Tonight was a good night. I met up with some fellow open carry dudes downtown after work and guess what...? We killed NO ONE!
Tonight was my first time downtown openly carrying and I have to admit I was a bit nervous at first about being hassled by the LEO's for exercising my Constitutional right. I almost left my sidearm at home but didn't want to piss on my own parade. I strapped on my sidearm and said to myself, "whatever happens, happens" and I'm so glad I did. The people I met were either curious, naive, ignorant or pumped why I was carrying a firearm in public.
The first dude I came across asked me if it was a "toy gun". I said, "no". He then asked if I was "a cop". I said, "no". As he stumbled for more questions I just told him that it's my Constitutional Right and handed him the pamphlet. I won't call him a dumbass, I won't even call him a liberal dumbass, I will just call him naive.
That's the whole point to this exercise. To educate people about their rights and show them that just because I'm walking around the downtown streets carrying a firearm doesn't mean that I'm gonna light up a school or a crowd of people. If anything, if some asshole does choose to do that, he'll be met with a volley of return fire to his torso from everyone else who's legally carrying a firearm. Simple. I hope I never have to draw my weapon on someone in a gunfight. However, if I do, I won't regret it, and more importantly I won't be the victim.
The ignorance when it comes to firearms is astonishing to me. Most people are fucking stupid! They're afraid because that's how they've been spoon fed by the ignorant LSM. "Guns kill people", "Guns cause crime", "Guns are a menace to a civil society", blah blah fucking blah.
Bullshit! People kill people, people cause crimes, and people are a menace to a civil society. More guns = less crime. It's been proven time and time again.
Anyways, it was a great day at the car show today. We got a lot of thumbs up from the educated people and a few stink-eye looks from the naive. That's okay. Slow and steady wins the race. There were a few women that asked us about the law and seemed interested in the rules n' regs as far as Open Carry in Kalifornia goes and that puts a smile on my face. I hope we'll see them next week with a sidearm. Firearms aren't confined to males. In fact, we need more women defending themselves. It's pretty hot if you ask me! WTF wimmin??
There were a lot of bitchen cars I should've taken pictures of, but as a first-timer, I was more concerned with delivering the message and spreading the word without looking like some "racist Teabagger". Besides, there were a lot of sun dresses and low cut tops tonight and I was distracted. I did get a shot of this bitchin mobile though...
Good times! GOD Bless America!
