    Can we stop talking about open carry please?



    http://gunnuts.net/2012/06/05/can-we-stop-talking-about-open-carry-please/


    .......
    To the open carry advocates: stop getting butthurt all over the internet when someone expresses their opinion of open carry. To the people against open carry: stop getting butthurt all over the internet when someone open carries. Just shut up and carry your damn guns, and donít be a dick. Itís simple.

    Just goes to prove that an armed society is a polite society. If you get on an anti gunners site and express an opinion they dont agree with (like https://www.facebook.com/bradycampaign and https://www.facebook.com/washingtonceasefire) they will ban you from posting and delete all your posts. I highly doubt that would happen on any of the 2nd amendment sites if they were to start commenting on their views. I am sure we would rationally discuss the reasons why we carry in a civilized manner.

    If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    What are these professed 'gun nuts' afraid of? It is just words, ideas and the exercise of a right....
    If they don't want to talk about it, that is there right. I will continue to talk about open carry, it is my right.

    I carry openly about 15% of the time. I stealth carry about 5% of the time. The other 80% of the time I usually wear a jacket of some kind that covers most but not all of my side arm and holster. Usually you can see the bottom inch; what my friend refers to as "unsuccessful concealed carry." My main concern is to have an available means to put up a good fight when BGs try to mess up my life.

    No matter how you carry, it's ok with me. Just do it safely.
    What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

    I believe in freedom, Mr. Lipwig. Not many people do, although they will, of course, protest otherwise. And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based.

    The freedom to succeed goes hand in hand with the freedom to fail. - Going Postal, Terry Pratchett

    Holy Cow Batman! I just posted a few on WACeasefire and Brady tonight. My 3 posts on WACeasefire are gone within 3 hours, I wasn't harsh on them or anything, just pointing out how their studies that they cite were "skewed". They let MassiveDesignDan keep his posts up though... Wonder what he does that's so special he can keep his anti-ceasefire posts up on their page?

    Oh well, I care so much that I don't even have a Facebook account, used my Fiance's....

    Maybe he has pictures of Ralph Fascitelli molesting some of the animals at the Woodland Park Zoo

    Well said Levi.

    I carry everyday everywhere, for a long time I made sure there was no doubt I was OC now I just carry if it shows it shows if it doesn't it doesn't. It shows more often than not and I am more aware of my surroundings when I am OC but that is about the extent of it.

    I occationally cover to keep the rain off...yes it does rain on the dry side...almost a inch in the last 48 hours. 1/2 mile up to the mail box, and I don't want to be cold, or wet, so I'll wear a jacket. I guess that will be CC.

    I don't care that people CC, or not. I just want to be left alone to do what is legal, comfortable and safe.

    Oh, funny: Last month oldest daughter and husband were out here from TX...we went to dinner...he never said a word, just grinned...(he's originally from OR)

    Um, the laughing smiley generally refers to the sarcasm intended by the poster... Relax.
