But still, I consider open carry to be idiotic:
1. If you open carry, you are the first target for a mass shooter. Especially when everyone else who has seen you open carrying look to you to "Do Something!"
2. If the police come looking for a man with a gun, its best to not be one.
Despite one's right to open carry, I think concealed carry is far superior. Open carry rallies tend to turn public opinion against gun rights, because most people find the open carry of a gun, especially a long gun, as threatening. No matter how wrong they are, the act disincentivises the support of our cause.
Who left the fridge open?
Meanwhile we have poor bakeries that refuse to bake a cake for homosexuals and they're massively under fire - and making someone bake a cake is NOT a civil liberty. If anything it's a basic lack of tolerance for those with religious views that prevent them from partaking in such a "wedding" or ceremony.
Carrying a gun is a civil liberty.
Refusing to back a cake for homosexuals violates ZERO civil liberties.
It just seems progressives enjoy the Bill of Rights being spit and **** on given any reason - and ironically now progressives are using "business freedom" as an excuse for this level of tyranny.
BTW it is a CIVIL RIGHT considering it is the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights - hence a CIVIL RIGHT/LIBERTY.
If you want to get into specifics constitutional rights are different than Civil liberties. But I'm in no mood to be giving civics/ US history lectures - especially on ideas that are generally thought of as common knowledge.
This may help you a bit, but I highly doubt it will change your mind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timelin...s_Constitution
