The clip looks completely set up, including the LEO's IMO. I'm not commenting on the guy trolling for a LEO's response but the possible need for CC in every state.

They took our open carry away here in California, even with the mag being out of the gun they felt it was too dangerous.... Lol I love when guns aim and shoot people all while the gun owner is sitting back and enjoying his non fat soy latte!

This thread should take off...

Just to make sure I comprehend what your saying, all states should mandate that the only method in which a citizen can exercise their right to carry a fire arm is through concealing it?

We have a vigorous debate in ga among carriers concerning open vs concealed, our law allows any one with a ga weapons license to carry concealed or open, the way it should be IMO.

I don't open carry often, I wish I did more, the more people who exercise the right to more common place and less noticed open carry will become.

Another advantage to states allowing open carry is I don't have to worry about my weapon becoming exposed when I carry concealed or lazily conceal.

The benefits of open vs concealed debate is an intense one... But don't discount the merits of open carry, the main one being it's your right.

It is your right to burn the flag, just some rights are not a real good idea.

I thought this was going to be a thread about carrying an open alcoholic beverage around in public.

By rough estimation most of the people I know who concealed carry are responsible gun owners whose judgement I trust. However, I also know several that carry who are complete morons. Don't have the good sense or judgement of a well adjusted nine year old. I imagine the rest of the carrying world is the same proportions.

So, lets make everyone open carry. Gives us a head start on deciding who around us is an armed moron so we can take steps to remain out of the line of fire.

IMO, open carry is an open invitation for many different problems to come your way.
As fishndive said, you're going to be the first target for a criminal. Especially one that wants a gun that has no connection to him.
There are also people that will try to provoke you into an altercation, just to see how you'll react ("you think you're a bad ass carrying that gun"). Act, or react wrong, and you could be doing jail time!.......
......And then there's the attention that you'll certainly glean from law enforcement, all the while crying "What did I do?"

We can carry both in Savannah. Just not at the same time.

This I agree with most. While there are problems with both open and CC the bigger issue is not being allowed to do so at all.
