Unless you’re training Oklahomans to redefine open carry as concealed carry, or teaching them to skulk around in public, well-trained open carry gunslingers will be just as easy to identify as untrained open carry gun toters.

But I do my best to get past my bias (largely by acknowledging it, and then trying to see the other side of the issue). Sadly, the mainstream media exists in an insular world, where they neither acknowledge their biases, nor do they care to examine them, when someone points them out.
