Is it Time for a National "Open Carry Month"?Submitted by Gary Patridge on Thu, 01/17/2013 - 21:26
A Right, if left unexercised is no Right at all.
We need to make our numbers known. We need to prompt real conversations with the people we encounter.
One day protests are great but their effects are usually short-lived. We need something to start and sustain a meaningful conversation. It's time for us to stop whining and walk the walk.
I propose a Nationwide OPEN CARRY MONTH starting on March 1st, 2013. Across America, strap your sidearm on your hip and wear it all day and wherever you go. Use the inevitable "encounters" to respectfully educate and demonstrate responsible citizenship.
If you like the idea, send it out to your contacts. If not, I'd be curious to know why?
