Open Carry Makes Texas Look.. Stupid or Smart?

I always had rules to live by at dinner: Elbows off the table and no foul language were a few, but now it seems someone somewhere has to say ‘No guns allowed.’

Man, these “open carry” protests — depending on who you are — are making Texas look incredibly stupid or incredibly  smart.

These people have been locked and loaded in places like The Home Depot, Target and Chiplotle.  Nothing goes together like a burrito and an AR-15.

This is not illegal in Texas, unless of course someone, say, in the booth nearby, gets freaked out.  I’m told these protestors do this because they want “open carry” in Texas to include handgun.

But, c’mon.  How do they expect anyone to have an “open” mind about gun laws with situations like this?  Because if I see him in the frozen food section, I’m freezing!!

Yeah, someone  with the NRA called this weird, but maybe these open carry people should target a page from the NRA’s playbook—they’ve (the NRA) has  managed to kill major gun legislation because they are powerful, organized and loaded — not because they carry rifles in public.

Okay, they did that one time, but you get the point, open carry guy: If you want change, change your game plan. Because no one is taking you seriously.

So go ahead.  You make think you’re making someone’s day—but you’re killing everyone’s appetite for wanting to hear more.
