Texas is, argumentatively, one of most firearm friendly states in America. Guns are very much a part of our heritage, and our culture. Currently, there is a group of 2nd amendment supporters actively promoting open carry of any and all firearms. The group, Open Carry Texas (OCT), is planning to hold a rally on May 31 at the local Home Depot. They expect 150 or more, fully armed supporters, to be there. Some think HD gave tacit approval for the event, but their home office is now indicating that the event would violate their non-solicitation policy and will not be allowed. I wouldn't want to be the store manager, or more likely, the police officer, who has to tell 150 fully armed people to leave the property. OCT has been promoting their cause by standing at busy intersections, always armed, usually with long guns or combat weapons, and distributing informational pamphlets. This past week, some groups have entered busy restaurants such as Chipotles and Starbucks. Apparently, many people are intimidated by a guy, with a 308 slung over his shoulder, ordering a Double Moche Carmel Ribbon Crunch Frappuccino. Anyway, many eating places, and stores are now posting No Guns allowed policies. What is your opinion of open carry, and do you think OCT's tactics are good or counterproductive?
