A TTAG reader gave us a heads-up on an email from the Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland Anti-Terrorism Office warning personnel about the [next] open carry demonstration planned for Alamo Plaza, San Antonio on October 19. That would be the same USAF ATO that prohibited airmen from non-official travel to or through Mexico at the start of this year. It looks like Uncle Sam equates open carry advocates as dangerous dudes. As do The People of the Gun . . .
If someone came up with a clean bill outlawing all OC, I’d call up my reps and beg them to vote for it. These children can’t seem to be trusted carrying guns openly in public without making the rest of us look like nutjobs . . . There are just too many idiots out there trying to “help” [undermine my gun rights]. Hey, I’ve had enough – time to look out for #1. I’m happy to throw these clowns under the bus so that they can’t do Bloomberg any more favors.
On the other side of the coin, I’ve been saying that open carry advocates may make us uncomfortable, but it is their right to do so. Those who oppose them—Starbucks, for example—are our antagonists. Period. The Yankee Marshall’s on the same page:
