    allnet.org cites to OpenCarry.org, 'social networking portal for open carry movement'

    The Open Carry Library, by Mary Beth Chappell Lyles

    A “no guns” policy, which, granted, might not effectively stop an armed assailant in the vein of the Santa Monica shooter (absent a metal detector or X-ray machine) but would prevent adverse reactions to casually carried firearms, might seem like a common sense measure or a library to enact in the cause of patron comfort. However, open carry laws several states, some of them recently enacted, and the deliberately increased visibility and activity of proponents of the open carry movement
    challenge the ability of libraries to control the presence of guns within their walls.

    The Movement

    So what exactly is the Open Carry Movement? According to the website OpenCarry.org, the self-described “social networking portal for the open carry movement,” which proclaims the motto “a right unexercised is a right lost,” this movement works to protect
    the “right to openly carry properly holstered handguns in daily American life.” OpenCarry.org references anthropologist Charles Springwood, quoting “open carriers are trying to ‘naturalize the presence of guns, which means that guns become ordinary,
    omnipresent, and expected. Over time, the gun becomes a symbol of ordinary personhood.’” Another group, Georgia Carry, states through its website that the Citizens of Georgia and the United States have the right to own and carry the firearm of their choice for any reason other than to commit a crime.”

    A[n] open carry license is a scheme devised by the government to fool you into believing that you have to pay for a right. Some poor souls are actually excited about it.

    Most gun shops in your area offer the state-required training for the carry permit, and will provide the application and instructions for begging the government for their permission, which they do give to those who "qualify." Effective January, the same carry permit that used to require the firearm to be carried concealed will also allow it to be carried openly.

    Having read the whole piece, it would appear that the biggest issue they have is " patron comfort", while acknowledging that they could not, in the event of someone violating a no guns policy, provide protection for their patrons. In their mind, comfort is more important than safety, which goes to show how wrong headed their mindset is.
