This makes no sense:
(edited for clarity)"Maybe once it becomes more commonplace to see open carry you might see more"
When more people do it, then more people will do it & you'll see it more.
If you are concerned about someone carrying openly you can call police and they will come and check it out.
How about pointing out the obvious - criminals don't carry openly because they don't want any attention they can possibly avoid? (Or, gee, doing a little research to support your article, & finding out that the other states with OC don't have problems with the LACs. Sheep, yes, anti-rights LEO, yes.)
