    Oh please wont open carry just go away. Don't these idiots realize that they do far more harm then good? It's hard enough being a gun owner sometimes but then we have this idiot and others like him who make us all look bad it gets even worse.
    This show is awesome, wrapped in supercool and smothered in bitchin. The only way it could be cooler is if he was riding a unicorn or something.

      Why should open carry go away? Why should any legal activity that isn't harming anyone go away? All that has to happen is for everybody to stop getting their panties in a bunch when they see a gun and it becomes a non-issue. It has already happened here.

        And you really think guys like him are the best candidates to lead the charge for our rights?

        I am really starting to believe that all of these open carry "look at me" types are really just anti-2nd people trying to bring even more gun control into this world.

        And its working....

          Here's my opinion on it:
          The reporters dramatized it a little much.
          The guy was an idiot for making those comments about shooting the police and not taking care of his traffic cases.
          All though I have yet to open carry I don't think it is a bad thing. I have even seen a few open carry with their family here at the Walmart. Nobody else appeared to notice or care. No I would not want an idiot like that representing anything to do with 2A rights.

            Which will never happen in certain areas of the country.....not where they see ANYONE with a weapon as a threat....including uniformed LEOs.....

            There are areas that many of the people are spoon fed from birth the notion that firearms are some sort of evil black magic.....and absolutely nothing will ever change their viewpoint.

              And do you really think that if open carry were legal in California or New York or Illinois, gangbangers who did not yet have a felony conviction would not terrorize residents and the police even more? And do you think cops would be safer?

              California, New York and Illinois are not Alaska. Forty years ago, open carry was legal in California. Then the Black Panthers started surrounding cops on traffic stops, and walked into the State Capitol building carrying shotguns. Although what they did was legal at the time, I would not say that they were not harming anyone.

                    Being intimidated is a form of emotional harm that causes people not to go about their normal activities because of fear for their safety.

                          But DAL, I'm not intimidated by an aircraft carrier in the hands of responsible US Military personnel, as long as I'm not doing anything wrong.. I'm not intimidated when I'm driving my motorcycle on a highway full of 18 wheelers and SUVs as long as people are driving responsibly. Open carry is not the same thing as brandishing.

                            I was checking out cop watch and discovered the subject of this thread is on there. His user name is Maxima.

                            Substitute the "********" with cop watch, with out any spaces in the url.
