The number of shootings in the schools and streets of America has done little to dampen the enthusiasm of thousands to assert their Second Amendment rights.
What is so hard to understand about this concept:
The reason there are shootings in schools is because the criminals know they're safe there.
In places that allow teachers to carry in school, there aren't shootings.
Shootings on the streets are mostly done by criminals, to criminals.
Once in a while they attack a citizen, & once in a while the intended victim is able to stop them.
Wow... who have they been talking to?For some in the Open Carry movement, it is about more than security. It is about forming a militia, defending themselves from government tyranny and even organizing an insurgency.
If that's the way people see us, no wonder the anti's have their knickers in a knot.
Then again, this is from a controlled part of the world...
I'll go along with the defense part, as that's the ultimate extension of the 2A.
But the militia is defined by law.
And I don't think there'd be much overlap between the average law-abiding OCer & those looking to overthrow the gov't violently.
Sure as heck not what I'm here for.
