A recent press release issued by OpenCarry.org highlights last week’s pro-gun election results. Turns out open carry campaign pledges appear to run hand in hand with gubernatorial victories in 4 states: Florida, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Texas.
Open carry organizers are expecting success in at least two states, Oklahoma and Florida, in the near future. Perhaps this will set the stage for Congress to preempt the District of Columbia on gun control and restore gun carry rights in our Nation’s Capital.
All I can say is WOW!
‘‘Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.’’ Thomas Jefferson
Expecting victory in FL?
I'll believe it when I see it.
All I know is Florida needs Open carry. Lived there for 4 years. Always watchng over my shoulder before I got in or out of my vehicle, not wanting to "flash" my wepon to anyone who might call LE for intimidation or some other rediculous charge.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence ... From the hour the Pilgrims landed, to the present day, events, occurrences, and tendencies prove that to insure peace, security and happiness, the rifle and pistol are equally indispensable . . . The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that is good" - George Washington
