Open Carry Movement

Again, I find myself stunned by what I didn't know. According to an article in the L.A. Times a number of gun owners in the U.S., "are part of a fledgling movement to make a firearm as common an accessory as an iPod. Called 'open carry' by its supporters, the movement has attracted grandparents, graduate students and lifelong gun enthusiasts."

28-year-old Kevin Jensen from Utah has always carried his weapon in a holster under his clothing, “then 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.”

It seems that, “In most states there's no law against that,” notes the Times.

“Jensen thought about it and decided to give it a try. A couple of days later, his gun was visible, hanging 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 the police. No one stopped him.”

Maybe I am totally naive, but I find this just astounding! Is this for real?
