Response to liberalnarb (Original post)

11. So far no sightings in Texas

I live in the Dallas area and I don't know anyone that is really for the idea of people walking around with a gun openly strapped to their hip.

The company I work for has decided to be gutless and not have an explicit policy on open carry in their stores. I had a short, sharp exchange with a senior manager and expressed my displeasure and unwillingness to work with anyone that comes in openly armed.

But I doubt we'll see it that often.

The people that want to do this are a tiny tiny minority that have somehow garnered an extraordinary amount of influence and power because they vote in the primaries.

Most people, even if they have a concealed carry permit, have no desire to walk around openly armed.

And that is the problem that I expressed to that senior manager. The chances are that someone that is openly carrying is probably not quite right in the head. Otherwise, they wouldn't have any desire to openly carry.

That is the core problem. Only the crazies are paranoid and insecure enough to want to be armed all the time. The crazies are--and always have been--the problem...
