1. Yes!! The normalization of openly carried firearms in daily life.
2. Don't do that. We do not advocate or endorse breaking the law. Work within the system in order to own it.
3. We all open carry. It does NOT make you a target. You will avoid conflict by Open Carrying. your "element of surprise" is a fallacy kept alive by odd uninformed people.
Open carry your firearm. And Welcome to OCDO.
