Thousands sign petition to make Texas an open-carry state

H/T: Lone Star Times

This was "news" last week, but I didn't get around to snarking on it (and others) until today.

I guess I don't have too much of a problem with others carrying a weapon openly. I must admit, it seems like most thugs would think twice (but do they even think?) before instigating something in the presence of a free-man, or -woman.

For my purposes, the issue is a "no-go." I figure a visible weapon makes me a bullet magnet. No thanks. I'll stayed concealed and try to fly "under the radar" for now.

The open carriers' cry of " . . . a right unexercised is a right lost . . . " is justified, though I do not intend to open carry in the foreseeable future. Whether open, or concealed, carrying of a weapon is a right. God given and immutable. Carrying openly is just not sound practice in my opinion.

If you want to carry openly, please go ahead. I'll stay low if TSHTF.

Be safe and God Bless Ya'll!
