I'm purty darn Liberal. If you have a legally owned gun, that is registered and you have had proper training, then you should be able to open carry. Out in the country, in your own yard, in your car, at the range, when you are hunting, or at a gun show or other gun related event. If you carry it into a mall, a farmers market, or down main street, where the sole effect is to shock and frighten people, then you get arrested for disturbing the peace. The 2nd amendment doesn't give you the right to be an attention  whore asshat.

I thought her 15 minutes of liberal fame was over.

It's Texas. If people had their way there it would he required for one to carry a gun in public.

It surprises people that demand purity on stances if you're going to be a liberal hero. Same thing that happens to Teabaggers who differ on some issues.

Heh.

You don't have to be a conservative to support an individual right to keep and bear arms.  In fact, there isn't really anything about that right that goes against any fundamental, classically liberal ideas.

Only if she supports gun ownership as an extension of a woman's right to shoot an unwanted fetus.

Put this libbie lib socialist down for a hearty "meh" as well.

I'm for some restrictions on guns, mainly that I think they should be treated like cars.

But open carry? Seems like a pretty basic right to me.
 
2014-02-06 08:29:39 AM  
In my mind, I expect Texas to have Texas-style gun laws. It always weirds me out a little when I hear what their laws actually are. I expect Texas, of all places, to be all about open-carry. Hell, I wouldn't be surprised for constitutional carry. But the tight-ass laws just don't fit.

I agree. I'm 'a liberal' and own a few guns. And when I can, I'd like a few more. It doesn't seem right that I live in Arizona and don't own a 30 30. It just doesn't.

samesies except the idea of carrying a loaded gun outside of my house on my person is literally laughable to me
 
2014-02-06 08:56:01 AM  
As the liberalist libtard that ever libbed, I am more comfortable with open carry over concealed.  Open carry show you who the small-penissed paranoid morons are whereas concealed carry conceals the small penises.

Why is it that if you are for the second amendment you are automatically a right winger, I am a definite left winger and and have enough firepower to take out any threat from up to 500 yards away to right in my face.

(I would have a nuke if I could get away with it.)

This - if someone is qualified to carry legally, then whether they carry openly or concealed should be at their discretion.
And I don't think there is anything in the law that attempts to override owners controlling whether guns may be brought into private space.

2014-02-06 09:12:37 AM  
Personally I've always been for open carrying.  A lot of my more conservative friends always make the case that guns deter crime ("an armed society is a polite society") -- if so, why not carry your gun openly?

In fact I thought the more contentious debate has always been about concealed carrying -- isn't that why a lot of states require licenses for that?

xanadian: Uh. She's Texan. Her open-carry stance surprises people??


I have been accused of being a "bagger" or a "teabagger" because I opposed a proposal to ban .50 caliber rifles and to confiscate all such rifles currently owned by civilians, despite my advocacy of same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization, health care reform, legal abortion and access to birth control, an appropriately progressive tax rate (including increases on capital gains taxes), a higher minimum wage and the teaching of evolution in public schools (to the exclusion of religious claims).

To some irrational individuals, not advocating complete civilian disarmament is itself an indicator of being a hardcore Tea Partier, regardless of any other held position.

One of the lesser mentioned benefits of open carry is that it lets me identify quickly which people have decided that they're willing to take a human life.

Muta: As the liberalist libtard that ever libbed, I am more comfortable with open carry over concealed.  Open carry show you who the small-penissed paranoid morons are whereas concealed carry conceals the small penises.


Your attempt to introduce the subject of male genitalia into the discussion is entirely inappropriate. While you may be obsessed with the subject, attempting to shift an irrelevant conversation to that subject is rude.

SomeoneDumb: One of the lesser mentioned benefits of open carry is that it lets me identify quickly which people have decided that they're willing to take a human life.


I assume that anyone is willing to take a life if their life is on the line.

I don't open carry, but if I am threatened with great bodily harm it's a sure bet I'm going to try my best to make sure that doesn't happen, even if it results in the loss of life for the perp.

I assume that you never lock your doors on your house or vehicle. You also have a sign in your front yard proclaiming that fact and that you are brave enough to say that you are not afraid of anything. Because anything short of that would be pure unadulterated cowardice.

Honestly we should all just get free t-shirts or large buttons that we can carry, maybe of different colors and phrases to let you know how crazy/dangerous the person actually is.  Some with "Crazy basement dweller with paranoia" in red and others with "Willing to kill you for a Klondike Bar" in white for instance.

Because you cannot know if an individual who attempts to rob you is merely trying to acquire funds to feed a starving family, I have been informed that your willingness to use deadly force against such an individual establishes you as being a sociopath.

Yeah, open carry is not a big deal.

I can sort of see the argument, that even if you have open carry, some places ought to be off limits. I lived in AZ for a while, and I believe they had little gun lockers in most of the public buildings. I thought it was hysterical. Then again, I did see a douche bag (and really he was, socks with sandals, wearing a beret with a "I kill terrorists" t-shirt) carrying a 9mm in a holster at the local Ralphs. I remember thinking to myself, "Dude, the only thing you kill is ladies sex drives."

I think my of my arugula eating libby libtard friends and I are more concerned with making sure that background checks and registrations get done, and probably tightening up background checks. I don't care if a sane(!!) law abiding person has a gun. I mean, really, its when the whackjobs and criminals have guns when it's a problem. Solve that and I wouldn't give a fark how many guns you have and if you want to spend all your social security check on ammo. Go for it.
 
2014-02-06 09:21:40 AM  
And yet the left isn't fleeing from her.  Which really just shows that the right-wing's "thar gunna take mah metal peenus away!!!" hysteria about the left is just more right-wing bullshiat.
