That'a a valid point, and a wonderful "what if," but has nthing to do woth the issue at hand. I support open carry for those that want to do so, but it's a right that has to be exercised with a little restraint and common sense. This whole thing just skylines law-abiding gun owners as insensitive jerks, which is completely counter to the open carry movement, and 2A rights as a whole.
