Every time I see "open carry" I think alcohol and not guns (and this guy walks like he's intoxicated), but recently there have been a couple of guys in my neighborhood who just go down to the park with their rifles strapped to their backs and intentionally go to where kids are playing arguing it's their fucking right.
"Open carry activists". 100% the worst people.
I own guns, and it's asshats like this guy who make gun owners look bad. And I'm actually surprised that it took him 3 minutes to break out some variation of "MY TAX DOLLARS PAY YOUR SALARY".
These poor cops. There, I said it.
It's weird. Just a few days ago I was shooting the shit with my boss, and it's weird to have a boss that agrees on pretty much everything, but for some reason we started talking about guns and I said that I've never held one and never want to. Turns out he loves owning a gun, hunting, things like that. It was almost like he was in a Catholic confessional booth. Like I give a shit? Dude's fucking rad and that's all there is to it. I'm a vegan but go ahead and eat veal in front of me and I don't care. This guy's the equivalent of those vegans who walk into restaurants to tell everybody that what they're doing is wrong and this is the right way to do it.
It's the equivalent of smearing shit all over your face, donning a clown suit in public, and then accosting strangers when they give you a wary glance. It might be within your rights to do so, but it totally disregards the people around you and you end up looking like an asshole clown with shit in his eye.
I carry when I'm dispersed camping in bear/cougar/poacher country. That's about it. I don't conceal carry in the city because I'm not a terrified dipshit.
For the record, these open carry types are EVERYWHERE in Oregon.
I'm not usually one to jump on the race bandwagon but holy shit can you imagine if this guy was black doing this?
There was a fellow by the name of Fred Hampton who did just that. It ended pretty much how you'd expect.
