KIDS BOOK COVER: My Parents Open Carry

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Kali (a host of the General Discussion forum).

I found this over at Reddit.

This would comforting if we lived in a post-Apocalyptic zombie-filled world.

But we don't.

1. Bill Maher had this on tonight!

He wanted to know what the Dad was doing with his hand and, if they're so "safe," why are they using their daughter as a human shield?

11. And they claim to know Jesus I bet!

I was taught about Jesus by Jesuits and I once considered being a Nun. The Jesus I learned about would be unrecognizable to these people.

17. People are unique



IMHO the RKBA is important and I support it. I'm not an open carry (OC) proponent because, while OC can among one's limited group of friends and well known neighbors bring gun ownership out as normal and not evil, I believe it is more important to be respectful of those who may believe otherwise and I don't really believe that line of OC deterring crime. I believe that property/venue owners are entirely within their rights to decide what they are comfortable with regarding weapons possession on said property.

The number one shortage we have in this world is respect and the most critical shortage is respect for other people. One of my guiding principles is "Your number one Option for Personal Security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation."

It's been many years since I did any competitive shooting but I found it very enjoyable. I don't hunt and have no interest in stalking around woods. Attaching evil to an inanimate object strikes me as bizarre and illogical. I'm sure there are some very reasonable people who OC.

Regarding those people and Christian beliefs there is Luke 22:
35 Then Jesus asked them, "When I sent you without purse, bag or sandals, did you lack anything?"
"Nothing," they answered.
36 He said to them, "But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one."

20. I am not horrified, I just think it's funny. I know hunters, cops, and soldiers for decades

and none ever felt the need to take a gun into a grocery store or Target.

These open carry folks are either paranoid or mistakenly think that gun gives them some power over their lives.

19. Guns in the Home and Risk of a Violent Death in the Home: Findings from a National Study

http://aje.oxfordjournals.org/content/160/10/929.full#ref-30

Data from a US mortality follow-back survey were analyzed to determine whether having a firearm in the home increases the risk of a violent death in the home and whether risk varies by storage practice, type of gun, or number of guns in the home. Those persons with guns in the home were at greater risk than those without guns in the home of dying from a homicide in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 1.9, 95% confidence interval: 1.1, 3.4). They were also at greater risk of dying from a firearm homicide, but risk varied by age and whether the person was living with others at the time of death. The risk of dying from a suicide in the home was greater for males in homes with guns than for males without guns in the home (adjusted odds ratio = 10.4, 95% confidence interval: 5.8, 18.9). Persons with guns in the home were also more likely to have died from suicide committed with a firearm than from one committed by using a different method (adjusted odds ratio = 31.1, 95% confidence interval: 19.5, 49.6). Results show that regardless of storage practice, type of gun, or number of firearms in the home, having a gun in the home was associated with an increased risk of firearm homicide and firearm suicide in the home.

Previous SectionNext Section

Over 50,000 homicides and suicides occur each year in the United States (1), making them among the leading causes of death, particularly for young people. In 2001, homicide was the second leading cause of death and suicide the third for persons 15–24 years of age (2). Approximately 60 percent of all homicides and suicides in the United States are committed with a firearm (2).

Although an estimated 40 percent of adults in the United States report keeping a gun in the home for recreational or protective purposes (3), the risks and benefits of this practice are widely disputed in the literature (4, 5). Ecologic analyses have suggested a link between the prevalence of gun ownership and rates of homicide and suicide (6–8) and between regulations restricting access to firearms and rates of homicide and suicide (9–12). Although these studies are useful in demonstrating an association between access to firearms and rates of homicide and suicide at the aggregate level, it is not possible with this methodology to adequately assess whether access to a gun increases the risk of a violent death at the individual level.

GUNS

News stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about efforts to strengthen or weaken gun control legislation in any jurisdiction in the United States, national news stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about high-profile gun crimes, and viral political content from social media or blogs that would likely be of interest to a large majority of DU members are permitted under normal circumstances.

Local stories about gun crime and "gun porn" threads showing pictures of guns or discussing the merits of various firearms are not permitted under normal circumstances and should be posted in the Gun Control and RKBA Group.

Open discussion of guns is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.
