We have open carry laws here in California, but you have to carry an empty gun.  Businesses are free to invite you to leave the premises.  Occasionally some jack asses gather in a few restaurants in San Diego County, but for the most part it's just not done, because if you cross paths with the law while carrying a gun, the cops can and will blow your shit clean away. ;-(

Empty. Good idea

Problem is that "empty" is a temporary condition.  You can slam a clip and lock and load in less than two seconds and a 9mm round can make a hole in a perp and then kill a kid a hundred feet away.  On the other hand California just passed a law that enables the police to go to court and remove any and all guns from a person who is suspected of mental illness for 21 days and they don't get them back unless the go to court and prove to the satisfaction of a judge that they're not a threat to others or themselves.

The OK Corral is not in Texas.

Open carry is not an appropriate way to "remember the Alamo".

I suspect that there will be relatively few open carry permits issued to nonwhite members of the population.

To some white Texans, open carry will mean open season re the largely unarmed black and Hispanic population.

2nd amendment, the bill of rights, all amendments, the constitution .. words written by men, kind of like the bible ... always open for interpretation and adaptation to changing centuries circumstance. I'd be ok with "Obama taking our guns" if by OUR we're saying .. idiots. Fuck 'em. Take their grapefruit spoons too.

The cartoon (well done haha) reminds me of the recent incident in Michigan where a woman with legal conceal and carry dropped on some suspected shoplifters in a Home Depot parking lot. Bullets flying out there in a public place of business: the kind of place I frequently find myself in the pursuit of peaceful business.

Last I heard shoplifting is not a crime punishable by death. Last I heard citizens are not judge, jury, and executioner. I don't like conceal and carry, non-conceal and carry, any of it. I don't like that the average testosterone fueled drunken asshole (or his wife or daughter) is allowed, practically encouraged, to carry deadly force.
