+1....my rights end where his nose begins...so what if he wants to do it differently...if I don't help him excercise his rights...what's gonna happen when I'm the target??? Rights are rights...agree or disagree...don't give legislators the idea we're divided, or we'll have hell to pay....

I want the surprise...not the attention....only plus I can see in Tx getting open carry is if it is written to stop the punitive action if a coat rides up or shirt flies up on a CCW permit holder...and it may not be written that way...with open carry, it seems that there would be no more need to punish those who printed or accidently displayed....but I can't see myself carrying in town...unless all hell breaks loose, in which I will be carrying openly anyways...you and I will BE the local law enforcement...the sworn officers will be busy defending the government and will be needing all the help they can get....I can't see "setting up" situations to force LEOs to act, provoking something, then suing either for money or to make a point...that's not what responsible gun owners would do.....now, if an open carry citizen was minding his own business, acting within the letter and spirit of the law, and was misused by authorities who knew better and were just being oppressive...or by private business owners who did wrong...then I'd support him in using the legal process in getting it stopped and changed for the right.....

Bottom line for me....concealed carry gives me the best advantage against evil, and causes me and LEOs and other citizens much less concern....and that's my choice....requires a bit more diligence...sometimes a bit uncomfortable...but that's the way I can serve my country and my fellow man...I don't mind at all....

been reading this morning on the OC effort in Tx....I'll bet we'll get it next session....our pro-gun Gov. has already said there ought to be no place that a checked-out CCW permit holder can't carry....it IS a deterrent....the more we have nailed down and carefully defined what our rights are...the harder it will be for them to take them from us.....they work like termites...if we aren't vigilant....one bite at a time, they'll eat our rights...and we might not notice till it's too late....liberal, controlling gov't works like this...we'll take an inch....if you don't scream bloody murder, we'll take another, then a foot...if we don't get slapped for that....and so it goes....they need to know we're watching, we will not stand for it, and they will pay a price if they try it....

Man, that one thing right there makes it worth all the "inconvenience" it might cause!!! Israel arms/trains about 15% of its adult citizens and they MUST carry...usually concealed...a prospective terrorist never knows who...and we'll never know the lives it saves.....I'd like to see the CCW licenses here say MUST carry...that alone would triple the number of guns in the crowd next time some weasel wants to go out in a blaze......
