MainSail Makes Sense IMHO MainSail makes good sense. His piece is well thought out and very well crafted. Thanks MainSail for a thought-provoking piece that honestly looks at both sides of the Open Carry issue. As for me, I do both. I believe that we should be aware and respectful of other people's concerns but at the same time, the more Open Carry people see the less alarming it will be. I open carry on occasion and concealed carry on most othersl. If I know I'm going into an environment that will likely draw a negative reaction, I conceal. On the other hand, Open Carry has a certain freedom to it - and I have yet to have one negative opinion voiced to me while carrying openly. We are - whethe we accept it or not - Goodwill Ambassadors for the Second Amendment. We should carry, dress and conduct ourselves in a way that lowers the fear of those unfamiliar with firearms and increases the level of condience they have that they are actually much safer in our presence. Thanks again MainSail for a very well-written piece.
