Is the Lone Shooter Event About Killing the Open-Carry Movement While It's Young?

Directing the Narrative

Another day, another lone shooter claiming innocent lives - or so the narrative will go as the media tries to tie this 'lone event' to every other tragic shooting in recent memory and label it an 'epidemic'. Be it government plot or true lone gunner, this most recent event is just what was needed to halt another potential epidemic - the 'Open Carry' movement.

Nipping a late bloomer in the bud?

It hadn't been labeled a 'Movement' yet. But it soon might have, if this story of a man (who may have been an innocent victim himself of brainwashing) hadn't come along -

-2 men were detained for 46 minutes then released with no charges when they were spotted walking towards a farmer's market with AR-15s strapped to their backs

Not only have these open-carry 'events' been happening more frequently, they've been caught on film. And they've been 'released' with no charges and sent on their way! Surely something had to be done to stop this. Something had to happen.

Will it work? Or will it backfire?

There will be two, exactly two of course 'sides' to the debate: The 'Gun nuts' (as they will hereafter be referred to by the Inane-Stream Media) will continue to carry while advocating for the second amendment and claiming that they are indeed sane and normal. The movement lives on.

The media will call them 'insensitive' to the families of these and other victims of the 'AR-15 Epidemic', gun owners will back off, and even more footage will be lost on an already slippery slope. The movement is shamed into submission.

The scariest question - when will the next one come?

This will be the Has-Been Media's final appeal to 'sanity' on this issue. The lingering question of the 'inevitability' of the next attack and who will it be, where will it be? Officially, no one knows, but we do know that it will be one of those 'Gun Backers Nuts' or 'Open-Carrier Loons' because they're the only one rude and mean and inconsiderate and insensitive enough to go around with GUNS!!!

A Long Fight

It's a long war to try to disarm a nation. The Open Carry movement is but one battle front but an important one that had been creeping slowly but steadily into the enemy's camp. The 'Carriers', the citizens, the people of this country who had the courage to open carry before this shooting deserve our respect and support when they choose to open carry after this 'event'.

Especially now, as they face direct and sustained attack from the ghostly yet strangely still powerful three-headed media attack dog. This dog doesn't just sink its teeth in. It keeps attacking from different angles. If it isn't kept in its cage it will attack veterans, and handguns, and anything else they see as a threat.

The purpose of a gun is for defense. The purpose of openly carrying a gun is to inform would-be threats that you are prepared to defend yourself and others. Now more than ever America needs such defenders. Now they will be on the front line.

Don't feed the pandas. Ever.

The sheep were grazing in

The sheep were grazing in their daily peace
But the wolf always watched, waiting for his release

For years his hounds would keep evil at bay
Ever close to the sheep, the guardians would stay

The shepard would visit a man from deep in the city
Who spoke bad about his dogs and sounded so sensibly

So one day the shepard had sent all his dogs home
"Those mutts scare me" he began to drone

So it was only the shepard that the sheep did trust
For protection agaisnt the wolf's bloodlust

But they day finally came, the shepard was asleep
The dogs ran from the house but they were soundly beat

The wolf had come and devoured his kill
For the shepard had betrayed his wisdom for some mindless shill

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

I love that.

That's great!

July 10-12 2012 Open Carry Trifecta of wins...

http://www.examiner.com/article/open-carry-movement-achieves...

..."On July 10th the Wichita, KS City Council repealed the ordinance banning the open carry of handguns in order to comply with state law. In a subsequent “media advisory,” the Wichita city government explained that the
“new ordinance allows for the lawful open carry of a firearm. The only exceptions, as provided by other state and city laws, are City Hall, the Courthouse and various detention facilities, where open carry is still prohibited.”

Then on July 11th Keloland TV News reported that Sioux Falls, SD Mayor Mike Huether rescinded an “Executive Order banning guns on city property. The city attorney said the policy would not hold up if challenged in court . . . Open Carry South Dakota Spokesman Don Hixon said the repeal expands personal freedoms.”

The next day on July 12th a Michigan jury returned a not guilty verdict in the case of a man arrested for “disturbing the peace" for merely open carrying a firearm in public. At Monochus Lex OpenCarry.org's John Pierce explains that this was yet another case of the police and prosecutors misusing "these 'catch-all' charges to chill the rights of citizens."...
