Do the words "shall not be infringed" mean anything to you?
They aren't mentally "old" enough to have ANY gun.

The people who aren't old enough to buy pistol ammo aren't mentally "old" enough to have any gun? Or were you referring to the open carriers?

I'm referring to people who think the general public will be filled with admiration for some turkey who struts around in a small, crowded coffee shop showing off a long gun. Especially when the crowded conditions would not even give him/her room to deploy the gun even if it would be needed.
All that does is pi$$ people off. It doesn't evoke great respect.

first of all, i fully support open carry along with concealed carry.

now what does bother me about some who open carry is not the fact that they are excercising their right to do so, but sometimes the way and where they choose to excecise that right.

personally, i see them doing more damage to the cause and doing all gun owners a disservice when they are alienating non-gun owners and business's against us.

what impression or what image do we the responsible gun owner want the general public to percieve us as?

there is a right way and a wrong way to approach anything in life. some of these people saying they are excercising their rights are using the wrong way to get the job done in a responsible manner.

legally i could walk into the grocery store or my local WalMart with my AR slung over my shoulder, but i can tell you right now, it ain't happening. simply because of the image or perception it would present to those around me. it's legal, and it's my right to do so. but i con't consider it to be responsible or a mature adult thing to do. i also think it sends the wrong message to the general public an is a poor representation of a responsible gun owner and a citizen who is concerned about his community.

now i live in Texas and there are groups trying to get passed the legal carrying openly of pistols here. now if they had a rally in a public place to promote this being passed, i would be there supporting it.

there are mature and responsible actions to get the message across and to change things. i would much rather approach them from that angle. like peaceable rallies, sending letters and emails to my representatives and legislators to get a law passed making open carrying of a pistol legal in the state of Texas.

Amen. Just as an analogy, there are some people who own and love to play a tuba. But to go to a private business and spend the afternoon blowing their tuba might get them asked to leave. And if 2 dozen tuba tooters went to the business place day after day, loudly blowing their tubas, that might scare enough customers away so that the business would go belly up.

So why should I not be allowed to defend myself by carrying a firearm? What is the reasoning behind making the age 21 instead of 18? Why, as a tax paying, law abiding adult am I not granted my 2A?

There is not any history in the last few years of people having a shootout in a Sonic nor a Chili's food trough. They are not generally considered to be risky environments. So maybe it would make some kinda sense to just take that awesome risk and leave the toy outside, just to avoid being a spectacle, instead of intentionally being a spectacle.

AMEN!!! I haven't come to this forum for some time, mainly because I've been busy cutting weeds, planting a garden and building a tool/solar electrical equipment shed. But it seems like I got attacked right out at my first post on this thread, sadly, it seems like the wording was almost in arrogance in reference to my lack of knowledge (training?). This may be why I have kind of distanced myself from coming here, on the other hand I recently received an e-mail from Firearms Talk saying they hadn't heard from me for awhile and to come back and participate. I acknowledge that there are many on this forum that are far more well trained than I am, I know my limitations but I have to say I certainly don't need that kind of negativity while putting in my two cents worth. I am 71, I still can shoot pretty dang good, I'm not afraid to kill and gut animals (or whatever needs gutting) because being up to my elbows in blood just doesn't bother me. I just happen to believe that the approach to getting the OC issue out is not always done with wisdom and may in fact cause non gun owners that have nothing against the 2A to become soured.
