Governments get very upset when anyone interferes with their monopoly on violence.

There is no reason why everyone does not carry openly. Indeed my solution would be that you (everyone) must carry a visible weapon or be suspected of carrying a concealed weapon.

There is a very good reason why I don't open carry. I dislike jail.

True but that is not my point. My point is that open carry is the way to deal with concealed carry. We should be advocating for more weapons and knowing where they are, not for less weapons and not knowing where they are. Open carry requirements would address this issue. IE if you are carrying a weapon you must carry it where everyone can see it. Also everyone who is not under some ban of carrying a weapon must carry one. This would put a dead stop to much of our crime 'problem.'

...And you live in a fascist state, apparently.

Open-carry is always legal in Arizona, at least under state law. The cops here find out-of-state visitors calling them just cause people are walking around wearing guns to be very amusing, in an irritating sort of way.

Guns, guns, guns. Love, love, love. America needs guns and love.

As humans, we have an inherent right to life. Our right to life (or self-defense) is a natural right and does not come from any document, even the Constitution. The Bill of Rights or the first ten amendments to the Constitution simply acknowledge our natural rights. Specifically, the Second Amendment recognizes our natural right to bear arms for self-defense.

Guns are the reactive, defensive answer to evil in the world. Love is the proactiveanswer to evil. We need both—guns and love.


Good men express themselves through love; love...
