Then one evening he stumbled across a site that urged gun owners to do something revolutionary: Carry your gun openly for the world to see as you go about your business.
In most states there's no law against that.
Jensen thought about it and decided to give it a try. A couple of days later, his gun was visible, hanging from a black holster strapped around his hip as he walked into a Costco. His heart raced as he ordered a Polish dog at the counter. No one called the police. No one stopped him.

As to the topic: I used to live in AZ, where I believe it is still legal to 'pack' a weapon, in plain sight. Laws change so often....
Having written the above....I find no need to fulfill my 'manhood' with a weapon. Yes, I understand it is a hobby to many, and I have hobbies as well. No one should be deprived of their hobby, as long as it does not hurt nor impinge on the rights of anyone else. (Radio Control model Airplanes, one of my hobbies....Hoo, boy!! Do people complain about the noise!!!)
IF...'an organized militia' were needed in the event of a 'future' Governmental oppression on our society....by 'oppression' I mean a full-blown Martial Law scenario...what chance would a 9mm Glock have against tanks and night-vision and AK-47s? (Sorry, my lack of knowledge of personal armaments available to the public is limited). BUT, other than a 'guerilla-type' resistance, what could the average citizen hope to achieve, against superior firepower technology???

Legal or not, I'll bet in a lot of areas you get stopped and harassed by the lawmen all day long.
Then there is the issue of being in a vehicle. I know that around these parts, having a gun on you while you're driving is kind of the point of going for your permit. We have far too many car-jackings and unsolved highway murders.
