1) L.U.C.C. is not 'open carry' and as such cannot be considered a redux of said activity. It is a legal alternative to open or licensed carry.
2) Most flap holsters are not fully enclosed or considered secure.
3) I personally dont take issue if one has some beef with an alleged rapist or the fact that one wants to exersize their right to free speech, but the intermingling of the two with gun activism AND getting dressed up in an army costume is a freaking grab bag of horrendously bad planning in the public relations department.
By having so many non-interlocking agendas you have unwittingly confirmed the stereotypes that people assume are true because the media tells them this is what gun owners look like and the kinds of things that they all do.
I would suggest strongly that you revisit your strategy making process and whittle your activity and message to ONE simple-to-understand thing- because the potpourri of guns, cameras, bulletproof vest, helmet, and this stake out for an alleged rapist topped off with signs emblazoned with internet meme is damaging to responsible and reasonable gun owners. I do not believe anyone dressed like a paint ball commando can be taken seriously and the fact that people are alarmed at this demonstration should not be surprising. I may be wasting my time in making this suggestion, but for those who intend on instigating media contact with any connection to the gun rights agenda, it is absolutely necessary to dress the part of a reasonable person in business attire. Suit, tie, appropriate shoes. Anything else is a economy pack of stupid our unique political climate.
