Personally i fully support your right to open carry. The more distraction the bg has the better for me. Open carry is also a deterrent gives goblins pause that it might not be a good idea. Open carry is a good thing it means that folks who choose not to oc and accidentally show their gun wont be arrested or harrased by evil liberals out to squash freedom.

Open carry is a damn fine thing i personally would rather be in a room full of oc folks than no one having a gun if the goblins come callin.

Az has always had the right to open carry. It was the carry concealed with out a permit that passed last year. But yes I understand what your getting at. That is one of the reasons I love living here.

Arizona was the heart of the wild west and AZ also continued on modern conservitisim thanks in big part to Barry Goldwater. Its nice to know our state keeps that tradition.

And California has the jerks and perps. Most of them are involved in the state government.

Yeah. If I wasn't buried up to my neck in roots here I would leave as well. We have land, owe nothing on it and make a meager living off of it.

That being said I have to also say that California is by far the best place I have ever been as far as climate and weather is concerned (and I have been all over the country). Right here where I live is one of the most beautiful places in the country year round in my opinion. The only thing that ruins it is the people!

It would be nice if we could get some reasonable carry laws though.
