I was talking to someone about this issue of open carry and they said 'well, I guess I could stand on the street corner in a speedo and not be arrested---but why do it? It just isn't the thing to do in public'. It's just become a cultural taboo and I guess the only way to break the cycle is for more of us to carry open. What's odd is that there are a number of events around Carson City and Virginia city where lots of folks from the gunfighter clubs are walking around with the old Colt 45's. That doesn't bother folks, but a modern firearm being carried seems too andI sure can't see the difference.
