    Unconstitutional laws imo.

    Did you know that laws banning concealed carry are being shot down by the courts? Why wouldn't they do the same for open carry based on the same reasoning? There is no real difference between the two.

    Link

    The same type of law was overturned in Illinois, and in Washington DC the courts struck down the laws that banned any type of carrying a gun in public. Both open and concealed carry. I think its just a matter of time before those states that have banned open carry will get their laws struck down too.

    See I would have thought, of the two, that concealed carry would be banned, because then everyone knows that you're armed and there's no ignoring gun-buster signs.

    Because open carry is for idiots and show offs, not the type of people I want carrying guns.

First one has to educate one's children, not pretend the gun doesn't exist as many seem to, and secondly have a gun a child cannot, CANNOT, operate.

    A Glock has such a stiff slide, no child can chamber a round, yet an adult can do it in a second meaning it's ready for an adult to use if an immediate threat occurs. That's what I had and every year on their birthday's they were required to try to pull the slide (with no rounds or magazine in the Glock), and as soon as they could it was off to gun training and the shooting range.
    Both my 1911's have got very strong springs and stiff hammers so racking the slide cannot be done easily by even a few adults much less a young child. I always keep the chamber clear when Im in the house so even if my son can somehow reach for it (even though he normally cant) it would be impossible for him to rack the slide. Ive trained using an Isreali draw (racking the slide as you aim for the target) so that I can chamber a round as I draw it.

    If the parents didn't have the gun secured, they should be charged with negligent homicide.

    And this is an excellent example of why all kids, even those in homes without guns, should be taught what to do if they find a gun.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
