“Rich,” an Oklahoma gun dealer who runs a YouTube channel where he discusses a variety of gun-related topics, is a strong advocate of open carry. In fact, he approves of it so much that he recently spoke out about the situation that has recently been developing in Texas–in an unexpected manner!
Lately, the Open Carry zealot community has been too much even for the NRA. Despite the backpedaling after Open Carriers began cutting up their NRA cards, the NRA expressed discontent with the means by which the groups have been spreading their message:
“Let’s not mince words, not only is it rare, it’s downright weird and certainly not a practical way to go normally about your business while being prepared to defend yourself. To those who are not acquainted with the dubious practice of using public displays of firearms as a means to draw attention to oneself or one’s cause, it can be downright scary. It makes folks who might normally be perfectly open-minded about firearms feel uncomfortable and question the motives of pro-gun advocates.”
Rich enjoys his right to openly carry a handgun but clearly draws a distinction between openly carrying and carrying for attention, saying:
“So now I have a f*cking AR strapped across my chest, and I’m walking through Walmart with my Tasty Treats, okay? What do I look like now? Well first off, I look like an a*shole, okay? Plain and simple. I look like an a*shole. Second, I look like a f*ckin’ psycho . . . I look like a lunatic right now.
Quite honestly, if I walked into Walmart like this, even here in Oklahoma, the first thing that’s gonna happen is people are gonna flip plum the f*ck out. The second thing that’s going to happen is those people who are flipping plum the f*ck out are calling 911, and then the cops are going to show up, and I’m going to be ‘all surprised’ about it. No I’m not. I expect that to happen. Why? Because I’m carrying a f*cking AR in Walmart. Seriously.”
Rich shared the difference between gun rights advocates like him and ammosexual terrorists like those who belong to Open Carry Tarrant County:
“. . . The point is, is that people should be able to eat their burritos in peace without a bunch of neck beards carrying ARs and AKs around. And just recently, they invaded a Target store. Now I’m gonna get a lot of flack for this, I get it, but here’s the thing: Open Carry Tarrant County is like the demonic offspring of Westboro Baptist Church and Boko Haram.”
“You’re not educating people. You’re scaring them…What you guys have done is you’ve set us back — you’ve set the cause in Texas back. You’ve made it so that in certain places firearms are no longer welcome, where these establishments have never had a problem with it before.”
