With open carry en vogue today the way concealed carry was in the 1990s, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is criticizing the NRA, stating it “normalize[s] behaviors that are unsafe.”
According to Mom’s Demand Action, the open carry push is the NRA’s fault and is creating a “slippery slope” into chaos and danger.
Moms Demand Action claims open carry is bad for “children and families,” that it makes it harder for people to ascertain who is and is not a member of law enforcement, and that it makes shopping at Kroger difficult. And this is all the fault of the NRA because they dared point out that “the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”
However, Moms Demand Action also inadvertently discloses the truth about open carry by admitting that “open carry is legal is over 40 states.”
Breitbart News previously reported that it is legal in 44 states, with various state and local stipulations. And Moms Demand Action is all worked up because Texas is on track to become number 45. Far from fringe or “unsafe” behavior, this is mainstream, and it is not due to the NRA’s “radical rhetoric,” but a desire to exercise Second Amendment rights without infringement.
Nevertheless, Moms Demand Action says open carry is just one more ingredient in a “cocktail of crazy” created by the NRA.
