HYPOCRISY IN OUR GUN LAWS - OPEN CARRY MAY SOUND NUTTY UNLESS YOU ARE BETTER INFORMED
The 'Open Carry" march in Liberty, Texas may, at first glance, look like a bunch of rebel rousers from the fringes of society wanting to declare the need for anarchy rather than Constitutionally based, rule of law, in a government "by the people, for the people." BUT NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
The pictures, the short blurbs on the news, and every other attempt to wake America is tough because the optics look so threatening. But the threat is not if these marchingare successful, it is if they are not.
The law will allow citizens to carry all kinds of long rifles openly. And I mean all kinds! But the law will not allow a pistol to be openly carried. So as nutty as it is to some to see folks carrying an AK-47 openly in public, it is infinitely more ridiculous for the same lawmakers to prohibit the open carrying of a pistol. The laws should be reversed. No AK 47's, but a pistol strapped to the hip with a safety strap across the trigger.
The law needs to be changed! These folks are nearly all hard working, patriotic law abiding citizens. they are concerned that the laws should be changed. They are concerned that if the country does not use more common sense and less restricting of our Constitutional rights, when liberty is faced with its ultimate enemy, we will have allowed ourselves to be unarmed. The laws need to be changed before restrictions are expanded and liberty is assaulted further.
Readers please note that Terry Holcomb, Jeff LeBlanc, Aubrey Vaughan, and dozens of other locals have spent a great deal of time and money warning us. At the same time, the liberal media has enjoyed "covering" this issue in as convoluted of coverage as they can spin out.
The issue is simple. The pictures of marches if reparted in a simple, straight forward way would have a dramatic support in Texas. please help get the word out. The cause, the Open Carry Texas group wants the law to allow handguns to be safely and openly carried in public and end the hypocrisy. The liberal media wants you to feel threatened.
