This one of those "you didn't think your cunning plan through all the way" scenarios, but really, is anyone shocked about that?

I suspect that some stupid people did not expect such an outcome.

Any action that causes Moms Demand Action to seem sane and reasonable is not an appropriate action.

What the Fark do you need to prove by carrying loaded shotguns and rifles into public restaurants? The potential of an accident is worse than going hunting.

Don't worry guys, we will all think of you as badasses anyway.

The 2nd amendment should also apply to the open carry of swords.

Wait, they open-carries long guns -- which is legal, but apparently kind of rare for obvious reasons -- because they want the right to open-carry handguns? WTF?

People who open carry long guns in cities for no good reason but attention whoring and "because I can" deserve public ridicule, it is our constitutional right to ridicule them. They are a disservice to every other gun owner and they scare people.

As gun nutty as I was brought up, you still did not bring a goddamn rifle to the dinner table. Unless you were cleaning it, that happened AFTER dinner.

I think part of the problem, and this applies to the 1st Amendment, too, is that there are a whole lot of people who are too dumb to grasp that a right doesn't mean an obligation

See, and this is why people who are all in favor of responsible gun ownership have trouble.  It's because you don't need a freaking rifle to go get your extra guacamole, but some people have to just prove something.  Look at me, I'm taking a long gun to Chipotle!  FOR THE CONSTITUTION!  I WANT SOME EXTRA SALSA WITH MY SECOND AMENDMENT!

And they wonder why everyone else rolls their eyes.

There's some truth to that, these people are trying to make a first amendment statement with their second amendment rights, but that statement simply is "we can do this". They aren't organizing against an oppressor or filling in for a non-existent police force in outlaw territory. They didn't just get back into town from calling coyotes all morning. They're just taking a gun that scares people to go grab a sh*tty burrito, for the hell of it. They're jerks.

Even relatively small caliber center fire rifles (such as the AR-15's 5.56mm) have a nasty tendency to over-penetrate and hit whatever is behind your actual target, especially at close range.

If you're carrying one around a populated area for "self-defense," it tells me you don't know what the fark the rifle you're carrying around is capable of.

Based on the photos circulating any attempt to use those guns would be thwarted by pie-slicked hands anyway.

I'm pretty sure the founding fathers, when drafting the Second Amendment, didn't intend to make citizen firearms legally mandatory.... but they sure intended it to be an obligation.  If you want to remain free, you maintain the ability to personally defend your property and family against all threats.  If you live in Portland or New York and want to abdicate your safety to the police, it's never been illegal, but it does go against the clear intention of America's founding document.

shallnotinfringe.us

Constitutionally, it is absolutely legal to take your firearms into a business and it is also your obligation to do so, because while there may be nobody planning to commit a crime there today, there definitely won't be if it's known that virtually every law abiding customer there is capable of defending themselves.  If you are unwilling to participate in that defense, consider yourself lucky you would be protected anyway.

Open carry seems like a great way to get guns into the hands of criminals.  Taking a gun from someone is trivial if they are alone and aren't expecting it.

Ah, but you'd keep it in a scabbard. Thus it's a concealed blade longer than some arbitrary local regulation and thus more illegal than walking around with an AR-15 slung over your shoulder.

Let me know when guns start providing defense against incoming bullets. Until then the best case is deterrence, not defense (and deterrence is a significantly more complicated concept to prove since it's psychological rather than physical and strongly on the actions of others).

And then you link to the constitution that says the opposite.

A well regulated militia is for the purpose of defending the country against other countries, or to challenge the government who violates the constitution.

Not for your stupid fantasy. Also, you're not in a well regulated millitia, so stop carrying a firearm dumbass.

You're not pretty sure of anything concerning the Founding Fathers.  No one is.  You know why?

Because the Founding Fathers had no frigging concept of things we take for granted today.  Like toilets, or the internet, or cars, or clean water, or McDonald's, or flying, or electricity, or a dedicated police force.  You expect the muses of our country to have the forethought of how to handle Joe Blow and his hard on for his M-16 while he carries it into a Starbucks?

Yes, this has become the interesting part of the debate. The right to bear arms versus the right of a property owner to control what happens on their property. The U.S. Constitution is supposed to restrain government excess, but it is easy to see why people don't understand that large chain businesses aren't the government, even though they in many ways effectively own our political system (that's a debate for a different day).

The Federal Government has no say what ever in this matter!!!
