I’ve been seeing a lot of videos in the YouTube gun community about Open Carry. They all discuss the legalities of it, which vary from state to state. However, none of them really discuss the ethics of Open Carry. Specifically how to open carry without coming across as a jerk to citizens or law enforcement. You’ve no doubt seen some of the videos posted by Marked Guardian, who films his (often hostile) confrontations with police officers on a regular basis. That, in my opinion, does more to hurt the pro-Second Amendment movement than help it. I think you’d benefit your readers, myself included, if you took a little time to share your thoughts on the issue and how we can exercise our Constitutional rights without scaring everyday people away from our cause.
