    Not your typical media fear mongering. More about the divide within the RKBA community than anything else, and overall I think it's a good article.

    I especially like how it ends,


    Other businesses have taken a different tack — and are embracing the movement.

    The East Coast Pizza Bar and Grill in Walnut Creek, Calif., about 25 miles east of San Francisco, invited gun owners to host open carry meet-ups. At least 70 people attended one last Sunday, many carrying firearms, said the owner, Jessie Grunner, 30. And over a dozen returned on Thursday night for more.

    “Frankly, I wasn’t sure how I would feel in that type of situation, and it really turned out to be a total nonissue,” Ms. Grunner said.

    “The families were great,” she said. “These were very gracious people.” The fact that customers wore sidearms, she said, “just faded into the background.”

    In case you haven't seen it, open carry and Starbucks was mentioned on Colbert Report a few days back: http://www.colbertnation.com/the-col...cs---starbucks

    Open carry bit starts at around 2:25

    I did see that. Although I think the bit fell flat. Maybe that's just because I always cringe when a show that I like expresses views completely opposite of mine.

    But on the bright side, when a story hit's Comedy Central, you know it's become big national news.
