I'm all for open carry, however ... Online petitions are nearly worthless. They are roundly ignored by all because they require zero effort to organize and represent far less commitment from "signatories" than real paper petitions requiring some serious shoe leather to get signed. A letter-writing campaign (as in physical letter that must be delivered by the postal service) is far more effective than an online petition and shows that not only are all the participants willing to put pen to paper, but they're willing to spend a few cents to send the message.
I believe open carry to be from a face value rather worthless. However, when you think about it's actual purpose, it would mean that if we carry concealed, and the firearm were to momentarily be seen by someone the ramifications of that pure accident are less, and more protected. Hence I would support something of that nature.
One of my many long term goals for the site is to become pro-active in politics. To organize the members into preserving rights we were born with, and work to achieve those logical rights we have yet to obtain.
You misunderstand. Online petitions are nearly worthless and utterly ignored by those they seek to influence. It takes no effort to organize or add your name to an online petition thus they carry no weight.

The law states "intentionally fail to conceal the handgun" If you are making a real effort to conceal, would you really be in toruble?
