    St. Louis Today cites to's Mike Stollenwerk

    Openly carrying guns is in vogue


    Mike Stollenwerk, co-founder of, said gun rights advocates usually have three issues. They want the right to carry, the right to transfer ownership and the right to use their weapons for self-defense. But he and other advocates see open carry without requiring a permit as a practice courts have upheld for years based on the constitutional right to bear arms.

    "Open carry is the Second Amendment," Stollenwerk said.

    Stollenwerk said those who carry properly holstered handguns rarely receive much attention. "When people do notice, they disregard it or ask friendly questions like, 'Hey, do I need a permit to do that?'" he said.

    "In the end, even most concealed carriers want the right to choose open carry when it suits them and their circumstances, just like open carriers want the right to choose concealed carry sometimes."

    I think it was a fair article. Especially considering the Post-Dispatch is known to be 2A unfriendly.

    I don't see it as being "en vogue" (author misspelled it), as there being an increase in the perception of mainstream America that no matter how good our law enforcement system might be, they cannot keep us safe.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. OO-RAH!!! Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and other founding documents.

    As for President Trump, he's getting the job done.
