Jaws_Victim: So the pro gun enthusiasts have decided that during a rash of school and public shootings with semi automatics (And there was yet another school shooting today, a shotgun against a student in california.) The best thing that can be done is to walk around with visible Semi Automatics? They should be arrested for disturbing the peace.

Maybe walking around town with an ar-15 is not the best idea; but, there it is perfectly legal and they weren't hurting anything. How else do you suppose guns get from gun safes to shooting ranges.

/ here, it is perfectly legal for me to ride a horse down Main Street with a rifle in the rifle scabbard and a pistol on the saddle horn; not that I'd ever do that.

if that was walking down the street, i'd be a little freaked out too.


I wouldn't.
The weapons are in clear view, it would be easy to see if either of them decided to become a menace.
Statistically speaking you'd be better off if licensed people carried exposed rifles rather than concealed, unlicensed, handguns.
Practically speaking, it might maybe be a crime deterrent but carrying a rifle is inconvenient. I don't see it catching on, even with the militia minded.

Dimensio: HideAndGoFarkYourself: Not to mention that somewhere, somebody is dialing 911 with an actual emergency, and their help is being delayed because these two jackwagons want to walk around carrying AR-15's and wagging their dicks around.

A local police officer informed me that he prefers citizens to carry concealed for the specific reason that legally openly carried firearms may cause observers unfamiliar with the law to contact and thus waste the resources of emergency services. That explanation prompted me to obtain a holster that more effectively conceals my firearm when cycling, as until then I had worn a holster that was frequently exposed, inadvertently, when I cycled.


I wonder if, as a cyclist, open carry would decrease the potential that a car will road rage at you if they notice the gun.

meat0918: A gun shop owner I've dealt with in the past (he's an ass, so I don't shop there any longer), said you're an idiot if you open carry. You're just making yourself a target for a criminal that might want your gun or otherwise knows to take you out first.


My God, it's almost like he's admitting that the mere presence of guns can unnecessarily escalate a situation.

When I carried using a belt holster, it was attached near my right hip. Vehicles typically passed me on my left, and thus my firearm would have been out of sight were it visibly exposed.

I agree with you 100%.  The other thing that open carriers don't get is that by carrying concealed, but accessible, YOU can dictate when you take action, if you do at all.  I know people want to live in this fantasy land where a guy walks in to rob the bank, shows a gun, and the gun open carrying draws and kills him in an instant.  That's now how it generally works.  A person carrying concealed can choose the moment at which he wants to intervene, as opposed to the bank robber seeing the gun and pre-emptively capping him just because.

Guns DO NOT make a person brave, nor do they make a person impervious to the natural human aversion to killing another human being.  It's not as easy as many gun owners try to make it out to be.  I'd be willing to bet that the majority of gun owners wouldn't have the fortitude to go through with it until they felt their life was in imminent danger, at which point it's usually too late.

If you're carrying concealed and you realize at that pivotal moment that you don't have what it takes to end a human life, then you just go on with the program until you are left with absolutely no other choice.

KarmicDisaster: I wonder what the law would say if a CCW who felt threatened opened fire on them. Most of the laws are written very vaguely now, it you feel threatened, open fire! You know, there are a lot of things that you can do, like having sex, that aren't really appropriate in public.


Most CCWs are quite aware of what the local regs regarding open carry are.
 
2013-01-10 09:16:32 PM  

HideAndGoFarkYourself: I'm a very staunch supporter of the right to own firearms, whether they be for hunting, sport, self defense, or just because one wants to have them.  I don't even mind when people carry them, and carry them openly, so long as they're not doing it FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE of attracting attention to themselves. These people weren't carrying for protection, if they were, they'd be carrying a defensive weapon like a handgun.  They were carrying to create a scene and to get exactly what they got, a police response and a news story.  People like these actually, in my opinion, do more to hurt the gun lobby than help.

In any political fight, you've got the 20% that are die hard pro-whatever, and the 20% that are die hard con-whatever.  Then there's the remaining 60% who are going to vote based on how well the other side sells their position.  People like this, who generate negative publicity, who act in a manner designed only to create fear or panic, don't help their cause in the least.

Not to mention that somewhere, somebody is dialing 911 with an actual emergency, and their help is being delayed because these two jackwagons want to walk around carrying AR-15's and wagging their dicks around.


This is the kind of opinion I want to read! Very good point. I don't understand the motivations behind attention whores, so it is harder for me to see that is what they are doing. I think both sides need to chill out. Democrats are wasting huge percentages of political capital over this. It is a total waste, this is an issue equivalent to abortion as far as political capital and waste of energy are concerned. One of the few.

Please Democrats, we have people starving from unemployment, you are focusing on the wrong thing!!!

Mr. Fuzzypaws: No exactly a concealed handgun now is it.


ftfa - Officers said carrying firearms openly is legal in Oregon

If it's legal, then it's not a problem. The rifles were slung on their backs, which isn't exactly menacing, unless you're an idiot. Rifles carried in their hands would be a different story. .

Honestly, I think all states should allow open carry, people watch too much tv and are programmed to think that anyone not in uniform with a gun on them, and not even in their hands is a danger. It's part of the reason why the left will never be able to propose a tolerable solution to gun violence. For the most part, they're living in a state of fear that's disproportionate to reality. The gun control crowd needs to peel themselves away from the tv, and go hang out at a decent gun club, they'll likely find a very different crowd than the retarded toothless yokels they're portrayed as in the media.

One is wearing a camo head wrap that could be easily pulled up to hide his face and the other is wearing a t-shirt with the "don't tread on me" flag on it favored by ignorant but extremely angry Tea Party types. The only people who would wear these in public are unhinged idiots. And that's before you get to the weapons.

You're goddamned right I'd call the cops. These people look like they're more likely to use those guns to kill innocent people than they are to prevent others from killing innocent people.
