The point is a person can get on a soapbox and forward all their justified anger at some one who didn't know their job perfectly and sleep well that night.

But it isn't positive. It doesn't help the cause.

Calm education does.

I work in a professional setting where the rules change daily and keeping up with everything is a task...

I'm glad some of the cops in my area don't enforce some of the antiquated laws on the books.

Who you vote for and what gets lobbied for yes.

I just don't see Congress sitting around and saying..." has anyone seen anyone else open carry this month? No? Guess it's tine to vote that off the books!"

It will get voted out by someone worried about someone else who IS open carrying.

Most of you are doing a great job showing people open carry is safe etc...but it only takes a few butt heads belligerently open carrying, negating the positives that will cause voting.

So maybe a right not exercised properly can be taken away. A right misused will.
So you feel special interest that lobbies for what is beneficial for the corporation will protect your liberties more than if you actually exercise your rights? PERSONAL ATTACK REMOVED BY MOD Interestingly disturbing if you ask me......

It isn't my responsibility to give a cop on the job training. He's supposed to know these things already. The second amendment hasn't changed in over 200 years so the police should have no problem keeping up.

A) not all lobbies are strictly corporate.

B) a concentrated lobby campaign will have a far greater effect that lone citizens randomly open carrying.

It's disturbing you haven't noticed that lobbies have constantly been effective to pass legislation often timed when the thing lobbied for is not desired by the minority.

We should be doing both lobbying and carrying. What we shouldn't be doing is undermining someones right to open carry just because you don't like it. That's how the liberals work. They don't like it so nobody should be doing it. I just don't know why so many gun owners can't see that.
