Welcome to the madhouse, Mick. Here’s how it goes. Take notes, you might need a spreadsheet.
On the one hand, if open carry was legal, duh, I’d be all for it. I would wear a sidearm just because I could, and also because my big black Taurus .357 is one hell of a fashion accessory. Got a drop-leg holster for it and everything. It would match my Prada handbag.
On the other, the isn’t an issue I feel strongly about enough to get involved. I can’t open carry in Texas? Meh. No skin off my nose.
Oh, hey! The Government shut down! Right on! I’M IN CHARGE! I’M IN CHARGE!
