Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just glad to see me? (genghis)

”Packing in Public: Owners not gun-shy”

A delightful Sunday morning story from the L.A. Times via that Seattle Times link. The set-up:

”PROVO, Utah — For years, Kevin Jensen carried a pistol everywhere he went, tucked in a shoulder holster beneath his clothes. In hot weather, the holster was almost unbearable. Pressed against his skin, the firearm was heavy and uncomfortable. Hiding the weapon made him feel like a criminal.”
And also sexy/dirty. But let’s continue:
”One evening he stumbled across a site that urged gun owners to do something revolutionary: Carry your gun openly for the world to see as you go about your business. In most states, there's no law against that. Jensen, 28, decided to give it a try. A few days later, his gun was visible, dangling from a black holster strapped around his hip as he walked into a Costco. His heart raced as he ordered a Polish dog at the counter. No one called police. No one stopped him.”
Heavens to Betsy! I would imagine not. I shall quote no further except to say, read the whole thing. It’s about time we were able to come out of the closet, with our pieces in the open. Savvy AoSHQ readers will also pick up on the throwaway disclaimer line “…we’re here, we’re armed, get used to it.” Sassy! One little item in the story was kinda’ disturbing, though:
”He (Jensen) wore the gun to a Ron Paul rally.”
Now having second thoughts about all of this. Eh, we’ll take the good, the bad and the ugly…it’s all good in the end.

”Could give you a blow job that would knock your head clean off, punk”
