    So everyone can see where the guns are pointed, and who has them.

    Gives others a sporting chance to get away.

      refers to a Georgia state supreme court decision:

      GA decision that upheld open carry, and prohibited concealed carry because it gives secret advantage to unmanly assassinations.

      Likewise, in State v. Chandler, 5La. Ann. 489, 490 (1850), the Louisiana Supreme Court held that citizens had a right to carry arms openly: “This is the right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States, and which is calculated to incite men to a manly and noble defence of themselves, if necessary, and of their country, without any tendency to secret advantages and unmanly assassinations.”

          It says:

          incite men to a manly and noble defence of themselves
          So it doesn't restrict women explicitly, right? So yeah, why not? Women, being free of any burden of a manly defense, can defend themselves using all their secret advantages.
