An exceptionally well articulated presentation of the positives of OC. I hope that you will have the opportunity to present your perspective on open carry in Texas when the Texas CHL enhancement bill is considered during the upcoming legislative session.
Just as carrying a handgun in the public square equates somewhat to the operation of an automobile - 0penly carrying a.handgun in the public square equates to operation of a motorcycle. A (sane) person wouldn't operate a motorcycle on cruise-control. One's posture and presentation while operating a motorcycle is essential to survival. Physical abilities are a critical component of safety on a bike.
Again - I really like your presentation.
