So sloppy people aren't allowed to defend themselves with firearms?
Not everyone is a salesman. Some just like the goods.
I find absolutely nothing wrong with her, except that I'm not likely to ask her out on a date.
I'm with Mac.
I don't dress like that. My wife doesn't dress like that. My daughter won't dress like that.
But that doesn't mean the woman in the pic shouldn't be open carrying.
Like it or not, she bears a strong resemblance to the average American.
I'm actually glad to see her carrying. It shows that normal people do what normal people do, and when they do it, they carry for their protection.
This does more to normalize open carrying than a guy like me (military background, neat-not military-haircut, trimmed beard, in good physical condition, dressed conservatively) because when someone sees me in khakis and a polo shirt or a tie open carrying, they think I'm an off-duty cop or detective and go back to grazing. Nobody mistakes her for an agent of the state. They look at her and see a woman who takes her own safety seriously. Probably a mom. Probably a wife. Certainly someone's daughter. Good to see her taking care of herself.
