The more we open carry, the less people will think guns cause murders.
Same for arabs walking around in turbans. After 9/11, most people saw a guy with a turban and freaked out, now its perfectly normal and we accept the ignorance we once all posessed on arabs wearing turbans, you know why? Because arabs continued to walk around in their turbans, and guess what, bombs werent going off!! If they decided to not wear them, then the American public would believe what they see in terrorist movies.
Same goes for guns, the more we show to the American public.. "look, hey, I have a gun on my hip.. see? no one is dieing, little children arent running around crying, wild west shoot outs arent taking place, school shootouts arent taking place because of me... in fact, if some murderer walked up to us right now, we would all be safer because of this defensive tool on my hip"
Case and point.
