Open Carry Challenge

Susan Callaway at The Price of Liberty - Mama Liberty encourages everyone to open carry, wherever and whenever possible, to political rallies and while shopping. Bravo!

Why was there only ONE person who open carried in the recent New Hampshire story, or only a few at the Arizona protest? Why are not hundreds or thousands of us carrying openly everywhere, every day - and not just to protest the latest insanity of the government? It would quickly cease to be "news" if those hundreds - or thousands - were openly carrying in the grocery store, the bank, the park, the office and every other place possible.

As long as this right is connected mostly with politcal activity and protest, far too few will see it as a normal and rational act of free people, but will continue to dismiss it as the dangerous posturing of "wingnuts." Which is not at all to say that the exercise of our right to self defense is NOT a rational, political act as well. It just can't be relegated to that and remain viable.
