    To add to her credentials..she was a Republican up until 2006. No true Texan would lean backwards.

    For border security, it's money well spent.

    It varies from person to person, but the general mindset is to want to be calling attention to yourself, to be the big man strutting around. Wanting to present an overt threat.

    It's not about protecting yourself. Open carry does that worse than concealed carry. Element of surprise, and all that. Criminals have the initiative by nature. Open carry makes you the first target, and you can't draw until they done something or else you are the criminal.

    Yes. I'm going to make sure I attack and disable that person first, giving them no chance to actually use that gun. I, the theoretical criminal, get to decide how this confrontation begins. I'm going to start by shooting you in the back of your head, or maybe just hitting you on the back of the head with a large rock. So easy a caveman could do it. So much for thousands of years of weapons advancement.

    Pretty eager to divert from the weaknesses of the candidate under discussion to anything else?

    Are you sort of in the I-said-I-supported-her-and-so-now-I'm-stuck trap?

    Who with any sense would believe her now? Here's an opportunity to keep a liar out of office. We already know what happens after they get in office. Period.

    no it doesn't, most criminals are oppurtunistic, not tactical. a criminal can pick your lock and disable your alarm too, but most won't, because there's plenty of people with no alarms who leave their doors unlocked.

    this is a myth, it so rarely happens that it's not really a valid argument.

    Re: Texas gov candidate Wendy Davis supports open carry law

    just because of this thread, when I ran to the bank and the grocery store this morning, instead of dressing preppy and fashionable with a glock in a skinny holster concealed, I dressed in jeans, a thick flannel, and boots for the rural appearance, and I strapped on my glock out in the open on my belt. went to bank, did my business, went to the grocery store, did my business, and I did not witness one disarming attempt, I wasn't "shot first" even once........

    hmmmm something must be going on here

    maybe the criminals who seek out open carriers to disarm and shoot first all had the day off today....
