    Actually I not so sure it does.

    It makes the point that there are some that suffer from severe hoplophobia and perhaps some here will think that is funny, but to the ones with the paranoia it is very real.

    Really though don't you think there is less and less of this extreme reaction as people become accustomed to honest, law abiding OCers.

    I don't laugh at such people. I go out of my way to defuse their fears. I smile (a lot) nod pleasantly or engage them in small, pleasant chit-chat. After seeing me in or around several times, they frequently come up and ask me questions = a golden opportunity to educate in a friendly manner.

    That an the OCer is the stereotype big bellied, white dude, wearing cowboy boots, with chin whiskers....Ok all that's all right, even the ball cap worn backwards which I despise.

    The most egregious part of the depiction is his arms folded over his chest, indicating, as any student of psychology will tell you, a closed mind - not receptive.

    OC cartoon sums it up

    This is just satire. No, I have not had any negative encounters. I liked the cartoon. It's a cartoon. Take it for what you will. I greet everyone with a smile on my face and I am especially on my best behavior when open carrying.

    I wasn't attacking you personally. I was sharing what I saw in the drawing. Diiferent people will see different things.

    Even granny had her place - more and more women seem to be involved in crime these days.

    The little kid should have wide eyes, a smile, and a though bubble saying, "Cool!" Hoplophobia is learned.

    Thanks for posting. Enjoyed it.

    Possibly with the thought "Are you a cowboy?" like I was asked once by a youngin of about 5 or 6.

    I think it's pretty funny. I have a hard time imagining how it would come across if I wasn't the way I am, though. I mean, if I wasn't already solidly in support of open carry. I'm not sure I'd really "get it" Then again, I'd probably figure it out in a minute or two

    "My grandson would like to know, are you a cowboy or a cop?"

    One of my favorite OC interactions.

    Why does this nitwit "cartoonist" depict a seasoned citizen as holding some nefarious intent.

    I was asked that once too, I said "No, I am an Indian"....it led to a great conversation.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    He didn't. He depicted a seasoned citizen holding an intent on getting a donut. :P The sheeple saw him as having nefarious intentions.

    Which is why this cartoon fails in real life people are unconcerned with OC.
