I am all for open carry. I would do it myself in the situation warranted it. It’s not for ME, generally, but I’m not gonna say YOU can’t do it.
But why do you open carry? If you answer is “for self-defense” that is good. If it is “because I am a law enforcement officer” that’s ok, too, I guess. An answer if "none of your business, it's my right" is fine. If your answer is “to make a political statement” or “to scare libtards!” that reason is less good. Note, I didn’t say ‘bad.’ Open carrying will, eventually, enure scaredy-cats to the sight of firearms, make them less hoplophobic by such exposure, normalize firearms existence, and fetishize them less. All good things.
But this guy is right, sometimes open carry advocates are a bit tone deaf to the possible response to their political actions, in some cases.
