Robb has a great post on open carry activism and I was leaving a comment there but it got long and ranty so I moved it here. Go read his post first, I’ll wait.
I don’t really care about whether open carry is useful or not as a tool for activism. Constitutional rights are, by definition, inconvenient for some people.
Waiting on a warrant is inconvenient for a cop.
Freedom of religion is inconvenient for the one true religion. (whatever that is)
Freedom of the press is inconvenient for those who seek to suppress knowledge.
ALL our rights are inconvenient to those who wish to ignore them for their own purposes.
So, I don’t care if carry, open or concealed, is inconvenient for some people. It’s a Constitutional Right and I’m damned tired of it being violated.
