I read exactly what it said: "trained open carrying citizens". If it said "armed citizens" I wouldn't have a problem with it. I am against any form of regulated or mandatory training and open carry is a personal decision and should not be used as a vehicle for political change.
Remember, only a small percentage of folks are either 2A supporters or 2A enemies. The vast majority of people could care less. A sea of folks packing openly has a tendency to shock folks and we do not need freaked out soccer moms and terrified accountants thinking it's Dodge City. We want and need folks to see us as normal Americans - just like them...
