    the crazed guy there to shoot up the McDonalds (it does happen) or the mall from someone exercising their constitutional rights?  Should people be forced to look for cover every time they are out in public?   Should they become so immune to the presence of heavyily armed people that they are sitting ducks?

    If these whack jobs actually cared about freedom, protecting people and all the other shit they spout, they wouldn't be for open carry in everday situations.

      it didn't run completely against the threat of "infringing" on their 2nd Amendment rights, I would suggest some kind of emblem, badge, or uniform issued after it has been proven to the degree possible that these really are good guys.

      In the old West, you could tell who was the good guy and who was the bad guy. The good guy wears a white hat and the bad guy wears a black hat. Wait, that was "Gunsmoke" and other TV westerns. Paladin was the exception. He wore a black hat. It could have been green, but it was black and white TV. But I digress.

      These idiots walking around with guns slung across their backs just do not seem to get that they are complete strangers to all the rest of us and there is no way to tell just by looking at them whether they are out for a fight or out for a Right.  Some kind of visual clue would be helpful.
