leading self defense lawyer and competitive shooter calls Texas Open Carry jackasses [View all]

A friend of mine sent me this. I pondered about using it, but the point of the op ed outweighs the source. While I disagree with some things and ambivalent about other opinions he expresses here, like repealing the Gun Control Act, I completly agree with the point of the op ed.
I also think that anybody engaged in the practice of “Open Carry in YOUR FACE!!!” (henceforth “OCIYF!”) is behaving like a jackass.

Actually, I think they’re worse than that, but I’m trying to keep this a family-friendly post.

What, you might ask, is “OCIYF!”? It’s an activity, usually orchestrated among multiple participants, to openly carry firearms for the deliberate purpose of drawing attention to themselves, usually by means of frightening a populace unfamiliar with the sight or practice of open carry. They typically to do this to increasing degrees until they compel action against their “OCIYF!” activities, at which point they express outrageously outraged outrage.
