I am not against open carry. Matter of fact during the summer months when it is hot, I will open carry because I don't have a long or heavy shirt to conceal my pistol. But that's just it;
I CARRY A PISTOL.
I don't lug my AR-15 into Chipolte AND POSE WITH IT FOR PICTURES LIKE A COMPLETE F*CKING DUMBASS!!!!
Understand this psychology and understand it well. This is no different than a woman who breastfeeds in public.
It isn't for the baby.
It isn't for convenience.
It is first and foremost for her ego.
And the morons totting rifles into public restaurants are guilty of the same. It's all about them, not gun rights.
Want to carry a pistol discreetly on your side?
Perhaps make a fashion statement with a particularly nice piece of gunsmithing, maybe even an admirable hoslter?
But looking like the rejected Taliban applicant dude-bros from the suburbs is going to intimidate and alienate people to the point you can't open carry period.
