    I live in Vermont, a state with a very liberal open-carry law.

    Yet we just don't have these mobs of idiots parading around town with their prosthetic penises on full display. We never have, and I venture to say we never will. Also, I could be mistaken -- but I even think you can conceal- or open-carry in a bar in Vermont. Oddly, I don't worry about this or feel at all unsafe the way I would elsewhere.

    While I don't disagree that existing laws in states like Texas encourage these nutjobs, I think other factors are also in play. I'm genuinely curious about the differences between people's comportment in Vermont re: guns compared to other places.

    Perhaps I'm just being willfully naive?

    You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that's what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant... oh, fuck it. -- M. Gustave
