    I'm all for a display of pro-2A. I do have to ask if this is the best place? Let me explain.

    Old Faithful is a huge tourist attraction, but for families. It is not a place that the media frequents, or at least a large volume of media with a huge viewership. It seems to me that the earthy parents and thier kids will be the only ones viewing the display. The 4th of July is a huge travel holiday where folks make long treks with children of all ages in tow. It is also a far away place in a vast area where people visiting are looking for a get away of sorts from the hustle and bustle of the daily grind.

    I am most likely being overly critical and cautious, but I envision a bunch of horrified tourists and their children not used to seeing a firearm being carried by anyone other than the police and forrest rangers. I can see several hippie types telling the media how a bunch of right-wing extremists invaded the park and scared their kids with their evil guns. Is this really what we need in a display of pro-2A? It seems that the plan is for shock value.

    A cookout on the State Capitol lawn with open carrying citizens seems more like a display of gun rights rather than looking to get attention by scaring a bunch of out-of-state tourists who have travelled from afar and a long planned family vacation.

    Maybe some explanatory & matching Tshirts could be helpful for those OCing? Maybe something like "i am not a terrorist, just a patriot exercising a constitutional right, please do not be afraid, & no i can't let you play with it".

    I wear that shirt every least the "No, I can't let you play with it" shirt.

    I have to agree. Scaring people with their children is not what I am about. I think it is a great idea. But perhaps a different location would be better.

    Of course, this is in Yellowstone on a big holiday. I can see the headlines now:

    Tourists are not scared by openly carried guns in the wild wild west. It happens everyday in various parts of Arizona. You are envisioning a non problem.

    I haven't been to Yellowstone in years...the wife has never been and this makes me want to take her. I won't be open carrying though.

    Thankfully it is your option whether or not to do so.

    I'll be there...

    I'll be there.... WITH MY SIDEARM.

    And to the Parents who teach their children to be "terrified" and "horrified" by law-abiding citizens exercising their right to keep and bear arms, I say "SHAME ON YOU."

    Children (and all American Citizens) need to understand that it is our Second Amendment that is their last hope for freedom.

    If you are afraid to exercise your rights in this country, then you may as well go hide somewhere and get out of our way.

    My .02....... for what it's worth.

    Flame on!

    I can't agree with the shame on them for being afraid of guns. Many decent people only get exposed to guns by media reports of mass murders of innocent people. Now they are on vacation with their kids and find a bunch of people carrying AKs or ARs for no apparent reason.

    I sure don't see this helping our cause. Just the opposite in fact. I think congress and BO would love to ban AW's again. They have both houses on their side. Stir up enough public opinion to back the dems play and we could be worse off for pushing our rights in the faces of the public sheep.

    There was a recent story of a small town where there was no law about public nudity. So some nut decides to express his "rights" and goes walking naked in the park. Across the street from the grade school. So they passed a law making nudity illegal. Sometimes using your rights in a way that upsets other people gets your rights removed.

    Why Not?

    This evil regime is going to do everything they can to shove total disarmament down our throats anyway..... no matter what we do. Besides, the press has, and will ALWAYS present us in a bad light. Who cares anymore? They're all a bunch of LIARS and GUN-GRABBING COMMUNISTS. I have zero respect or concern for what they say and do anymore. They've proven themselves unworthy of my respect.

    Myself, I'm not going down on my knees. I will continue to exercise my rights in this country. To Hell with them.

    As the saying goes....

    "A right unexercised is a right lost" or something like that.
