Interesting ... Thanks for sharing this article. I'll send it along to my contacts at Arizona Citizens Defense League. They are very active in "re-educating." His commentthat "people don't appreciate it, don't understand it" bears some truth but many, many folks who OC in Arizona (like myself) use it as an opportunity to educate the public. Possumboy is right on the money - more people should OC and we wouldn't have this problem. One thing I have noticed is that the stigma seems to be more acute in the larger metropolitan areas than they are out here in the more rural areas where I live. It has also been identified in Arizona that a big influence is the huge number of "foreigners" moving to AZ especially from California. Thesepeoplebring their liberal anti-gun sentiments with them and it dilutes the AZ population who grew up with and are used to open carry. That's why it is even more important that we all open carry at every opportunity. The fear is that this could very easilybecome a "use it or lose it" proposition.
