    People identifying themselves as open carry supporters or identifying themselves with the internet site forum.opencarry.org often speak rather expansively painting a blurry 'cartoon' picture with their broad brush. They DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME! We may agree on the objective but, more often than not, disagree on the means, the language and the principles.

    The most I usually get is people looking at me. Let me emphasize usually. I've only had one bad experience.
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    If you go into a store, with a gun, and rob it, you have forfeited your right to not get shot - Joe Deters, Hamilton County (Cincinnati) Prosecutor

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    Looks like a teaser for the actual article. He says "I wrote a story for Sunday’s paper. The story also has photos and a video. Check out Sunday’s Gazette and Gazettextra.com."
