Yea, I Open Carry my firearm And Yea, it's a real gun. I Open Carry because I have a right to do so. I also conceal carry as I have a permit for that
as well. But Open Carry sends a message, To some it says " Whos the cowboy " To some it says' Is that really needed. And for some it says " I want
bother trying to rob or accost that guy, he is armed" These are the folks I want that message going out to. Tired of all the folks who ask " Is that a
real gun? Sure is sweetie, why would I carry a fake gun? " Is it loaded ? Sure as hell is, an unloaded firearm is a hammer." I dont feel safe around
you knowing you have a gun"... I dont feel safe around you knowing you dont have a gun. " Have you ever had to use that gun'? Yes I have.
Why do have it on you in Walmart? Because I can, and all the robberies that take place in the parking lots. Ive been stop by store managers telling
me I cant enter with a firearm. I walk them to the front of their store and ask for them to SHOW me the signage that states ? NO WEAPONS ALLOWED.
without the signage, I simply ignore them and continue to shop. Why ? Because I can. I have that right. Are you paranoid or something? I always
answer " Or something". Because I OPEN CARRY does not give you the right to hurl remarks at me about me being armed. Each and every day some one is a
victim of a crime, every second another person falls prey to a robbery, mugging, rape, kidnap ETC ETC. I simply dont want to be in that statistic.
Then I ask some questions of my own.
Have you ever been robbed? Ever had your door kicked-in in the middle of the night with an armed intruder standing INSIDE your home? Ever, had to
shoot that armed intruder? Ever have to live with the fact you took anothers life while in the process of saving your own? I get a hell of alot of
NO's to those questions. I let em know I can answer YES to them all. That is WHY I OPEN CARRY. So when you see that guy'girl who have a firearm
strapped to their side...cut em some slack. The life they save with that gun could be yours. Or just being around that person could have already
stopped a thug from acting out. That's why I OPEN CARRY. Most LE will tell you straight up. The dont fear the man standing over there with a gun , in
a holster, strapped to a hip. Because they KNOW what he's up too. They will tell you it's the two standing over there milling around behind a car with
a possible gun in the waistband that they fear more.
So, when you see me out & about with my firearm....Please leave the questions at home. I dont walk up and ask you why the hell you wearing a purple
shirt with bright green pants.... So dont ask me about my firearm. Until my right to OPEN CARRY is taken away. Armed I will be.....everywhere I go.
PLEASE SUPPORT OPEN CARRY. THANKS and end of rant.
