I am not begrudging someone their legal right to carry concealed, I just find discomfort with someone who wants to strap a bandolier bullet belt and a holster on and go grab a coffee and think that's appropriate behavior. In this area, it is far outside societal norms, and therefor more likely to cause problems than solve them.
I see guys all the time with fanny packs or holsters, what's wrong with those? Why the need to waive it around and show it off (besides the obvious Freudian explanation)? In the rare case some whackadoo wants to shoot up a place, is it supposed to stop them? If I was said whackadoo, I'd just make sure I shot you first and then take your gun!
From opencarry.org's home page... I find parts of this horrifying... "Over the last 4 years, the open carry of handguns has become much more common and less controversial as their friends, neighbors and local law enforcement discover that open carry is legal and wholesome (WHOLESOME?!!? As in "healthy for mind and body?!!? I think not)". In fact a recent FBI report essentially concludes that "criminals don't open carry handguns." (WTF?!!? This is the most ridiculous fallacious argument I've ever heard. So... if you open carry, the police won't suspect you're a criminal? Or open carrying proves you're not a criminal? Criminals do carry concealed guns, so what does that prove? What exactly is their point?)
Anthropologist Charles Springwood sums it up nicely when he commented that open carriers are trying to "naturalize the presence of guns, which means that guns become ordinary, omnipresent, and expected. Over time, the gun becomes a symbol of ordinary personhood." (Oh...my...god. Really? That's what people want our country to become? A place where guns, a weapon meant only to take the life of another in a painful and horrifying to witness way, are everywhere and a symbol of normalcy?!!? As a gun owner, the stats are much higher that someone will be unintentionally shot with your gun rather than a criminal committing a crime against you or another. We had 30,000+ gun related deaths last year. How many do you think we'd have if EVERYONE carried a gun?!!?
OpenCarry.org believes that "a right unexercised, is a right lost," and increasingly gun owners are agreeing - it's time gun carry comes out of the closet in America!" (What is this, the Wild, Wild, West?!!? I was trying to see their side of this, but after reading their own propaganda, they are absolutely a bunch of whackadoos)
