Lately, groups of armed people have been carrying heavy weapons into restaurants and stores in an effort to somehow, through terrifying shoppers, make the world more comfortable with being near large weapons. Open Carry Tarrant County, Open Carry Texas, Gun Rights Across America, and other extremist groups claim that members, who often do nothing to create the distinguishment between “Good Guy With Gun” and “Bad Guy With Gun,” make people safer simply by being present — and, of course, packing heat.
So, how do we tell if someone is a violent psychopath hellbent on death and destruction, or a peaceful, gun-loving patriot? Thankfully, Reuben Bolling addressed the problem in his comic strip, Tom the Dancing Bug. This helpful infographic explains how one is to know if they are dealing with an Open Carry patriot, or if a person is a danger to those around him.
Follow this handy dandy guide and you’ll never wonder if you should fear for your life, or shake a person’s hand to thank him for protecting your freedom by exercising his right to take a gun to the grocery store.
