When I first saw this thread I thought the exact same thing.
However, after reading it and thinking about it, I decided to not ask it be moved and found a reason for it being here.
In the US, firearms, for some such as me are a way of life. Open carry in towns for some is an alternative to the high fees and rigourous screening
some must go through for concealed carry. Therefore, over here, in my mind, an open carry firearm could and should be considered part of an EDC.
Therefore, it is survival, not weapons.
I carry everyday, everywhere I go. Sometimes its concealed, sometimes open depending on what I wear that day.
For a survivalist in Texas or another state without open carry laws, this could put a damper on how they choose to live and to prepare. Open carry
should be everywhere. Not just in the US, but you Brits as well, and the Krauts, and dare I say the French. The ability to express your right to
defend yourself is no different than your God given right to speak your mind, show affection in public, or to write your thoughts. We are all imbued
by our Creator life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. My liberty and yours should include a side arm. To defend yourself at all times. Open
carry for all, an armed republic is a safe republic.
