    Radio station anti-gun bait backfires

    A member of http://www.opencarrycolorado.com/forums/ found his picture on a Colorado Springs radio station's Facebook page. It appears the radio station was trying to incite people to scream about how dangerous he was around kids. About 95% of the 82,000 comments (and counting) have been in favor of him OCing.

    82,000 Facebook comments on an insignificant photo! So many people waste time on Facebook... They are obsessed, but not in a good way like me! (I profitably spend time on pro-gun websites.)

    I didn't see 82, 000 comments, but I left mine.

    Citizen observes law-abiding citizen sitting at counter eating burger ( or whatever) with handgun secured in retention holster.

    Does citizen immeditely experience "alarm", hysteria, extreme helplessness ? Guess not.

    I don't see a mad crowd rushing for the exits. Screaming, and yelling in hysterical shock at the site of an armed citizen.

    Citizen " should COVER UP ". WHY>>>>>? So the criminals in our midst won't be made uncomfortable ?

    Sighhhhhhhhhhhhh......

    I responded also. They are catching a lot of heat for their apparent stance against firearms carry.

    I saw nothing fearful about the carabiner with keys on it.

    Radio station anti-gun bait backfires

    2 comments posted, even one from a friend from out of state! I especially like all the comments made about leaving for another burger stand. Cool. More fries for me! We need more folks like this. What about starting a page on Facebook that shows folks OC'ing? Oh the bleeding hearts will love it!!

    Had to throw in my opinion....
    Lifetime member, Gun Owners of America (http://gunowners.org/)
    Lifetime member, Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership (http://jpfo.org/)
    Member, Fraternal Order of Eagles since 8/02 (http://www.foe.com/)

    Registering gun owners to prevent crime, is like registering Jews to prevent a HOLOCAUST.

    I am not a lawyer in real life, or in play life. So anything I say is for debate and discussion only.

    Most of those comments are pretty awesome, and my faith in Humanity is bolstered a little bit today because of it. Thanks for sharing.
