Down Range Radio #640: The Anti-Gun Movement, Picking Our Battles and Courtesy

I understand his anger. He has been at the Gun Rights fight for decades and it has to piss him off royally that some young Open Carry Idiot comes along and carelessly destroys the labor that many people worked on for so long just because he wanted to look macho in Youtube.

  1. Why, when Trump was elected, did you Boomers all come down with case of collective amnesia and forget that the anti-gunners will always find a reason not to like us? “We gotta give up bump stocks to appease them”. No, now they want to ban semi autos. “We need stop open carrying, so as to not give them ammunition”. No, they’ll just find another reason to hate us. But go ahead, call me chest thumper, old man.

  2. @mouseGun There are OC, there are chest thumpers and OCIs. They are not all the same.

    I sometimes open carry. Why? Because the muzzle will sometimes peek out from under my shirt/coat whatever.

    Open Carry was a huge win because there was a time when a CCW holder could find themselves jacked up by the local LEO because their weapon printed. And once identified, it was amazing how many LEOs could see that gun print. Even when you weren’t carrying that day.

    And there are others I know that OC where it is subtle and not in your face. There are some that sort of subtle but still “want you to know” they are carrying.

    There are the chest thumpers that scream about Mah Rights (to quote somebody), but have never made a call to their senator or representative. Never shown up in person to talk to any of their elected representatives.

    Finally there are OCI or Open Carry Idiot. This is that guy that puts on plate carrier, slings an AR-15 over their back, puts on a drop leg holster and then wanders into the local coffeeshop with a full 300 rounds in loaded mags.

    We call this “Freaking The Mundanes” in the SCA or renfaire circuit. You walk into the local cafe wearing all your garb and a sword, and a dagger.

    OCIs freak the mundanes and it isn’t helpful. OC (without the I) help to normalize firearms.

    Which are you?
