simply put, there are no new arguments to be made.
    Agree.

    Well remember that she can read these also, oh and Canada is an extridition country, so don't hide from her there! Besides there are far warmer places to seek wife refuge!
