GOA Supports the Texas “Open Carry” Movement

Gun Owners of America has come out in strong support of efforts by Texas gun owners to combat anti-gun bigotry by exercising their rights to carry openly in public.

The Executive Director of GOA told the Wall Street Journal:  “I see open carry as a positive thing…”

Pratt went on to say that gun owners should “consider what’s the most effective way to educate the public.”  And, although open carry may not be every gun owner’s “cup of tea,” we believe that open carry by those so inclined is a desirable — and necessary — means for combating the liberal media’s efforts to make Americans terrified of firearms.

FK – And call them ‘weapons.’ That’s what they are. They are made to kill and maim. Welcome to the real world. Those creatures that have a problem with reality don’t belong in this country.
