I disagree with this form of activism

Although I understand he has a right to do this, it doesn't mean that he should. The second amendment exists to guarantee the protection of our lives and personal property.

Standing on a street corner with a sign and an AR-15 to simply make the point that, "Hey everyone, look at me.... I have a gun" turns people off. It is no different than walking through a crowded mall screaming F*@k at the top of your lungs just because you have a 1st amendment right to free speech.

If you are looking to draw attention to second amendment rights, the video of girls open carrying in Walmart is a much more effective method. They were exercising their 2nd amendment rights as intended, by going about their daily lives with protection.

The more that people are saved from dangerous situations by citizens packing heat, the more credibility it builds with the public at large as to why the second amendment should be protected.

peace + liberty = prosperity
