More on open carry

The Washington Post still hasn't run my (or any other) pro gun letter. I know I promised to post it, I'll try to remember tonite.

But in the meantime, check out the New York Times, which today ran a very pro gun letter.
Open carry of handguns has been legal in many states for generations, far longer than concealed carry, which has recently become so popular throughout the nation. Before complaining about such a peaceful and longstanding American tradition, consider the last time in recent memory someone openly carried a handgun on his belt and committed a crime or injured someone. Probably never.

These are the most law-abiding of all gun owners - the folks who take gun ownership and safety the most seriously.
Good for them. And congrats to Daniel Schmutter of West Orange, New Jersey for getting one through.
