The Open Carry Ride Was NOT to Push for Open Carry!
Personally, I do not want to see all of America walking about wild-west style with pistols strapped to their hips or AR-15s slung about their shoulders.
Walking about with a gun on your hip is NOT the image of the 2nd Amendment I help.
I personally think that open-carry is normally inappropriate and somewhat rude – but I also think that there is a “time and a place” for open carry.
Open Carry Laws: Why I Take a Moderate Method to Open Carry Laws
Initial, I am in help of federal and state governments permitting open carry. As with all my political beliefs, I help a “limited government.”
So when it comes to open carry versus concealed carry, the key cause why I help the correct to open carry a firearm is that if the government of your state calls for you to concealed carry, the government has a massive “say” in how you dress.
In order for your regional government to demand you to conceal your firearm, they hence will have to dictate how you are going to dress (to a particular degree.)

So let’s say you and I go out for a hike collectively.
Commonly, I like to put on just shorts and a t-shirt, and whilst hiking, fishing, camping, or other outdoorsy-form activities, I really feel that open carry may possibly be proper.
We will not be coming across numerous people today, and on a hot summer time day you do not necessarily want to put on an more than-sized t-shirt to retain your pistol hidden.
(Not to mention, the wildlife you encounter may possibly be additional of a threat against you than some of the people today out in public regions – in which case open carry makes it possible for quicker access to your pistol.)
But let’s say you and I just go out for a trip to the mall, a film theater, or a regional Walmart.
I personally think that open carry in that predicament is very inappropriate and really should be frowned upon by the 2nd Amendment neighborhood.
I take into consideration the 2nd Amendment Neighborhood I take component in to be the “peace-keepers” of today’s society. Our 1st job is to de-escalate potentially hazardous circumstances – but fully grasp and train for the time exactly where we will have to be surgically hazardous ourselves in order to defend human life.
It is my basic belief that you and I will have to take the “peace-keeper” mentality to the forefront of the political spectrum as effectively. The majority of law-abiding gun owners just do not want open carry to be the norm, and of course, anti-gunners definitely do not want to see guns on the streets either.
The Goal of Our Open Carry Motorcycle Ride
My open carry motorcycle ride had a couple of key objectives:
- Enhance unity amongst the 2nd Amendment neighborhood
- Demonstrate to America that 300 loaded guns can be in a single place at a single time – and no a single gets hurt! (Guns are not the difficulty – people today are!)
- Preserve the terrorists and evil-doers at bay by providing an unmistakable show of force
Conclusions: Open Carry Vs Concealed Carry
I can sum up my complete belief on Open Carry in a single very simple sentence:
“I think open carry really should be LEGAL in all 50 states to let us the correct to opt for our attire, but that the 2nd Amendment neighborhood really should take good care in deciding what predicament is proper when carrying.”
