just responding to each of your posts to me--
telling me I'm talking out my ass when I object to your open-carry rifle-toter disturbing the peace--
and infringing on the rights of others to not worry about rifle-toter shooting him in the back when he's stocking shelves--
10 minutes is clearly enough time to pay attention -

you are a threat to my rights... you are not a threat to my person, though.
I have every right to say what I want about my rights..... in fact, such speech is afforded the strongest protection, as it it political speech.
you do understand that it's really only very recently that open carry has been illegal ( in some states) right?... it was extremely common for most of our history as a county ( and before)..... so in very real terms, it's not me who is bastardizing the 2a... that would be your side.As soon as one of you open-carry rifle-toters walks in a store, watch the customers flee, while the store-owner must now go for his gun just in case.
Another extreme gift from those bastardizing the 2A .
but yes, some people will freak out over open carrying a rifle or any firearm... if the folks whom are carrying are doing so legally and correctly and are not behaving in a threatening manner, the folks who flee are being irrational.... they should be vigilant, not panic stricken
of course, that's too much to ask for .. emotions are much stronger than intellects in many people... rationally is not something you can expect from
personally, I don't open carry a rifle... there's no reason for me too... it's impractical.
I always, however, carry concealed handguns
