    Finally some wisdom. I want OC rights regained in Texas, but Dweele Dee and Dweele Dum pictured above will only make us lose what little we do have, not gain OC of handguns back.

    I agree fully with Open Carry….. BUT let’s use some COMMON SENSE ….

    All these idiots are doing, is giving the REST of us a BAD name…

      I agree. I am also a huge proponent of concealed carry as well. You don’t alarm anti-gun, paranoid people if they don’t know you are carrying!

    If the idea is to get back the right to carry a handgun openly in public in Texas, these two are working for the other side. If the open carry “activists” would just use their brains, we’d probably get this passed in the next legislative session. Now we are going to have resistance from groups representing private businesses. This is a group with considerable legislative pull, and one that otherwise would have remained neutral.

    Just goes to show most young people don’t have the wisdom or common sense that comes with age. These immature brats need to find a mentor. Just because we have a Constitutional right to do something doesn’t mean that it’s always wise to do it. And the one on the left in the photo needs to go on a diet as well.

    I disagree. Now we are split. “If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately.” – Benjamin Franklin.
    I don’t necessarily condone it, but now there is a riff between us. A riff that will be exploited to it’s fullest and it
    will go both ways. You don’t condone carrying long arms but you want to carry your sidearm? Doesn’t really make sense to me.

    In Oklahoma, where we have open carry, pro-open carry supporters wore empty holsters into businesses to show passive aggressive support for open carry. We haven’t had any issues since open carry became law on November 1,
    Never been asked to leave a business. I’ve been all over the state… in all kinds of businesses & restaurants… never had a problem or complaint.

    I usually dress in good clean blue jeans & a pocket T-shirt. I have a good hair cut and maintain a good appearance… and carry my weapon in a good holster. Now if someone looks like they just crawled out of a ditch on their belly and have their gun tucked IWB, then they might raise some concern with businesses and the general public. Also, open carry people don’t want to be acting like Barney Fife… always fiddling with their handgun or resting their hand on the grip. And certainly they don’t want to unholster their weapon in order to show it to someone.

    The guys with the double shoulder harnesses, cowboy holsters or drop leg holsters quickly get made fun of and stop carrying that way.

      Oklahoma’s open carry law became effective 11/01/12. Sure wish this site let you edit mistakes.

    Two guys looking like those two walking into some businesses with long guns in their hands would last less than two seconds. You just don’t antagonize an already sensitized business owner by looking like mass murderers. A lot of us already deal with a violent society and we don’t want to have to guess who the bad guys are.
