    I'm all for open carry in Texas. I see very little reason why we should be allowed to carry long guns openly, be able to carry concealed handguns, yet not be able to open carry handguns.

    I really hate to see this - I'm all for our 2nd amendment rights (and the argument in post 2, above) but these folks do nothing but intensify the division between the 2 philosophies

    do you recall the million man march ? that, and all the others of it's type, did a poor job of embellishing the "civil rights" movement upon people's thinking

    Shows support and that a large number of voters support OC. That's what matters.

    There are a few idiots who let their ego interfere with the message but I see no problem with the rallies.

    Those who are so deeply ingrained with a hatred of guns that they would be considered on the other side of the wedge will never come around anyways. Being quiet hasn't been getting us anywhere. It lets politicians think we aren't paying attention, send the message that gun rights are low on the priority list.

    This sends the message that letting 2A rights get trampled will get noticed and will cost then votes.


    And you never know if a few folks might come up and ask some questions, opening the opportunity to invite them to the range, and educate a few more folks about guns and the 2A.


    Still, there is a smart way to do it and a dumb way. The few dummies get much more attention and should be called out for being dummies. A big ego is not a valuable tool for restoring 2A rights.

    well, it should be on this evening's news - so, we'll see if it's the "smarties" or the "dummies" who showed up for the spectacle (I'm one of those who are against this sort of sensationalism as I feel it's akin to striking workers having their kids carry "strike signs")

    So, what harm was done by the million man march? How did it hurt the civil rights movement?

    Would black have been better off sitting quietly at the back of the bus?

    Would they have angered less people by not drinking from that water fountain?


    What exactly were you saying?

    what I meant by the MMM comment is that it was a complete failure for it's intended purpose and, in fact, it did nothing but degrade what it was meant to accomplish - same thing with these displays/prancings with long guns hanging from the shoulder and daring folks to respond in a negative way

    and you too are reading nonsense into what I'm posting, please don't do that

    I've seen 2 TV reports on the march on 2 different networks, neither showed ANY type of sensationalism or pro gun people daring anyone else. What are you talking about?

    Or, did I read nonsense in what you're posting?
